Thundermist Health Center Hosts 50th Anniversary Gala
Thundermist Health Center celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a gala on Thursday, October 10 at the Roger Williams Botanical Center. The night was spent reminiscing on all the years we have provided care for our communities.
“It is hard to believe that we have been providing care for fifty years,” said, Jeanne LaChance, President/CEO of Thundermist. “It is our passionate and caring donors that make Thundermist a place where the most vulnerable in the community can turn for health care, no matter their life circumstances.”
At the gala, the Woonsocket community room was dedicated to the Dr. Francesco Cannistra, Thundermist’s founding medical director. His dedication, passion, and vision of access to quality health care for everyone in Woonsocket continues to guide our mission. The room is a safe and welcoming space available for our community.
The event raised nearly $40,000 with all proceeds benefiting the patients and programs of Thundermist Health Center. This funding will also help Thundermist achieve its mission to improve the health of patients and communities by delivering exceptional health care, removing barriers to that care, and promoting healthy lifestyles.
