Center’s 100th anniversary, working in conjunction with filmmaker
Jennifer Tennican, historian Tracy Lamb, representatives from St. John’s

photographs, and interviews,” said Craighead. “The history
of the hospital in Jackson Hole is a storied one, with roots deep in the
Stories, photos, and other relevant information Craighead discovers will
find a home on
SJMC100.org. “We wanted to share the excitement of our centennial celebration
with the community,” said Karen Connelly, Chief Communications Officer
at St. John’s Medical Center. “SJMC100.org not only allows for visitors to read the history of the Medical Center
but to also tell their own stories.” Community members are encouraged
to become part of the process by submitting their own anecdotes of St.
