For over 100 years, MJHS Health System has relied on the generosity of donors to provide programs and services to the community. It started in 1907 with the help of charitable support and Four Brooklyn Ladies. And it hasn’t wavered since.

A lot has changed over time, but a lot has stayed the same too. Today, we still depend on the generosity of donors to continue to provide care that is not always covered for by insurance.

Your Gift in Action are compilations of real-life stories that bring our mission of caring for our community, to life. And we couldn’t do it with out your continuous support.

From new program to important partnerships and grants, every step forward means better, more affordable health care for those in need. It’s all about helping people live their very best lives, no matter what state of life they are in.

And we could never do it with you.
