Milford Regional’s Golf Tournament Has Record-Breaking Year

Milford Regional Medical Center’s 24th Annual Golf Classic held on Monday, August 26, at Franklin Country Club was a record-breaking tournament raising over $345,000! Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the new intensive care unit (ICU) at Milford Regional and the Oliva Fund for Cancer Care.

Funds raised by the golf tournament, an estimated $264,000, will support a new ICU as part of the Medical Center’s $54 million building project. The 116,000-square-foot expansion, which includes a 38,000-square-foot underground parking area, also comprises a new emergency department and additional private patient rooms. The new ICU will grow from 10 rooms built in the 1980’s to 16 spacious rooms that better accommodate the latest medical equipment.

Funds raised by local radio station WMRC 1490 through their annual Radiothon brought in $81,300 for the Oliva Fund for Cancer Care. In its seventh year, the WMRC Radiothon has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars of assistance to the daily, ongoing needs of cancer patients at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center at Milford Regional Medical Center.

“Once again, the community has demonstrated tremendous support for the hospital and our patients through their involvement in our annual golf tournament,” says Francis M. Saba, Milford Regional CEO. “Every year, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of area businesses, volunteers and individual supporters within the towns we serve. Their contributions will help in our efforts both to expand hospital services through the addition of our new building and meet the daily needs of patients at our Cancer Center.”
