Panama City – Gathered in the nearly-complete patient tower, Officials from Bay Medical announced the headlining act for their 25th anniversary Society Gala.
Still wearing a hard hat, Gala Chairman Rodney Morris, M.D., grinned proudly as he announced that this year’s entertainment will feature Las Vegas headliner Gordie Brown.
Brown has been voted Nevada’s “Entertainer of the Year,” and also received awards for “Best comedian,” “Best Show,” and “Best Entertainer.” His acts typically include music and comedy, and an array of celebrity impressions.
It’s hoped that the November 19 gala will raise $200,000 or more to help equip the new 144-bed Patient tower. On-time and under-budget so far, the grand opening for the patient tower is scheduled for September 8th, with the first patients moving in on September 9th.
Every one of the rooms in the new tower will be private, and each has a view. Many of the more clinical aspects common to a hospital room are tucked away, and there are even family areas where those visiting relatives can relax. Just off where the new cafeteria will be, a “Healing Garden” offers patients and visitors a natural area to help them unwind.
