Gannetts Honored for Service

William (Bill) and Nancy Gannett, of Hopedale, were honored recently at Milford Regional Medical Center’s annual meeting as the Board of Trustees’ first Trustee Emeriti. The Gannetts are retiring from the board after more than 76 years of combined service to the hospital.

Milford Regional’s Board has chosen to honor individuals, through this new designation, for exemplary service to the Corporation, the Medical Center, and the community. The position of Trustee Emeritus recognizes a minimum of 20 years of Board and community service, participation in Medical Center events and activities, philanthropic support as well as ongoing advocacy and ambassadorship of the Corporation. Bill and Nancy served on the Board together since 1978; Bill joined ten years prior in 1968. He is the grandson of Milford Regional’s original founder Eben Draper.

During his annual meeting speech, Francis M. Saba, Milford Regional’s CEO, described Bill and Nancy as modest, humble, kind and sincere. “They have earned every bit of our gratitude,” he stated, “They simply are very good and special people whom we all love.”
