Bank of America donates $100,000 to St. John's in Joplin

Posted online
Bank of America today donated $100,000 to St. John's Mercy Health of Joplin Foundation.

"St. John's has been blessed with support from all across the country," St. John's President and CEO Gary Pulsipher said. "As we rebuild - not only our hospital, but also our community - we value the partnership and assistance from organizations like Bank of America."

Since the May 22 tornado, St. John's Mercy has been in a rebuilding mode. The hospital began in a temporary field hospital, like those used by the military. In early fall, the field hospital was replaced with a hard-sided modular hospital.

Work is currently underway to prepare for the opening of a 150,000 square-foot component hospital in spring 2012. The component hospital will serve as St. John's primary location until the completion of the permanent hospital in 2015.

"As the restoration of Joplin progresses, Bank of America is proud to provide assistance that will enable St. John Mercy to sustain and improve the critical medical services they provide to area residents," said Jamie Esch, Bank of America marketing president. "It is comforting to know that they will be able to continue their significant role as a leader in providing much needed health care for the well-being of individuals and families in the community."[[In-content Ad]]
