Rosary Hall donor establishes $50,000 endowment to help support uninsured and under-insured patients

Gary Storch freely admits that he would not be alive today if it wasn’t for Rosary Hall at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.

Rather than waiting, he was moved to write a $50,000 check a few days later to establish the Gary and Patty Storch Endowment at Rosary Hall. ...Continue →
