Celebrating Your Newborn

We believe that the birth of a baby is an event to be cherished for a lifetime. That's why we offer an exceptional birth experience that includes taking time to celebrate your newborn.

Baby Hall of Fame

The birth of a baby is one of life’s happiest occasions, bringing together family and friends.

St. Joseph Hospital created the Baby Hall of Fame to share this special joy with others. This stunning display in the Mother-Baby Unit resembles an infant quilt made up of individual tiles inscribed with the names and the birth dates of babies born at St. Joseph Hospital.

Your gift of $250 will honor baby’s birth with an inscribed tile for the “quilt.” If family or friends purchase a tile, a congratulatory letter will be sent to the parents of the newborn, informing them of the gift and the donors.

The Baby Hall of Fame supports our Women’s Services programs, and ensures that excellent medical care at St. Joseph Hospital will be available to our community for years to come. This child will begin making a difference in the lives of others from the day they are born.

Gifts to the Foundation are cumulative and your donation will be added to your past and future contributions for recognition on the Donor Wall, located in the hospital lobby. Gifts to the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation are deductible as charitable gifts for those taxpayers who itemize their deductions.
