The history of the St. Mary's building has been one of healing, helping and leaning since its beginnings in the late 1950's as Rogers, Arkansas' first public hospital.

In October 2008, Mercy Health System donated the former St. Mary's Hospital campus, which includes six out buildings, to the Jones Trust for the establishment of a Center for Nonprofits.  This donation provides a unique opportunity to expand the vision of the Jones Trust into Benton County and develop a regional example for sustainability through the re-use of the buildings, increased operating efficiencies, and increased service capacity for the nonprofit tenants.

 By reducing the number of capital campaigns, partner organizations and local funders are expected to save at least $20 million in capital costs by relocating to the Center.
