Physician Room Dedication Honors a Beloved Friend

April 2012

On Saturday, April 14, family, friends and donors gathered at the Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Pediatric Unit in Bethlehem to dedicate a physician exam room in tribute to the late Ralph DeCristoforo. Ralph, fiance to Sally Gammon, Good Shepherd's president and CEO, loved children and was remembered at  a memorial reception and the room dedication. Funding for the room was made possible through donations to the Ralph B. DeCristoforo Memorial Fund. To date, more than $26,600 has been received in Ralph's memory.

The 16-bed Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Pediatric Unit is the only one of its kind in the Lehigh Valley and has gained a national reputation for its clinical expertise, compassion and patient outcomes since opening in July 2010. Read more about our pediatric unit.
