St. John’s & The Community
Supporting a Healthy Jackson Hole
Medical services don’t amount to much if they don’t meet the
needs of the community. We consider ourselves proud members of Teton County
and want to do more to help you, our friends and neighbors, be the happiest
and healthiest you can be. In our 100+ years in Jackson Hole, we have
seen it grow into a vibrant, beautiful town with plenty to offer, and
we are proud to say we have contributed to that effort through community
wellness services and job opportunities.
- The following are some of the ways
Community Wellness – Our health and wellness services have grown exponentially over
the years to help people fight disease before it starts. The
worksite wellness program is a particularly beneficial service that provides local businesses
with excellent medical resources for their employees. This includes physicals,
on-site health courses, fitness screenings, and more.
Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)
– The annual CHNA is a survey of the general health condition of the community
to determine what health issues local residents experience the most and
how we can help prevent them. The results of this program help us decide
which services to expand upon moving forward to better meet the needs
of the community.
The Living Center – Long-term care for our community is offered through the St. John’s
Living Center. This is a nursing home facility that provides compassionate
care to elderly residents and others who need more involved medical needs.
We do not simply address the resident’s condition, we cater to their
needs as a person and strive to give them a better quality of life.
Economic Growth – Our community reach extends beyond wellness. St. John’s is
a major employer of local residents. During fiscal year 2014, St. John’s
paid $32 million in employee salaries and $8 million in payments to local
vendors. With the ripple effect, this resulted in even greater economic
value for the community.
