Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation proudly announces chairs for the 2010 Valentine Ball to be held on February 6, 2010. Dr & Mrs. Marc Reichel and Mr. & Mrs. Bill Nettle

Dr. Reichel is a partner in LowCountry Anesthesia, P.A.  His wife, Ty, and all four of their children were born at BMH.   Both are active members of the Beaufort community, where Ty sits on the Board of Beaufort Performing Arts. She is passionate about chairing of this year’s Valentine Ball.  “Whether it’s husbands working there, children being born there, or taking care of our grandparents there, all of us are touched by our hospital in some way.  Chairing the Ball is a small way of showing appreciation to the Hospital that cares for so many.”

Bill Nettles is Vice-Chair of the BMH Hospital Foundation.  He and Carolyn are active members of First Presbyterian Church where she is an Elder.  Carolyn also is on the Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation

and chairs its Scholarship Committee.  The Nettles have hosted many dinner parties and chaired various committees for the Ball. Carolyn says, “the Valentine Ball has made a tremendous impact on BMH by helping underwrite new services while strengthening existing ones.  Funding such a wide range of programs, the Ball touches virtually every family in our community.”

According to Alice Moss, Director of the Foundation of Beaufort Memorial Hospital, proceeds from the Ball this year are earmarked for the Emergency Department of BMH.  “This Department helps everyone in our community.  In these economically challenging times, the Emergency Department is a safe haven of medical care for all of us.  It’s there 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

Last year the Emergency Department cared for over 36,000 patients!
