Our celebration of the careers of Gerard Diesfeld, MD and Mary Kwiatek, RN was made possible by a friendly and loving crowd, some of whom were able to share remarks about their work with these two tremendous healthcare professionals.
Their impact on our hospital, our nursing home and our community has been and continues to be meaningful to BCH patients and employees.
Dozens of other individuals, business representatives and volunteers came together to support the purchase of a new electrocautery generator for the BCH Surgical Department, and we are thankful to them all.
Special thanks to the members of the Springville Jazz Orchestra and their conductor William Cocca for performing, to the Springville Concord Garden Club for beautiful centerpiece arrangements and to Empire Merchants North for our wine tasting display.
The Foundation’s mission is to fund equipment and improvements for your local healthcare facility, and with community support through events like this, we continue to do so. Thanks to all who are a part of our work in keeping healthcare local.
