HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over 200 of MemorialCare's top leaders will participate in a refurbish of a Santa Ana home in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. The home will be renovated to accommodate the family's middle daughter, who lives with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Halls will be widened, ramps will be made and the home will be given a "makeover" with upgrades throughout.
The MemorialCare Academy will lead this project, celebrating its tenth anniversary of graduating 200 of healthcare's best and brightest leaders! "We couldn't think of a more meaningful, better way to celebrate our decade of leadership, to strengthen our legacy and give back to our community in this special way," said Tammie McMann Brailsford, Executive Vice President & COO of MemorialCare. Mrs. Brailsford is also Dean of the MemorialCare Academy.
Academy members will donate their time to participate in this refurbish for the Usman family of five, currently living in an apartment in Garden Grove.
