Virtua supports Ronald McDonald House Charities
Virtua President & CEO Richard P. Miller presented a check for $10,000 at the annual Ronald McDonald House Charities Phone Bank. This year’s telethon raised over $1 million that will be used to support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children in the Philadelphia region.
The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Virtua Memorial and Virtua Voorhees have offered respite to the families of our pediatric patients and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) babies. Like a home away from home, the Family Rooms provide much-needed comfort and support to our patients’ families,” said Mr. Miller. “Virtua is very proud to be a sponsor of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.”
CBS 3 and CW Philly 57 hosted the telethon that included special appearances by on-air personalities from CBS TV and Radio stations in Philadelphia. Mr. Miller and several other Virtua employees volunteered on the telethon’s phone bank accepting donations.
