“We care about our local community and strive to help make a positive impact by actively being involved in the communities we serve,” said Stephen White, president/CEO of Westerly Community Credit Union. “We are very excited for the opportunity to support the Westerly Hospital Foundation’s campaign to provide the latest technology and improve the patient experience.”
