Janice C. Jones believed that a community’s health was only as good as the health of its individual citizens.  As a registered nurse, she began working for the Public Health Service in 1926.  Despite severely inadequate resources, Nurse Jones rendered a variety of clinical services from a small clinic on Archer Street for twenty years.  She extended the scope of her medical services throughout north Tulsa with visits to the homebound, the elderly and in special clinics on pediatrics, tuberculosis and prenatal care.  Nurse Jones’ untiring efforts for health care in north Tulsa resulted in the establishment of the Variety Health Center in 1945.
