Russell and Joan Bennett

Whether sitting in a chair with his wife, Joan, or thumbing through scrapbooks filled with photos of treasured memories, or serving as chair of the Board of Trustees for Richmond Memorial Hospital, Russell Bennett has always been quick to turn the page to help push through much-needed health care initiatives.

Together, he and Joan have supported the establishment of a vast collection of hospital services for the people of Richmond County – including wound care, pulmonary rehab, a pain clinic, stereotactic breast biopsy, a sleep lab, a CT scanner, a full-time MRI, an enlarged and renovated Emergency Department, and a full-service Center for Health & Fitness.

Thanks to the generous efforts of members of our community like the Bennetts, our future generations should have plenty of fond memories to savor as well.

“We’ve enjoyed gathering quite a collection of family mementos over the years, but equally important to us is the legacy we leave through our commitment to ‘give back’ to our community.”
