Jack and Janet MaCris
The late Jack MaCris, M.D. arranged for a charitable gift annuity in the name of his wife, Janet. In his own words, Dr. MaCris explained his rationale for making this planned gift to St. Anthony’s Hospital. "Having spent most of my 34 years of professional life practicing surgery at St. Anthony's Hospital, I developed an affection and dedication to its commitment to serving the health care needs of the community in the best way possible. In my practice, I looked upon St. Anthony's as a partner in caring for my patients. The Sisters, the dedicated professional and lay staffs and the facilities were vital in providing quality care. Over the years, it became apparent that the primary limiting factor against St. Anthony's Hospital doing more was financial. Therefore, it is a pleasure and a privilege for Janet, my wife, and I to contribute to helping St. Anthony's continues its presence in our community.”
Dr. MaCris passed away in August 2014, leaving behind a valuable legacy of his love for and dedication to St. Anthony’s Hospital. In the meantime, Janet MaCris, his widow, continues to receive an income stream for life paid from the annuity and important tax benefits as well.
