Friday, June 23, 2017

GARDNER — Heywood Hospital’s 25th Anniversary Golf Classic, held on June 19 at the Oak Hill Country Club in Fitchburg, raised more than $100,000 and renamed the annual event in honor of longtime Executive Chairman James Faust, MD and Chairman Chris Watkins.

The money raised will support Heywood Hospital moving forward with the full-scale design of a new Surgical Pavilion, to replace the current operating rooms, designed and built in the 1960s. The hospital is a member of the Heywood Healthcare system that includes Athol Hospital and the Quabbin Retreat in Petersham.
