  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.

Donors & Supporters

Junior Board of ChristianaCare

In 1888, women in the local community raised $10,000 to build and equip Wilmington’s first hospital. Thus began the tradition of the Junior Board, the vibrant, independent organization that provides financial and volunteer support to advance the mission of ChristianaCare.

The Junior Board of ChristianaCare is a not-for-profit corporation with its own board and volunteer membership. Guided by a commitment to community service and support of the health system, its members give of their time and talents, raising money by reaching out into the community and by operating the gift shops in both hospitals. They also hold the annual JB Cause Fundraiser, which provides support for a variety of services and programs within ChristianaCare. And they support ChristianaCare initiatives  that drive outcomes-focused, patient-centered care for our region.

Celebrating the Junior Board’s 130th Anniversary!

Junior Board members log thousands of hours by volunteering at both hospital campuses and participating in fundraising activities. They can be seen in their distinctive pink jackets at the Information Desk, Surgical Waiting Lounge, and Maternity Department at Christiana Hospital. They also serve at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center. At the Wilmington Hospital, Junior Board volunteers work as Greeters at the entrance to the hospital as well as in the Emergency Department and the Surgical Waiting Room. Volunteers also staff the hospital gift shops. To provide cheer and comfort to patients and their families, the Junior Board provides floral arrangements in the hospital chapels and delivers poinsettias on Christmas Eve to hospitalized patients.

Does the call to serve speak to you?

ChristianaCare’s ability to reach out to so many people in the extended community is, in great part, thanks to the Junior Board members not only committed to, but driven by the quest to raise money, serve this health system and help us care for our neighbors. Please, consider joining or supporting us. Together, we can do so much more for the health of our community.
