Circle of Life Breakfast held
The second Circle of Life Breakfast sponsored by the St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation drew over 60 people to the Spirit Center last Wednesday. The program included introductions Jim May, SMHC Foundation Development Director, an update by Casey Meza, CEO, and presentations by two former patients. The breakfast is a culmination event from the regular Cirlce of Life Tours of the hospital and clinic.
“The primary purpose of the tours and the breakfast is to educate people about the hospital and clinic and the people that work there,” said May. “The secondary purpose is to invite people to join our Healing Legacy program which helps provide a solid financial foundation for the future of health care in the region. Although people are given the opportunity to participate in the legacy program our utmost goal is to have everyone learn more about our hospital, use the services and appreciate the availability of local health care. We understand that not everyone is in a position to donate financially. That is not what is important. What is important is instilling confidence in the life saving work that goes on every day atSM. We hope everyone in the community will eventually tour the hospital and attend the breakfast.”

The public tours will resume in the fall. Tours for civic groups, sororities, employees of businesses can be arranged by calling the SMHC Foundation, 962-3251 extension 327.
