It was a gala evening Saturday at Turning Stone Resort Casino as the Rome Hospital Foundation conducted its annual gala.
The annual gala, presented by Nunn’s Home Medical Equipment, is Rome Hospital Foundation’s largest fundraising event annually.
This year the black-tie gala saluted Dr. Anjay Goel as Physician of the Year.
Hospital President David Lundquist praised Dr. Goel’s commitment to the hospital and compassionate patient care. Dr. Goel is a longtime and highly regarded doctor with over 29 years of experience in gastroenterology. He joined the medical staff at Rome Memorial Hospital in July 1988.
He is the recipient of numerous honors and was cited for his contributions not only to the hospital but the community, said Brian Miller, president of the Rome Hospital Foundation.
Proceeds from the gala and all foundation events support the mission of Rome Memorial in providing the best care possible to the community.
