"It amazes me that when all is said and done, we always seem to have an affair that equals or surpasses the previous year," said Dennis Serafini, Chairman of the Bay Medical Foundation Board. "This year is no exception."
Serafini went on to say that this year's project ("Celebrating Life") is to add six (6) new patient suites to the Brian's House. This will allow Brian's House to accommodate fifty percent more patients and families with inpatient skilled hospice care. "Our success is a tribute to the dedication of our local health care system to provide high quality care to the greater bay community," Serafini added.
Serafini, thanked the many who contributed, including the sponsors and donors of items for auctions, volunteers, board members, as well as staff and guests.
