Legacy Silverton Medical Center receives $50,000 gift from Roth family

April 2019 Posted in Business, Columnists & Opinion, Community

Michael Roth, president of Roth’s Fresh Markets, recently presented a transformational gift of $50,000 to the Silverton Health Foundation board of trustees to support the Campus Enhancement Project at Legacy Silverton Medical Center.

“The Roth Family’s incredible generosity will help us to continue to grow the comprehensive care our hospital provides the community,” said Sarah Brewer, president of Legacy Silverton.

“Silverton is a special place,” Roth said. “It’s such an asset when a town has its own hospital.”

Roth is the son of the late Orville N. Roth, who co-founded the chain of grocery stores in Silverton in 1962.

“My family and I put our Orville hats on and it only took us a second to know this phenomenal project is something he would want to be involved with; we’re honored to help our community hospital reach an even higher level,” Roth said.

Over 50 years ago, when Orville Roth bought his first store, he adopted Silverton as his hometown, and the town adopted him.

“Building a better community is something my father always insisted on, and he especially wanted that in his hometown,” Michael Roth said.

This gift from the Roth family will support upgrades to Legacy Silverton’s patient care areas, as well as emergency and imaging services.

Legacy Silverton offers a comprehensive mix of services, many not typically available in a small, rural hospital. The hospital is part of Legacy Health, the largest local, nonprofit health care system in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

The drive for the Campus Enhancement Project at is being coordinated by Legacy Health foundation’s Office of Philanthropy. For information call
