100 Years of Leading Community Wellness
St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson Hole, Wyoming is celebrating its 100th anniversary! St. John’s Episcopal Church, demonstrating great leadership and resolve, built Jackson Hole’s first hospital in 1916. The Church was responsible for operating St. John’s Hospital for more than four decades, until a community board was formed to oversee the growing health care needs of the region. To learn more, explore the website and discover a storied history with deep roots in the Jackson Hole community.
Stories from the Community
Discover this history of St. John’s from Jackson locals.
In 1916 Reverend Royal Balcom, who was the Episcopal Minister at that time, was talking to two other men in one of the local bars. Reverend Balcom suggested, "Why don't we build Dr. Huff a hospital?" As told by Dr. Donald MacLeod
I remember he removed Leonard Timmermeyer's appendix in the office in our house and then he carried that man upstairs to the bed.
As told by Gretchen Huff Francis
