On September 9, 2016, St. John's Medical Center will mark the 100th
anniversary of the dedication of the first St. John's Hospital with
"Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Future," a ceremony featuring
the sealing of an anniversary time capsule and the introduction of new
medical center CEO Paul Beaupre, MD.
"We are honored that Wyoming Governor Matt Mead, who was born at
St. John's Hospital, will participate in our celebration by making
the opening remarks recognizing the significant role St. John’s
has played in our region," said community relations officer Karen
Connelly. "We invite the entire community to share this important
occasion with us."
The celebration will begin at 10:30 am under the white tent at St. John's
Medical Center, with refreshments, a display of the contents of the time
capsule, and the Minor Keys, who will play music popular in the early
part of the 20th century.
At the close of the ceremony, the anniversary time capsule will be sealed
and placed in its resting place for the next 50 years. Everyone is welcome
to submit ideas for items to include in the time capsule. A committee
of hospital employees will consider suggestions and determine final time
capsule contents. The theme is "Healthy Jackson Hole 2016."

The anniversary time capsule will also include winning entries from a
youth essay contest, open to children entering grades kindergarten through
eight. "There's more to a time capsule than leaving a remnant
of who we are today. We also leave our hopes and visions for the future,"
said essay contest coordinator Mary Katherine King. "The children
of our community are the future doctors, nurses, and leaders of Jackson
Hole." For rules and forms for the essay contest, visit
