Our World Made Better - BJC in the Community

BJC HealthCare often hears from community members, patients, family members and colleagues about the ways BJC and its employees have made a difference in their lives, in the lives of their loved ones or in the communities BJC serves.

Here, we’ll share with you some of those stories and words of gratitude, as well as examples of BJC’s ongoing work to benefit the community, support charitable organizations and improve the health of those it serves.

BJC In the Community

Taking steps toward healing

Robert Schmitz 0 116

Swimming, dancing and remembering their loved ones — these were some of the activities campers participated in at the 21st annual Stepping Stones camp, operated at no cost to campers by BJC Hospice. The three-day-long bereavement camp is offered to children ages 6-12 who have experienced the death of a loved one. Professional staff and volunteers lead the camp, which offers a safe place to explore grief, anger and fear — balanced by plenty of fun.

​Gearing up for a baby has different challenges for military moms. BJC Veterans Connection members supported local military families by collecting items for the American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter Women Warriors baby shower, a celebration for 75 active duty and veteran moms and their spouses, June 22, at Jefferson Barracks. Volunteers from BJC also organized gifts beforehand and attended the baby shower.
