Remembering Rose

A year before, NorthBay Healthcare employee Rose Kennedy, senior director of revenue cycle management, led the charge to provide new shoes for every child in her adopted classroom at Fairview Elementary School as part of NorthBay’s Adopt-A-School program.

She had heard from a teacher that shoes were what some of the kids needed most.

A year later, on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, a team from NorthBay Healthcare’s Finance Department visited Fairview Elementary School to keep the good work and the memory of Rose Kennedy alive – by distributing shoes to 22 students.

Rose’s husband, Michael, attended the event, and said Rose, who lost her battle with cancer in February 2013, would have been very pleased.

So were the children, and the staff.
