“I am excited to join the Park Ridge Health Foundation Board of Directors and to serve accomplished and engaged members of our community. The Board strives to build goodwill, encourage community support, form partnerships, and raise funds in a spirit of generosity that benefit Park Ridge Hospital’s commitment to patient care and wellness service for the community. Most recently the Foundation has assisted with and supported the expansion, redesign, and improvements to the behavioral health and emergency departments. “
Coming up on May 10, 2018 the Foundation is hosting their annual gala at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel. The theme this year is “Experience the Silver Screen.” Attendees are to come dressed to the nines as their favorite Hollywood star and enjoy a night of elegance, gourmet food, entertainment, silent and live auctions, and to get a chance to win a trip for two to Hollywood, California. MWB is a proud sponsor for the gala event this year. Click here for more information about Park Ridge Health Hospital and here for information about Park Ridge Health Foundation.
Proceeds from the gala event will fund new pieces of equipment and technology that will implement additional advance care opportunities for patients. The new technology is telemedicine. Telemedicine is the ability to provide interactive health care utilizing modern technology and telecommunications, to reduce costs and improve patient health. Now, in many cases, patients don’t need to leave their home, office or school to go to the doctor’s office. Instead patients use a virtual doctor who is able to diagnose medical issues and can prescribe an appropriate course of action. No more waiting rooms or worrying about catching some bug while in the Doctor’s office! That’s smart!
