The annual Hannibal Regional Foundation Cornerstone Society Banquet was recently held to recognize and thank the Cornerstone Society members for their invaluable support, as well as demonstrate the difference their donations make in the lives of community members. Dr. Wendy Harrington, CEO and President of Hannibal Regional Foundation; Mr. Todd Ahrens, CEO and President of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System; and Dr. Joseph Bean, Chair of Hannibal Regional Foundation Board of Directors, offered their appreciation to all Cornerstone Society members and thanked them for continuing their investment in saving lives and having a positive impact in our community.
A very special guest for the evening, Mr. Bill Berry, HRHS Patient and Advocate, shared his personal story of his hip surgery and recovery in the Inpatient Rehabilitation wing which the Back to Better campaign helped fund. Mr. Berry shared his appreciation to everyone at Hannibal Regional for the role they played in helping him to recover from his surgery. Berry shared that every person who cared for him was obviously firmly committed to excellence and he is very proud to have such excellence in healthcare in our community. The evening was concluded with the recognition of new Cornerstone Society Members as well as those whose level of giving increased in the past year. The Cornerstone Society Banquet was a beautiful evening that showcased the compassionate and quality care offered at Hannibal Regional Healthcare System and the countless patients and families who benefit from Hannibal Regional’s commitment to excellence in healthcare.
