Most of all, I’ve seen the hospital become one of our valley’s most active and enthusiastic corporate citizens. Any time our community gathers to celebrate, commemorate, or work toward a common goal, RRH is there, giving back to our families and friends. In a nutshell, Ridgecrest Regional Hospital just helps make the Indian Wells Valley a better place to live – for all of us. Giving to the RRH Development Foundation lets me actively participate in that tradition of giving back – to proudly support our hospital’s and our valley’s future. There’s no better investment than that."
