Fresh out of business school and new to Southern California, Jack Fulton got his first professional break at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in 1948, launching a distinguished career as a hospital administrator, in the insurance industry, and consulting in malpractice lawsuit prevention.
In this latter role, Jack felt he was truly making a difference in healthcare. Though focused on helping hospitals avoid litigation, Jack's recommendations led to safety innovations such as slip-resistant floor wax, newborn patient identification bands, and side-rails for all patient beds.
Jack felt indebted to the place where it all began, and shared PVHMC's vision to meet the community's need for quality medical care. So, he made sure to include the hospital in his charitable giving, especially after losing his beloved first wife, Mary.
A decade ago, Jack married Josephine, who learned of his esteem for PVHMC. "Jack was a bright and insightful man," Josephine asserts "and he always valued the care provided there." It was care Jack would need all too soon.
In 2009, faced with colon cancer, Jack returned to PVHMC as a patient. "He received attentive, compassionate and professional care" Josephine says. "We couldn't have asked for better care under the circumstances." Jack lost his battle in September 2009, but he wasn't done making a difference.
A major planned gift to the PVHMC Foundation from Jack's estate honors both his memory and his regard for the hospital. A future building will have an area named after Jack. "I appreciate and look forward to it," says Josephine, confident that Jack's vision will continue to be fulfilled.
