The Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) Foundation welcomed former Ohio State All-American and NFL All-Pro linebacker Chris Spielman (center) as the featured speaker for its 9th annual Hearts and Stars Gala, which was held on March 23 at The Vineyards at Pine Lake in Columbiana. All proceeds raised through this year’s sold-out event will be used locally to support world-class cancer care at SRMC. Pictured with Spielman are (from left) Amy Reed, SRMC Director of Development, and Dr. Anita Hackstedde, SRMC President/CEO. The SRMC Foundation raises funds to support patient services and programs at SRMC, with 100 percent of all proceeds used to benefit area patients.
