Foundation Appeal to Donors

  • When you or a family member has a serious injury or illness, St. John’s is here for you.
  • Each year, our emergency department handles over 8,200 visits. Compassionate and dedicated board certified emergency medicine physicians and highly-trained nurses are available 24 hours a day to stabilize, diagnose and treat patients and – if necessary – to arrange for transfer to a larger hospital that can provide a higher level of care.
  • When you or a family member requires the aid of advanced technology when seeking a diagnosis, St. John’s is here for you.
  • This year, St. John’s installed a ‘patient-friendly’ MRI which has the ability to offer shorter scan times and shorter breath holds. In addition, the new machine’s design is more spacious than that of older models, which helps minimize stress for patients and results in a reduced number of patients who require sedation when having an MRI.
  • When our friends and neighbors need assistance accessing hospital services, St. John’s is here for them.
  • Over 45 women received support this year from the St. John’s Women’s Health Fund, which provides mammograms at no cost to uninsured and under-insured women. With support from the fund, breast abnormalities can be identified early, which is essential to successful treatment.
  • As the only acute care hospital serving the Jackson Hole area, St. John’s exists to serve you and your loved ones by providing the best possible services in a healing environment. We are grateful for the exceptional generosity of our community, which has helped our medical center provide a level of services that is unusual for a community of our size.
  • Your continued support for hospital programs and services through a gift to the St. John’s Hospital Foundation ensures that our medical center can continue to provide comprehensive and high quality medical services. Thanks to you, our caregivers have touched the lives of thousands – whether they faced an urgent need, needed help managing a chronic disease or sought to achieve optimal health.
  • Your gift this year in the amount of $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 – can make all the difference. With your truly generous support, the Foundation can help fund the purchase of advanced technology, provide education for our nurses and clinical staff, support outreach programs that help community members in need, and offer services that keep our community healthy.
  • And if you’d like, you can specify your gift to a particular area – Capital Equipment, Staff Education, or a particular department or program such as Oncology, Emergency Services or the Women’s Health Fund – wherever you choose.
  • As medical care advances, your community hospital is committed to being the medical center of choice – for you, for your loved ones, for every person in our community. Please help to make this possible with as generous a contribution as you can this year.
  • Your gift will be used wisely to help the hospital expand and enhance its programs and services.
  • In gratitude for your continued support,
  • Phil Coosaia, Chair, St. John’s Hospital Foundation
  • Dr. Lou Hochheiser, CEO, St. John’s Medical Center
