ALEXANDRIA BAY River Hospital, 4 Fuller St., recently announced the dedication of its emergency department in honor of Mary H. Macsherry.
That department will now be known as the Mary Macsherry Emergency Department of River Hospital. After she died in December, the Macsherry family announced it would give a total of $4 million to local organizations, including River Hospital, in her memory.
Mrs. Macsherry, along with her family, had been supporters of the critical-access hospital for years.
Hospital Board Chairman Joseph Russell said the hospital is extremely grateful for the gift given in memory of Mary, according to a news release.
