Highland Hospital Foundation Awards the LeFrois Family with the Heritage Award

The Highland Hospital Foundation announces that the LeFrois family is the recipient of the 2022 Heritage Award. The LeFrois family, who have gone above and beyond to support Highland Hospital in multiple capacities over the years, received the award at a ceremony at the Monroe Golf Club on Wednesday, December 14.

The Heritage Award is the highest honor given by the Highland Hospital Foundation for philanthropic contributions. It honors people or organizations that play a significant role at Highland Hospital and in our community through their time, talent, and philanthropic support.

 The LeFrois family has a long history of supporting and choosing Highland Hospital for their care. From Rich’s father Russell who lived to be 92 and his wife who was treated for breast cancer, to the birth of all of their grandchildren, the LeFrois family has always trusted Highland’s providers and staff with the care of their loved ones.

Over the years, the family has stepped up to help Highland in countless ways, including chairing the Highland Gala in 2019. Rich LeFrois, CEO of LeFrois Builders and Developers also served as Board Chairman for the hospital that same year. The family has also made generous financial contributions which have had a direct positive impact on the hospital’s new patient tower and a variety of other modernization projects.

“Highland relies on the generosity of our donors and the devotion of our volunteers and board members to ensure that our community has the best possible health care,” said Steve Goldstein, President and CEO of Highland Hospital. “The LeFrois family’s support and dedication to Highland are key reasons for our continued success.”

Past recipients of The Heritage Award include Mark Eidlin, Dr. Robert McCann, Dr. David Sischy, and the Honorable Thomas & Betty Richards.
