2022 Calendar Events for Members

Speakers Luncheon | February 10, 2022 

As our annual membership drive and “friend-raising” event, members and their guests will enjoy a seated lunch as they listen to a specially-selected prominent keynote speaker who will discuss a variety of topics.

Backstage Pass Orientation | April 14, 2022

This social luncheon is a behind-the-scenes look at health care where new and existing members can meet one another, learn about the year’s programs, and take a special tour of St. Joseph’s services.

Project Selection Meeting | May 19, 2022

This is the heart of our program. Members will hear presentations from St. Joseph’s physicians and team members on some of the most pressing medical needs of our community. Together, the entire membership will join in deciding which program, project or new equipment will be funded.

Celebration Meeting | October 27, 2022

After a break during the summer months, members enjoy this casual lunch where
they have an opportunity to catch up with friends and hear directly from a patient regarding the selected projects that were funded, and how they are impacting care at St. Joseph’s Hospitals.

2021 Philanthropic Grant

Monarch Robot


With lung and bronchus cancers now the number one rate of cancer death in the US, St. Joseph’s Hospital has expanded our Lung Program capabilities to include the Monarch Robotic-Assisted Bronchoscopy. Thanks to a generous donation from the Philanthropic Women’s Group, St. Joe’s is the first facility in the Tampa Bay area to offer this life-saving technology.
