About the Community Health Foundation

The Foundation, led by a volunteer board of trustees, works with the hospital to ensure successes in achieving our mission: 

to provide the highest quality medical care and improve the health of our community in alliance with our medical staff. The Foundation supports these goals through community outreach and education, as well as by seeking philanthropic support from grateful patients and community members, foundations, and businesses through outright giftsevents and planned giving, and works closely with the AJH Aid Association.

Hospital Corporators

Corporators are community leaders who also support Anna Jaques Hospital. Their input and advocacy strengthen local control of our hospital and are helpful to the Board in staying connected and engaged with the many perspectives in our communities.

Corporators annually elect the boards of Trustees of the Hospital, the Foundation and also individual Corporators. This is accomplished each year in a meeting held the first Thursday of March.
