The Jordan Hospital Club began in 1906 as a group of eight women who helped the hospital by wrapping bandages, sterilizing instruments and performing duties to aid the nursing staff. The JH Club adopted as its mission, "Excellence in health care, right here in our community, where and when we need it, requires our support and advocacy." Today we continue to the live the mission that was started over 100 years ago.
An active Board of Directors guides the membership in both raising funds and serving as ambassadors for the hospital. Our three signature events include the Polar Plunge in March, the Duxbury Lawn Party in June, and Kayla's Beat Goes On 5K Road Race in October. We also have an endowment fund to continue our work for the next 100 years.
Our members are actively involved in organizing the events, serving on committees, participating in the events and fundraising. We are grateful for the involvement and dedication of the Jordan Hospital Club members and supporters, as we give $200,000 annually to the Jordan Hospital. The money raised is used for the Nursing Scholarship Fund, the Teddy Bear Program, the Hibiclens Program, the Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center, the Birth Place, the Cardiac Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center, the Critical Care Center, annual holiday decorations, the mobile craft cart, comfort care and the bookmobile.
