MODESTO, Calif. – May 24, 2018 –The Porges family, owners of the successful chain of Prime Shine Car Wash locations in the Central Valley, was recently honored during a reception acknowledging their $100,000 donation to Memorial Hospital Foundation for the Sutter Health Heart & Vascular Institute at Memorial Medical Center.
The hall that leads to the Heart and Vascular Institute on the 3rd floor of MMC’s North Tower is now known as the “Porges Family Pathway to Your Good Health.”
“Prime Shine has been a part of the Central Valley for over twenty-seven years, and we couldn’t be more proud that we have the ability to donate to this institute,” said Evan Porges, Prime Shine Car Wash president. “It will provide our community vital heart care, not just today, but for generations to come.”
The institute allows MMC to place a renewed emphasis, not only on providing new treatments for heart disease, but also new ways to prevent this devastating illness — the number one killer in America. Heart disease can strike anyone at any time, without regard for age, ethnicity or gender. Half of men and two-thirds of women who die suddenly of coronary artery disease have had no symptoms and no known risk factors.
