Women's Health Center Fundraising

Posted on August 3, 2020

St. John’s Episcopal Hospital (SJEH) is seeking donations to go towards the purchase of equipment for its new Women’s Health Center that is scheduled to open in 2021. SJEH intended to raise funds at its annual golf event that was to occur this summer, but the event was canceled because of the pandemic. The hospital is accepting donations on its website,, and is running a series of fundraisers via social media and email.

“We invite anyone to make a donation on the website,” said Nancy Leghart, Director of Foundation. “Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and will go directly toward purchasing essential, life-saving equipment.”

The Women’s Health Center will be located at 105-38 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, and will provide gynecological and obstetrical services, maternal fetal medicine, urogynecology, gynecological oncology, breast surgery, nutrition, behavioral health, 3D mammography, bone density, and ultrasound in one location. Donations will support the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment including:

A 3D mammography machine which allows us to see breast tissue details more clearly to uncover breast cancer that may have otherwise been hidden by overlying breast tissue

A bone density machine to measure women’s bone density to diagnose for osteoporosis and provide a fracture risk assessment

An ultrasound machine that produces high-resolution image quality
