St. John's Medical Center will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2016.
The hospital will recognize this milestone by creating a written and visual
collection of stories of healthcare in Jackson Hole. The process of gathering
stories will begin with a social event on Thursday, June 4, from 11 am
to noon at the Senior Center. Anyone interested in sharing stories, memorabilia,
or photographs about the history of St. John's Medical Center and
local healthcare is welcome to attend.
“When we hear stories about the early days in the hospital’s
history, it warms our hearts to remember how hard this community has worked
to help bring St. John’s Medical Center to where we are today,”
said director of community relations Karen Connelly. “We don’t
want the stories of patients, doctors, nurses and early hospital leaders
to be lost. We want to share them so the legacy of St. John’s and
the community lives on.”
Staff from St. John's and historian and filmmaker Charlie Craighead
will be available to help attendees brainstorm and share recollections.
As is customary, the Senior Center (located at 830 E. Hansen) will serve
lunch at noon.
