St Mary Announces Tree Planting and Dedication for Earth Day


For the first time, Dignity Health – St. Mary Medical Center will be planting and dedicating Magnolia trees on the hospital campus in celebration of Earth Day. St. Mary Medical Center is grateful to be receiving a donation of four trees from the City of Long Beach’s Sustainability Department.

According to St. Mary Medical Center Foundation President Drew Gagner, it is often said in philanthropy that providing for our organization is akin to planting a tree that will someday provide shade to someone we will never know.  St. Mary will dedicate a tree on Earth Day to WWII Veteran Elmer McClintock, a member of our Sister Alphonsus Legacy Society, who recently passed away in February 2016 at the age of 97.
