The title of this annual report is, “Building HOPE – Testimony and Testimonials for a New Cancer Hospital.” The Hospital got approval in the spring of 2006 to begin construction on the new 497,000 square-foot cancer hospital. The groundbreaking was on September 6, 2006. This report includes stories of some of the people who testified in support of the hospital: Mae Ola Riddick, Phyllis Medvedow, Dr. Frank Detterbeck, Chelsea Howell, Sally Howell, Bill Lacourciere, Debbi Zergiebel, Danielle Joyce, Barbara Cooney Oliver, Charles Vaugh, and Nancy Ahern. The year-end message contains detailed information on developments of the hospital during the year on pages 14-18. This year marked Marna Borgstrom’s first full year as president and chief executive officer of YNHH. There is a small “In Memoriam” section for physicians who have passed.
