The James F. McDonough, MD, Fund, named for the beloved OB/GYN at Winchester Hospital, pays for nurses to get their certifications, further their educations and, in turn, their careers.
Generous donors and the annual James F. McDonough, MD, Golf Classic keep the fund going. This year, for the 15th anniversary of the golf tournament, the nurses who have benefited had a message for those donors.
“My father-in-law revered nurses,” explained Deb McDonough. “Two of his sisters, a daughter and a niece all chose that time-honored profession. He also appreciated the talented and dedicated nurses he worked with at Winchester Hospital. His quiet philanthropic leadership for nursing education made huge ripples of impact in our community.”
