Carr Family Legacy
Investing in Nursing Excellence
"There are no roads back, only other roads forward."
Many remember Thomas Carr voicing that sentiment during his tenure as president of Bay Path College. It was a guiding principle of his life - one that reflected the spirit in which he had approached his future after a car accident left him a paraplegic at the age of 38, and even after he became legally blind years later.
Tom Carr's credo takes on new meaning in the context of his philanthropic legacy.
Tom and his wife, Mollie Jean, paved the road forward by including a generous gift to Baystate Health in their will, which was received following Mollie Jean's passing in 2007.
Mollie Jean and Tom Carr believed in education. They also knew - better than many - the value of high-quality healthcare. Their estate plans blended their two great passions - establishing a fund to enhance nurse-patient relationships and support nursing education.
As a 58-year honorary trustee of Baystate Medical Center, Tom Carr is part of the history of Baystate Health. Through the gift in their will, he and Mollie Jean are part of Baystate Health's future - continuing to serve the community they called home, for generations to come.
