Memorial Hospital celebrated the unveiling of their newly renovated Primary Care and Oncology Practice on Thursday, September 29, 2016.
President & CEO Scott McKinnon was joined by Governor Maggie Hassan, Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Janice Crawford along with hospital staff, management and board members to cut the ribbon marking the completion of the biggest renovation at the North Conway hospital in years.
The 2-year $3.5 million project was completed this summer and was made possible in part through the generosity of donors, community members and charitable foundations.
In addition to the ribbon cutting, special recognition was given to donors who helped make the project possible. These donors include Roger Clapp, long-time hospital board member who passed away in 2013. Clapp arranged a planned gift in order to support facilities at the hospital. Special recognition was also be given to Dr. Miles E. Waltz, a beloved community doctor and for whom the hospital’s Medical Office Building will now be dedicated. The donation was made possible by a gift from Dr. Waltz’s children and their families, Mark Waltz, Ned Waltz and Martha Waltz Di Domenico. Appreciation was also given to the Oliver S. and Jeannie R. Donaldson Charitable Trust which supported the Oncology improvements through a grant.
The public was invited to a staff-led tour of each of the two renovated spaces from Primary Care and from Oncology & Chemotherapy. Tours were followed by light refreshments in the newly revamped Primary Care reception area.
