The LeFrois family received the award at a ceremony at the Monroe Golf Club on Dec. 14. 

The Heritage Award is the highest honor given by the Highland Hospital Foundation for philanthropic contributions. It honors people or organizations that play a significant role at Highland Hospital and in the community through their time, talent and philanthropic support. 

The LeFrois family has a long history of supporting and choosing Highland Hospital for their care. From Rich’s father, Russell, who lived to be 92 and his wife who was treated for breast cancer, to the birth of all their grandchildren, the LeFrois family has always trusted Highland’s providers and staff with the care of their loved ones. 

Over the years, the family has stepped up to help Highland in countless ways, including chairing the Highland Gala in 2019. Rich LeFrois, CEO of LeFrois Builders and Developers, also served as Board chairman for the hospital that year. The family has also made generous financial contributions which have had a direct positive impact on the hospital’s new patient tower and a variety of other modernization projects. 

“Highland relies on the generosity of our donors and the devotion of our volunteers and board members to ensure that our community has the best possible health care,” said Steve Goldstein, president and CEO of Highland Hospital. “The LeFrois family’s support and dedication to Highland are key reasons for our continued success.”
