A Letter from the St. John Health System Foundation President

November, 1, 2016

A letter to our community supporters:

Since 2013, St. John Health System has been a part of Ascension, the largest non-profit healthcare system in the United States. While many things within the health system have changed since then, the commitment to our patients, especially service of the poor, has continued as it has for all of St. John’s 90 years.

This fall, St. John will begin to co-brand with Ascension. Through advertising and other presentations, you will see an Ascension logo beside one for St. John as a visible reminder of Ascension’s and St. John’s commitment to better healthcare for all of eastern Oklahoma and southern Kansas.

Let us assure you any donation you make to the St. John Health System Foundation will remain local.  The St. John Foundation is committed to serving patients within the region; your generous gifts will serve St. John Health System’s many departments and programs, assuring those whom we serve will receive the best in medical and spiritual care.

We offer our thanks for the many ways you have supported St. John in the past, and look forward to your continued support as we redefine healthcare excellence.



Lucky Lamons, President, St. John Health System Foundation
