A Place of Miracles

The Scully-Welsh Cancer Center at the Indian River Medical Center is indeed miraculous. It was built on faith – not religious faith, per se, but faith in the future of health and healing in Vero Beach. It offers the best of the present: state-of-the-art technology; an affiliation with Duke Cancer Institute; the capacity for life-changing clinical trials; and a commitment to each patient’s physical, emotional and spiritual comfort. It was made possible by multiple donors, including Bill and Marlynn Scully and Pat and Carol Welsh. The two couples donated $12 million each, one half of the estimated $48 million capital campaign.

It Takes a Village

Jay McLaughlin knows something about celebrity. The last time he was featured in a Vero Beach Magazine article in March 2010, we called him a “fashion king.” At the time, the New York-based fashion designer and high-end retail mogul was the “new” news in town thanks to his purchase and renovation of a Vero Beach home and the opening of J. McLaughlin, a women’s clothing store on Ocean Drive.
