  • In Memory of Ronald Read

    Ronald Read was a regular customer at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital's Coffee Shop for many years. He especially enjoyed his daily breakfast, which included a cup of coffee and an English muffin with peanut butter. Ron was a quiet man who chose to live a simple lifestyle despite the fact that he had made millions investing in the stock market – a passion of his. Ron believed in the hospital and all it offers the community and, as a result, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital was one of the very lucky recipients of Ron’s fortune. Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will always remember and be grateful to Ron for his incredible generosity.
