Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center's auxiliary members will make a $200,000 donation to the Francis Cheney Family Place and award five with scholarships at a Friday luncheon.
The donation from the 300-member volunteer group will go toward renovations of the Cheney Family Place, lodging for family members who have loved ones in the hospital. The remodel will include a new kitchen, new dining area, handicap-accessible restrooms, new floors and furniture.
The five recipients to receive scholarships from the Emilia Tuttle Scholarship Fund for Medical Education include second-year recipients Taylor Pena and Janny Tan and first-year recipients Tess McEwen, Gus Simms and Emily Tsai. The awarded funds total $10,500.
