Helping Us Stay Strong Now and In the Future

Like many local residents who count on their community hospital for health care, trustee Laura Hilderley and her husband Dave realized soon after moving to Rhode Island how valuable a community hospital was for many of life’s events. As a result of their gifts, Laura and Dave became members of Kent's 1951 Society.
