"Acts of Kindness" are Contagious at MRH

During the Christmas season, Cardio Department staff at Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) cooperatively show their appreciation to their department secretary with a carefully chosen personal gift. This year was different in many ways.

Karen Newbegin, Cardio department secretary had a special request. She asked if they would consider planning a party in the New Year in honor of her son Kevin Newbegin for the Long Term Care residents, staff and family.

Kevin had passed in February 2019 after a tragic accident and left behind 2 beautiful children and his wonderful wife. He was notorious for doing random "acts of kindness".

The Cardio department staff planned a special pizza party luncheon on January 29th at MRH that included Long Term Care residents, staff, family and friends. It was an "act of kindness" and a great way to honor Kevin and support his family.

“MRH employees are like family and we support one another especially in our greatest times of need.”
