The event raised approximately $40,000 to benefit the Continuing Medical Education (CME) program and hosted more than 250 guests including Hallmark Health’s Board of Trustees and Corporators, medical staff, donors, the business community and staff members.
The CME program offers weekly lectures, fosters comprehensive medical libraries at both Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and provides on-line resources that can be accessed directly in patient care areas.
In toasting the event, Hallmark Health President and Chief Executive Officer Michael V. Sack, praised the importance of the CME program and commended the medical staff.
“Day in and day out our medical staff makes a tremendous contribution to Hallmark Health and our community,” he said.
The event was co-chaired by Edward Butler, MD, chief academic officer for Hallmark Health System, and Eric Henrikson, MD, chairman of Imaging Services at Hallmark Heath System.
