Ninth Annual Jewel Ball honors Bob Rush
The HRRMC Foundation honored Salida attorney Bob Rush at its ninth annual Jewel Ball on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, at the Chaffee County Fairgrounds. Rush was recognized and formally inducted into the HRRMC Hall of Fame at the Foundation's annual fundraising gala.
The hospital established its Hall of Fame in 2012 to honor individuals who have made an enduring commitment to quality health care in the Upper Arkansas Valley. The hospital is located on Rush Drive, which was named in Bob Rush's honor.
A Salida native and attorney, Rush was appointed to the Salida Hospital District Board of Directors in Nov. 1992 to fill the unexpired term of another member. He was elected to his first four-year term in 1994 and re-elected for two additional four-year terms. As chairman of the board, Rush oversaw the decision to build the new hospital and guided the process through site selection and early design decisions. Rush also worked as attorney for the hospital district for several years.
The HRRMC Foundation provides the hospital with financial support to facilitate innovative programs and provide state-of-the-art health care services to the Salida Hospital District.
