GEORGETOWN, Del.- La Red Health Center has renamed its Women’s Health Program in Georgetown to honor the memory of Sister Rosa Alvarez, one of its founders.

Sister Rosa Alvarez was a long-time supporter of La Red's Women’s Health Program. She transported thousands of women and their children to visit LRHC’s Women’s Health Care Providers.

"SHE MADE SURE THAT A LOT OF WOMEN RECEIVED PRENATAL CARE THAT OTHERWISE WITHOUT HER ASSISTANCE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET IT," said Dr. Fabricio Alarcon, who worked with Sister Rosa at La Red.

“Sister Rosa Alvarez was a tireless champion for women in need of prenatal care and was a constant presence in our health centers," La Red Health Center CEO Brian Olson in a statement. "Through her efforts many underserved women and children in our community were able to get the health care services they needed."

Olson further stated that naming LRHC’s Women’s Health Program in Georgetown after Sister Rosa "is just our way of saying we will never forget her and the positive impact she had on the community and on each of us at La Red."
