Personal Health Services for Benefactors


What is the McQuade Society?

The McQuade Society was established by the administration of Ascension St. John Hospital to show its appreciation of our benefactors and loyal supporters.

As a service for our committed hospital donors, membership offers personal navigation for any and all health services your family may need provided by a dedicated donor relations manager who is available 24 hours a day. Our goal is to ensure your complete satisfaction when using the hospital.

Ascension St. John Hospital values the generous, charitable support we receive from our benefactors. The service provided by the McQuade Society is our way of saying "thank you."
