Community

In 1883, Miss Anna Jaques sought the advice of her family physician, Dr. F. A. Howe, on how best to use her money to benefit the community. He told her that the community needed a hospital and in 1884, Anna Jaques Hospital opened its doors.

What started with Miss Anna Jaques and rings true to this day - community support and philanthropy enables our hospital to be here and in turn care for it. Anna Jaques is deeply invested in advancing the health and well being of our local communities - just in the care we provide, but through the support, participation and resources we share.
