SJMO Spring Spectacular
Dr. Rahul and Melissa Mehta served as Honorary Chairs of St. Joseph Mercy Oakland's annual Spring Spectacular gala on May 11 at the Townsend Hotel. The featured guest speaker was Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford who talked about his special relationship with St. Joe's where he and his wife Kelly welcomed their twin daughters last year. Guy Gordon, from WJR, as the emcee, engaged Matthew in a lively dialogue on stage to an audience of nearly 400 guests.
St. Joe's presented the Mercy Legacy Award to Bloomfield Township Fire Department and Star EMS, the two partners in the hospital's Remote Specialist Visiting Providers (RSVP) program. RSVP brings trained paramedics into the homes of patients recently released from the hospital to assure they understand their discharge instructions, medications and have made their follow-up doctor appointments.
Proceeds from the evening will support the RSVP program.
