MORRIS – Four new members were inducted into the Morris Hospital Foundation Legacy Society when the group gathered Nov. 1 for its annual reception.
The new members are Charlotte Finn of South Wilmington, and Kim Landers, Mike and Melissa Wright, and John and Kathy Roundtree, all of Morris.
The Legacy Society was established in 2005 to recognize those who have committed to providing a bequest or other testamentary contribution to the Morris Hospital Foundation through a will, trust or other estate planning vehicle, as well as a charitable gift annuity, according to a news release from the hospital. The new inductees bring the total membership to 76.
Mike Rittof, president of Morris Hospital Board of Directors, and Mark Steadham, president and CEO of Morris Hospital, welcomed the guests to the event and thanked fellow Legacy Society members for their commitment to Morris Hospital, according to the news release.
Vice President of Development Ginny Kelly gave remarks about the new Legacy Society inductees, and in keeping with tradition, new members were then inducted, with each receiving a Legacy Society pin.
Kim Landers, vice president of Patient Care Services at Morris Hospital and new Legacy Society member, led the storytelling portion of the evening. Landers talked about her commitment to Morris Hospital and the Morris community. She said she is looking-forward to creating a long lasting legacy of nursing leadership at Morris Hospital.
