LONGMEADOW Over the past 100 years, Jewish Geriatric Services (JGS100) has established itself as a trusted, not-for-profit, healthcare resource for people of all faiths; touching and improving the lives of families and individuals since 1912. To celebrate its centennial year, JGS100 is presenting a series of events to recognize its achievements while renewing its commitment to provide compassionate healthcare to the greater Springfield community.
"Of course we are gathering to celebrate 100 years of great accomplishments, but these events are also a perfect way to bring people to our campus to educate them in all that we offer a full continuum of services delivered with compassion and commitment to excellence. We also believe these events are a way to recognize our loyal volunteers and engage new volunteers," JGS Chairman Martha Finkel Ceppetelli said.
According to Stephen Krevalin, chairman of the JGS100 committee, the centennial year will also focus on examining the future of healthcare and how to best serve the greater Springfield area. "We need to do things to insure that we will be the premier healthcare agency for our elderly and infirm for the next 100 years," he said.
"The board and the JGS community is 100 percent behind that concept. They have committed to creating a plan to meet our mission for generations to come," Krevalin added.
