Charlton family portrait unveiled
Southcoast Hospitals last week unveiled a portrait of the family of Earle P. "Chuck" Charlton II, at Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River. The portrait includes Charlton, his wife, Fran, and daughter, Stacey.
"Chuck and his family have continued and expanded the legacy of giving that began with his grandfather, Earle Perry Charlton, more than eight decades ago," said John B. Day, President & CEO of Southcoast Health System. "We thought it was only fitting to honor that legacy with a portrait of this latest generation of the Charlton family."
The Charlton legacy of giving, whose health interests previously focused on Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, broadened in 2006 with a $2 million gift to St. Luke's Hospital, Southcoast's New Bedford site, to help fund the recently completed $33 million expansion and renovation project. The gift was the largest ever received by St. Luke's.
