The holiday season is a special time of year to remember those who are close to our hearts! Remembering and honoring our loved ones through the Tree of Life Celebration helps spread that love with others in our community. Proceeds from the Mishawaka Tree of Life are distributed by The Foundation of Saint Joseph Health System to support In God's Arms. In God's Arms is a special program available to those who have experienced either recent or past pregnancy loss at less than 20 weeks gestation, working closely with Palmer Funeral Homes and The South Bend Medical Foundation to facilitate the burial of any remains at a special site in Southlawn Cemetery. This program is offered to anyone in our Michiana community. Proceeds from the Plymouth Tree of Life will support the Plymouth Medical Center general needs. Thank you for helping us fulfill our Mission to provide a compassionate and transforming healing presence within our community.

Honor or remember someone you love this holiday season. For a $10 donation, your loved one(s) name will be on display the main lobby of our Mishawaka and Plymouth hospitals. Names received prior to Nov. 22, 2019 will be displayed.

You are invited to join us as we celebrate and reflect upon the blessings in our lives at both Mishawaka Medical Center 6pm on December 5th, 2019 and Plymouth Medical Center at 2pm on Dec. 6th, 2019.
