Service and leadership in our community

St. John’s Society for Service and Leadership members come together to support specific emerging priorities or established services at HSHS St. John’s Hospital each fiscal year. St. John’s leaders and members of the ambassador council of St. John’s Society for Service and Leadership work together to identify the specific item, project or program of focus for the year.
