The JMH Guild has a long-standing history of lending helping hands and hearts. Since established in the post-war era of 1948, Guild members as volunteers have come alongside hospital leaders and employees to provide resources and perform tasks to meet the health needs of our community.

During that time we were experiencing severe inflation and labor unrest similar to what we are experiencing now. Starting and ending 2021 in a pandemic, plus the cyber attack in the last quarter of the year upon JMH caused a few setbacks — yet we persevere. Through it all, thank you, for supporting The Gifting Tree and special sales throughout 2021. Because of you, we are able to honor our commitments and continue to share encouragement with our hospital family and neighbors.
