In the late 1800s, Myra Brookfield was dismayed that the medical care she needed required her to travel out of Morristown. Determined that her hometown should have its own hospital, she bequeathed her house and property for just that purpose. Today, though the location and name have changed, Morristown Medical Center thrives, indebted to Myra and those who care enough to keep her dream alive.
The Brookfield Legacy Society recognizes those visionaries who, like Myra, are helping us keep our hospital strong for future generations.
As thanks for their generosity, Brookfield Legacy Society members enjoy our annual luncheon, financial planning and personal health seminars, courtesies when hospitalized, and recognition in perpetuity on the hospital's Founders Wall.
"When someone reflects on his or her life and finds an organization that has contributed to the fullness and quality of the journey, a planned gift is the ultimate thank-you."
