It is through the continued support of the community like this from President & CEO Jan Morse and the bank that Anna Jaques is able to thrive and raise the level of patient care we provide to our patients.

"I am very proud to be affiliated with a hospital that provides such high quality care and exceptional patient experiences. The Birth Center is incredibly important to the families of our community, and the renovation will make the facility as outstanding as its care. I am proud to say I was born at Anna Jaques," said Jan Morse, President & CEO of Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank.
Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank was founded with the purpose of giving children an opportunity to save for their future. This major donation to the Birth Center is a testament to the Bank's commitment to children and families in our community, by helping us provide them with the greatest start possible.
A sign that will read, "AJH Birth Center Given by Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank," will soon be displayed in the Birth Center acknowledging the bank's incredible support.
