Married for more than 70 years, the late Theodore “Ted” Petczo and Susanna “Sue” (DeCola) Petczo together demonstrated their commitment to giving back to the community and Lahey Hospital & Medical Center with a planned gift to the hospital’s Greatest Needs Fund.
For Dr. Laura Sowerby, a generous, anonymous gift made in her honor was incredibly humbling. “Treating patients is very rewarding for me,” says Sowerby. “It is our mission at Lahey to provide the highest level of care. Through his gift, the patient is enabling us to grow in that mission, and I couldn’t be more grateful,” she says.
Everyone who has experienced life-saving care at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is grateful for our caregivers’ expertise, compassion and skill. One second-generation Lahey patient, Windle (Win) Priem, and his wife Susan came to express their gratitude to physicians through philanthropy beginning with small gifts.
