Posted: Friday, March 16, 2018

Todd Sider, MD, will be honored at the seventh Parkview Huntington Community Gala on the evening of Saturday, April 7, at the PAL Event Center in Huntington. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Sider, of Parkview Physicians Group (PPG) – General Surgery, will receive the Dr. R.B. Peare and Dr. John B. Kay Award for Excellence in Healthcare. The award is named for two Huntington physicians who were instrumental in advancing health services locally and in establishing Parkview Huntington Hospital at its Stults Road location. The presentation will be the centerpiece of the gala evening.

The award recognizes Sider’s significant and lasting contributions to the advancement of healthcare in Huntington County and the surrounding area as a general surgeon practicing in northeast Indiana for the past 14 years. He joins physicians J. David Carnes, MD, PPG, Family Medicine; Duane Hougendobler, MD, PPG, Pediatrics; and Anil V. Rao, MD, PPG, OB/GYN along with nurses Marilyn Rittenhouse, Ruth Wall and Mary Wilson as Peare-Kay Award recipients. He was chosen for the award from among nominees reviewed by a panel of hospital and community representatives.

The event will be held at the PAL Event Center, 2099 Riverside Drive. Gourmet hors d’oeuvres and dessert and fine beverages will be available during the evening. “Red-carpet” photos and whimsical “photo booth” opportunities will add to the evening’s festivities. Complimentary valet parking is provided.

Proceeds from the gala will become part of the Remembering Holly fund to benefit the Parkview Huntington Hospital Rehabilitation and Wellness Center expansion and wound clinic project now underway at the hospital. The center will be named for the late Holly D. Sale, the hospital’s long-time director of Rehabilitation and Wellness.

The evening is co-sponsored by the boards of directors of Parkview Huntington Hospital and the Parkview Huntington Foundation.

Reservations are $75 per person and will be accepted until March 30. More information is available from the Parkview Huntington Foundation office at (260) 355-3316 or (260) 355-3216.
