Our hearts are broken at Benson Area Medical Center with the passing of our Board Chair, Elaine J. Todd. Elaine served as chair from January 2012 until her passing yesterday. She was a tireless champion for BAMC and always had at her heart the mission of this organization to provide excellent healthcare to everyone in our community. She cared deeply not only for our patients but also for our employees. In 2017 she was honored by the North Carolina Office of Rural Health as the Board Chair of the Year.
In October our Board of Directors honored Elaine with an original piece of art which hangs in our lobby. It is a reminder to all of us of the grace and spirit Elaine gave to her work here.
While her legacy has been left in many places throughout this community, there is no place greater than the legacy she has left at Benson Area Medical Center.
