The Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center on Friday celebrated the life and contributions of Delysia Ione Duncan by naming the hospital's administrative hallway containing medical records and executives suites in her honor. Mrs. Duncan's son, NBA legend Tim Duncan, was on hand for the ceremony as the hallway was named “The Delysia Ione Duncan Hall”. The recognition was JFL's way of expressing gratitude to Mrs. Duncan, who according to the hospital "through her many years of service leading with integrity and purpose, left an indelible imprint on the hearts and souls of all those who knew her." 

The hospital also expressed gratitude to Mr. Duncan who over the years has supported the hospital, with his latest gifts to the medical center being a medical-grade oxygen generator.

“We honor Delysia Ione Duncan, who, during her time at JFL, served as a dedicated mid-wife. Naming this hall for Mrs. Duncan will undoubtedly make her impact known to all who walk it. We thank her for being a team member here with us and it is such a pleasure to pay tribute to her and her memory,” said Interim JFL CEO Dyma Williams.

“We greatly appreciate Tim Duncan’s donation as it helps us to assure that every patient that enters the doors of the new JFL North has life sustaining oxygen made right here on JFL property. Without a doubt, he is a healthcare hero and Virgin Islander committed to the betterment of the Virgin Islands as we Rebuild Today for a Healthier Tomorrow," Ms. Williams added.

JFL said it will continue to honor the legacy of Mrs. Duncan and remains grateful to Mr. Duncan. Those who would like to make a donation to the hospital should send an email to
