We’ve asked you to Join the J, both literally – last October in Spencer Smith Park as we formed the world’s largest human letter J – and figuratively, as we believe that by working together, we can make big things happen. And with your generous support, you are proving that to be true. As a community you have come together to help make the new Michael Lee-Chin & Family Patient Tower and the future of healthcare in this community a reality. And we want to say thank you for your generous support. There is more work to be done to provide this community with the healthcare that we all envision. Renovations to our existing tower will continue through 2018, and we continue to need your help to support the ongoing critical needs of the hospital. Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of the Pasquale and Anita Paletta Family and their match challenge we have raised more than $57 Million towards our $60 Million Our New Era Campaign goal. Our community has responded to the Paletta Family’s challenge and have continued to support our hospital with over $3.5 Million raised, and matched by the Paletta Family for a total of more than $7 Million raised since the Match Challenge was announced in September 2016. On the following pages, we are proud to share the stories of some of our donors and the impact their support is having on care. Your investment in our vision is truly transforming local healthcare and making a difference in the lives of our community. Thank you once again for Joining the J and supporting leading practice healthcare close to home.
