Patient’s family donates $28K to NOMC physical therapy unit

Published: Monday, April 15, 2013 at 02:10 PM.

NOMC assistant Chief Operating Officer Heath Evans said the family's benevolence was touching.

"This is a reminder that we don't treat patients — we treat people," he said.

When Marguerite Wallace McClure Averett had a heart attack in May 2012, Andrews staffers took turns visiting her at the main hospital.

"When she passed, we closed the office down to go to the funeral," Hammonds said.

Andrews Institute Director of Development Brett Aldridge thanked the family for their generosity "and the impact it will have on the people that come through those doors."

"Consider it her generosity," John Averett Sr. said, gesturing to a new memorial plaque on the wall.

"All I do is sign the checks."
