Date:9/18/2007

TRENTON, Mich., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oakwood Southshore Medical Center (OSMC) is one step closer to fulfilling its "Southshore Promise," thanks to a generous gift from Anthony J. Pellegrino. Pellegrino donated $1 million recently to support the downriver hospital.

"The Southshore Promise is really our pledge to the downriver community," said Edith Hughes, division president, Oakwood Southshore Medical Center.
