Exceptional support for critical care at RMH

As active members of the community, Paul and Beth Cross are very aware of how many people benefit from care at the Ross Memorial Hospital. However, their recent visit to the ICU was not related to an illness or injury — rather to lend their support.

In 2015, the Cross family committed to a multi-year pledge to purchase equipment needed for the Ross Memorial’s Critical Care program, which includes the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, and the Medical program.

Paul and Beth visited RMH to present the second installment of their pledge. During their visit, Emergency Department and ICU Manager Carole McBride and Registered Respiratory Therapist Tara Smith welcomed the couple into an empty ICU room to demonstrate how medical technology is used to save patients’ lives, and to thank the Cross family for their generosity.

The Crosses are grateful to be in a position to give back to the community that is home to their business Lindsay Buick GMC Ltd. They feel strongly about supporting their local hospital, and appreciate learning more about the technology used in the Intensive Care Unit.

“Paul and Beth’s gift to the hospital will help our sickest patients—people of all ages whose conditions are dire,” said Erin Coons, Executive Director of the RMH Foundation. “We’re happy they had the opportunity to hear from our frontline staff exactly how their support will impact patients. The Ross team is profoundly grateful to local donors. They’re our partners in care.”
