Memorial Hospital held its first annual gala event on May 13, 2010. Still Cruisin…After All These Years proved to be a great success with approximately 225 attendees.
Gala participants enjoyed dressing in 50’s fashion, eating great food, bidding at a silent auction and learning about the Memorial Hospital Foundation through several fun videos which showed the foundation’s role in bringing new technology and needed funds to the hospital.
Proceeds from the gala will help with enhancements to Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department. The immediate goal for the Emergency Department is to renovate the space to be used more efficiently by remodeling to create a more open, comfortable waiting area; a more private registration process; and improving the flow of an emergency visit by establishing one entrance instead of two. One future goal for enhancement will be to provide more private patient areas in the emergency room itself.
