  Annual Campaign
St. James Mercy Hospital

Dear Friends and Supporters of St. James Mercy Hospital,

On behalf of the St. James Mercy Foundation Board of Directors, thank you for taking time to visit our website. In doing so, you join many other community partners who recognize the value St. James Mercy Hospital brings to our region as a transforming, healing presence providing quality healthcare to all.

Sincere thanks, as well, to all those who provide financial support through St. James Mercy Foundation’s annual campaign. Your contributions make possible a wide range of facilities improvements, equipment purchases, program development, and staff support.

In 2011, the annual campaign raised over $117,000 in private funds. Charitable gifts to the Foundation through the annual campaign and other opportunities made possible a range of facilities improvements, capital equipment, and program initiatives, including: bariatric equipment for physical therapy clients; cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation equipment; lead analyzers for pediatric clinics; and "Reach out and Reach" program (in partnership with Hornell Walmart) to support early childhood literacy and wellness.

The 2012 annual campaign is underway, and I urge you to commit now to playing a role in that effort, both by making a pledge of financial support and by volunteering your time and talent. For more information about how you can help us make a difference for St. James Mercy Hospital and in our community, please contact Foundation staff at (607) 324-8240, or make a gift online above. Every dollar contributed is used to support quality healthcare services and outcomes.

Thank you again for your interest and support. Together, we make quality matter for our community.

Beverly Gilbert, Chair

The 2012 Annual Campaign for St. James Mercy
Each year, the St. James Mercy Foundation conducts an annual campaign on behalf of St. James Mercy Hospital.

With the help of nearly 350 community members, business partners, employees, providers, and friends and donors like you, SJM Foundation exceeded the 2011 annual campaign goal of $100,000, raising over $117,000. Charitable gifts to the Foundation made possible a range of facilities improvements, capital equipment, and program initiatives, including:

  • Management leadership training (Studer Group)
