Entertainer Ben Vereen Speaks at Memorial in Chattanooga

Emmy and Tony Award winner Ben Vereen recently spoke at the Retirement Living Expo at Memorial Hospital, Chattanooga, Tenn. Vereen recalled his time in an intensive care unit after suffering a stroke and an automobile accident and what he learned from his recovery. “Chattanooga, you are blessed to have a facility like Memorial that has prayer and faith as the seed of its foundation,” he said. “When you go to Memorial, they are already praying, and that changes the spirit of the hospital.”
