Walter and Betty Reid

Whether coming up with innovative ideas in the hard candy industry as CEO of Charms Candy Company in the 1960s – or making a hard and fast commitment to help bring innovative health care services to the mid-Carolinas today, Walter Reid will be thought of as a true leader in many ways. Fifty years ago he was the first to put chewing gum at the heart of a lollipop. Thirty-four years ago he joined Hal Stevens as one of the first Scroll Society members on their quest to ensure the financial security of our health system. Most recently, he is the first in line to spearhead the funding of a new state-of-the-art Heart Hospital. Thanks to the generous contributions of many individuals like Walter and Betty Reid, FirstHealth will continue to be thought of as a true leader in the field of medicine.
