St. Mary Mercy Hospital Golf Classic Raises $215,000 for new South Pavilion
St. Mary Mercy Hospital’s annual “Tee It Up” Golf Classic raised over $215,000 for the Generations Together Campaign. The funds support the hospital’s new 154,000-square-foot addition, the South Pavilion. A record number of golfers, a total of 268 people, participated in the fundraiser and silent auction that was held Monday, June 18 at the Meadowbrook Country Club in Northville.
Opening in fall 2012, the South Pavilion includes a new state-of-the-art emergency center and two floors of all-private patient rooms on the southwest side of campus. The project includes the renovation of current semi-private patient rooms to private rooms on the north end of campus.
