Med Tech Ambulance Service sponsored Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island’s fourth annual golf tournament and dinner, which took place on July 22, 2015. Themed A Summer Breeze, the event included musical entertainment and silent and live auctions. The tournament also featured an inaugural poolside dinner. Patients joined the festivities as well to share their personal experiences of receiving care from the hospital. An awards ceremony followed to highlight tournament winners.
The charitable event raised more than $127,000, which will be used to enhance operating support facilities. Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island intends to renovate areas used by families and patients, making them more therapeutic and comfortable. Additionally, the success of the tournament makes it possible for the hospital to purchase a perioperative C-arm that will improve visual monitoring throughout operating procedures.
