St. John’s Spreads Holiday Cheer

Posted on December 19, 2018

FAR ROCKAWAY, 2018—Wednesday, December 19, St. John’s Episcopal Hospital completed its yearly Adopt-a-Family Program distribution. As participants in this program, patients in need and their families were able to receive holiday gifts this year thanks to the generosity of St. John’s team and community members.

Patients and clients enrolled in the hospital’s Behavioral Health Outpatient services or discharged from the hospital in the past year were referred to the Adopt-a-Family program by hospital staff members on their treatment teams. Among the families referred are those made homeless because of fires, domestic violence, and loss of work, as well as battling various financial and medical difficulties.

Various community groups, including congregations in the Diocese of Long Island and St. John’s staff members, donated gifts for this yearly initiative.

“St. John’s is committed to the families that receive care from us beyond the completion of their clinical treatment,” said Gerard Walsh, CEO of St. John’s Episcopal Hospital. “Today’s Adopt-a-Family event is evidence of these efforts."

The staff at St. John’s would like to wish all a happy, peaceful holiday season!
