Memorial Hospital’s fourth annual golf tournament “A Summer Breeze” – with two flights of golf, a poolside dinner reception with a steel drum band, awards, live and silent auctions and raffles – raised more than $127,000. Guests heard news about Memorial from former President and COO Edward Schottland, Development Foundation Chair Virginia Roberts, surgeon Alfredo Cordova, MD, and one of Dr. Cordova’s grateful patients who spoke about the life-saving and life-changing
surgery he received at Memorial.
year’s tournament was again generously presented by Med Tech Ambulance Service. Proceeds will support the renovation of the operating room patient support areas to create a therapeutic environment for patients, caregivers and families so they will have a comfortable place to rest and feel supported. Because the event was so successful, the hospital will also purchase a perioperative C-arm, a mobile imaging machine that provides high-resolution x-rays in real time so surgeons can monitor progress at any point during an operation.
Special thanks to tournament co-chairs, Gary Reis, president and CEO, and Beth Reis, certified public accountant and CFO, from Med Tech Ambulance Service, the Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Memorial Hospital Golf Committee.
