Pooh Bears for Molly 

This campaign was established as a memorial to Molly Kathleen Gibson, a Franklin Community High School student who tragically lost her life in a car accident in 1998. Pooh Bears for Molly provides newborns, pediatric and adolescent patients at Johnson Memorial Hospital a special "bear hug" to keep them company during their hospital stay. 

The Johnson Memorial Hospital Foundation and Molly’s family and friends invite the community to donate to this program throughout the year, but especially during February, which is Pooh Bears for Molly Month.

Stuffed Pooh donations are accepted, however they must be new and in proper packaging. Contact the JMH Foundation office at 317.346.3703 for more information.

Employee Emergency Fund

Johnson Memorial Health Foundation

An Employee Emergency Fund has recently been started by the Foundation with the assistance of the Indiana Members Credit Union. The Employee Emergency Fund operates as a grant program to help JMH staff members with emergency expenses. No one should have to make a choice between buying food for their table or dealing with an unexpected financial emergency. The Johnson Memorial Health Employee Emergency Fund helps in times of unexpected need with grants and interest-free loans. Some funding examples are unexpected car troubles, medical bills, utility, rent or mortgage assistance, recovery from a natural disaster or fire , employees who have suffered the death of a spouse, child, or parent. It is estimated that each year we will be able to assist at least 50 employees directly through the Employee Emergency Fund and additional through outreach and education.
