RMH officials announced Sunday that the grounds for the new RMH hospital will be named in honor of recently retired President and CEO Carter Melton Jr. and his wife, Connie Graham Melton.
The announcement was made during a reception to honor Carter for 34 years of service to RMH and the greater healthcare community. Melton retired March 31.
RMH Board Chair Barbara Stoltzfus noted, "Naming the grounds for Carter and Connie is a fitting tribute to their love of the land and many years of involvement with local 4-H, gardening and agriculture. The natural beauty will serve as a reminder to their dedication to RMH and the the surrounding community."
The hospital under construction on the 234-acre health campus is slated for completion in mid-2010.
