Rosary Hall donor establishes endowment to help support uninsured and under-insured patients

Gary Storch freely admits that he would not be alive today if it wasn’t for Rosary Hall at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. He started drinking at the age of 15 and came to Rosary Hall in the late 1970s at the age of 18. He was without health insurance and without money to pay for much-needed alcohol addiction treatment—and without hope. More than 40 years later, he wanted to show his gratitude by donating half of his life savings to establish the Gary and Patty Storch Endowment at Rosary Hall to support uninsured and under-insured patients to help them get treatment.
