Kelly Love and Shirley Gross are rock stars in the community, and their message as two who make a big difference at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center backed that up.
Last night, the dynamic duo of SW Washington health care support teams described not only how important Legacy Salmon Creek is to its community, but also how important our Rotary Club could be to them. The presentation was interesting and thought provoking.
And 22 people attended the meeting, one of the largest turnouts we've had for our new Rotary Club, which also proved the level of interest in learning more about what's happening at Legacy.
At the hospital, Legacy is setting record numbers but also is setting a pace for outstanding, state-of-the-art healthcare and surgical provision. Proof that the concern of a decade ago over the need for two hospitals in Clark County was way wrong. The medical side is also working to reduce the number of emergency room visits by providing Go Heath Urgent Care clinics in Battle Ground, Camas and Vancouver.
Legacy's Farmer's Market, RN bachelor's degree completion program, Neonatal ICU (NICU) patient and family reunions (400 people attended this year's event ), education programs and a new Healing Garden are among the programs that Gross is heading up for the hospital foundation.
It's quite impressive to see the great things happening at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, and it is exciting that the Rotary Club of Three Creeks has many opportunities to partner with them for volunteer activities.
