Our History

The Jordan Hospital Club began in 1906 as a group of eight women who helped the hospital by wrapping bandages, sterilizing instruments and performing duties to aid the nursing staff.

Now, over 100 years after its founding, the Jordan Hospital Club has grown to more than 350 members. Led by an active Board of Directors, hundreds of volunteers donate thousand of hours of service. Through our signature events, we are able to make meaningful monetary contributions to Jordan Hospital.

Our largest annual event is the Polar Plunge which takes place on Nelson’s Beach on the first Saturday of March. Sixteen years and running strong, the Polar Plunge has raised and donated over $1,000,000, to the Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center.
