John Colontrelle - Life-Saving Heart Surgery
John Colontrelle felt a "pop" in his chest during his regular workout one morning. He thought that he had pulled a muscle. He hadn't. What John experienced was an aortic dissection, a very serious and rare condition, especially for a healthy, active 31-year-old. Fortunately, John came to Indian River Medical Center "just to have it checked out-to be safe." That visit saved his life. John's story>

IRMC Receives $24-Million Transformational Gifts for Cancer Care Excellence
Bill and Marlynn Scully and Pat and Carol Welsh, the donors who have committed these funds so generously, have been close personal friends and enthusiastic supporters of the medical center for years. With these landmark gifts, Indian River Medical Center proudly establishes the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center, an affiliate of Duke Medicine.
The Scullys shared that their family has been touched multiple times by cancer, most recently with the loss of
Mr. Scully's brother John in September 2012. As they learned about the plan for cancer care at IRMC, they considered the urgency of getting this new program up and running as quickly as possible. Their decision to invest $12 million, then matched by Pat and Carol Welsh, allows the timetable for every aspect of the program to be moved dramatically forward. With these gifts the Campaign for Excellence in Cancer Care has exceeded the $30 million mark, the original campaign goal.
When asked why he and his wife made this decision, Pat Welsh said, "Carol and I are pleased to invest in the addition of vital clinical services to meet the healthcare needs of this unique community. We are very happy with the progress that we've seen at IRMC in the past 10 years and glad to contribute when we can make a difference. It is our strong hope that others will join us by investing in IRMC as it continually raises the bar in patient care."
