In recognition of the 50th Wedding Anniversary of their parents – Frank and Glady Voisin – the Voisin children made a major gift to St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation to help build the new Intensive Care/Coronary Care Unit.
The naming of this unit recognizes the service, commitment and major financial support of the Voisin family to St. Mary’s General Hospital.
