Partners of HSHS St. Joseph's
A major source of fundraising for the medical needs of the community comes from The Partners events. The Partners of HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital was organized in 1970 to promote community understanding of the hospital and raise funds to support the medical needs of the community. The Partners have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide technology and renovations. Are you interested in becoming a member of this dynamic organization of volunteers? Email us today!
