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

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.

to your past and future contributions for recognition on the Donor Wall,
located in the hospital lobby. Gifts to the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation
