A new oil painting of Patricia C. Adams, MD, now hangs in the main lobby at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital to honor Dr. Adams's service as a beloved pediatrician and former President of the Wentworth-Douglass Medical Staff. The portrait was painted by local artist Stan Moeller and was commissioned by the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital & Health Foundation as part of a major endowment set up by Dr. Adams's husband Robert Adams. The endowment will fund Children's Care Projects at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
Dr. Adams became the victim of Alzheimer's disease twenty years ago and is currently living at a nursing home where her devoted husband visits her daily and assists with her care. Proceeds from the endowment, this year, will be used to support therapeutic horseback riding programs for children with disabilities. More information on the Patricia C. Adams, MD Endowment Fund for Children's Care is available on the Foundation's website.
