St. John’s Celebrates 110 Acts of Kindness


St. John’s Regional Medical Center, Joplin, Mo., celebrated 110 Acts of Kindness, an event that showcased instances in which St. John’s employees have gone above and beyond the call of duty to meet the needs of people in southwestern Missouri. The “acts of kindness” included emergency department staff members providing food, gifts and home improvement assistance to a family in need during the holidays; and medical records staff members making and presenting a quilt to a cancer patient. The event also marked the completion of St. John’s 110th year of service in Joplin.
