Mary Jo Brown inspires smiling legacy at Tufts Children's Hospital


Although Tufts Medical Center continues to mourn the loss of our beloved Mary Jo Brown, her warm smile will live on at Tufts Children's Hospital.

The Mary Jo Brown Smile Fund has been established through generous philanthropic support from Mary Jo’s family members, friends and former co-workers. Additionally, the Admitting Office on Proger 1 will be renamed The Mary Jo Brown Admitting Office. Mary Jo served Tufts Medical Center and Tufts Children's Hospital for more than 35 years, much of that as Director of Admissions.

To honor Mary Jo’s love and compassion for children, The Mary Jo Brown Smile Fund will support Child Life Services. Child Life specialists provide services to pediatric and adolescent patients in a wide variety of medical settings.
The Mary Jo Brown Smile Fund captures what was special about our colleague in a way that would have made her smile.
