More than 200 physicians and supporters of Verdugo Hills Hospital came together at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale on Saturday, October 21, with the intention of having a good time and raising money for a good cause. The Main Event, organized by the Women's Council of Verdugo Hills Hospital Foundation, is the largest annual fund-raiser for Verdugo Hills Hospital and the aim of this year's festivities was to raise money for the hospital's new $1.8 million ACCESS system. ACCESS is a high-tech digital record and image tracking system, which enables physicians and staff to view X-ray pictures online and reduces waiting times for patients.

Charles Mason could be considered a self-made man. When he was 10, his mother died of heart failure and his father had already left the family, leaving Mason and his two older sisters orphaned in Noblesville, Ind., a town of 9,000 people. Their neighbor, Myrtle Cosgrove, took the three children in for four years. She had lost her husband six months prior. ?A lot of friends and neighbors came and helped me,? Mason said. That experience colored the way Mason lived, he said, proving to him that it is better to give than to receive.

Since 1972, Verdugo Hills Hospital has been committed to its mission of “providing personalized and cost effective high quality services that meet the community’s needs for healthcare.” Now the 158-bed hospital is celebrating its 35th anniversary. Prior to distinguishing itself as the local hospital of the foothills, it was known as Behrens Memorial Hospital which was established in 1947. In the late ’60s, when a bigger facility was needed, it was decided that the hospital would relocate to its current hilltop location onto land donated by the Greene family.
