October 20, 2014

GULFPORT, Miss.— On Friday, September 19, 2014, The Will Rogers Institute presented a check for $41,225 to the Memorial Hospital Foundation.

"We truly appreciate the generosity of the Will Rogers Institute. This piece of equipment gives our team another tool to treat critically-ill newborns at Memorial," said Dr. David Kuhlmann, Neonatologist at Memorial.

“It’s an honor for us to be able to partner with Regal Entertainment Group to fund the much needed equipment. None of this would be possible without their help. The staff at Memorial is doing such important work and we could not be happier to be a part of it,” said Christina Blumer, Donor Relations and Event Manager for The Will Rogers Institute.
