Humanitarian Gift Society

The two hospitals receive support through many means. The most revered and prestigious of these is the St. John’s Humanitarian Gift Society.  

The St. John’s Humanitarian Gift Society was created in 1952 by a dedicated group of business, civic and medical leaders who recognized the importance of making a significant investment to ensure the availability of high-quality health care resources to their community. Members play a crucial role in the hospitals’ mission by raising funds to ensure that St. John’s Regional Medical Center and St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital are equipped to maintain the highest standards of care for the twenty-first century and beyond. The group’s importance to the hospitals continues to increase as government funding cutbacks and the growth of managed care make private philanthropy an ever more vital factor in health care delivery.
