Jameson Junior Guild Remembrance Fund
The Jameson Junior Guild is the hospital auxiliary of the Jameson Health System. The primary role of the Jameson Junior Guild is to provide services to patients and to raise funds to improve healthcare services to the community. The Guild has donated over $6 million for building renovations and equipment since 1935.
The Remembrance Fund was created to provide individuals the opportunity to memorialize beloved deceased members and to remember happy events in life such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, sacraments and graduations.
Donations are used to purchase patient-care equipment. When a contribution is made, a card is sent to the family/person acknowledging that a donation was made in their memory or in their honor. The name of the person memorialized or honored is entered into the Remembrance Fund Memorial Book with the date and donor’s name written. The book is kept in the Hostess Shop located at the Jameson Hospital North Campus.
Tree of Life
A 100-leaf Tree of Life is a custom made tree located on the wall in the Same Day Surgery Unit of the Jameson Hospital North Campus. There are 10 engraved stones at the base of the tree. A donor acorn plaque is located to the right of the tree. The leaves are miniature brass plaques that are custom engraved. It is a classic design that allows for expansion of the leaves and the stones. For a $75 minimum donation, The Tree of Life will display the donor's personalized message forever.
The Children's Advocacy Center of Lawrence County
The Children's Advocacy Center is a private non-profit agency that is an affiliate of Jameson Health System. The Children's Advocacy Center is a child-focused organization with two distinct purposes: prevention and intervention.
Prevention through education and hands-on mentoring of families, with programs that begin at pregnancy, to promote happy, healthy and well-adjusted families and child development.
Intervention working closely with local professionals to address the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse cases in order to prevent further victimization of children.
Last year, there were 198 documented cases of child abuse in Lawrence County – 105 cases of physical abuse, 78 cases of sexual abuse and 15 cases of severe neglect and drug-addicted infants. Prevention is key in decreasing child abuse occurrences in Lawrence County.
Jameson Hospice of Lawrence County
Hospice is a special way of caring for end-of-life patients and offering support for their families. The emphasis is on comfort and palliative care. Hospice care is holistic. It looks at all aspects of the person, not just the terminal illness. Hospice services are routinely provided in the patient's home and services are available at several skilled nursing facilities in the area. Friends of Hospice is the fundraising volunteer group of the Jameson Hospice. They hold various fundraising events throughout the year.
