Frances Anne Fortner died on May 17, 2018, at age 18. With her passion for the arts and her compassion for others, she had brightened the lives of everyone who knew her. On Tuesday, the Medical Center dedicated its Healing Arts Program to the daughter of UMMC’s Tom Fortner and artist Laurilyn Fortner.
Overseen by the Office of Patient Experience, each offering in this series of creative and performing arts events will be staged periodically as an interlude of emotional and cultural fulfillment to benefit patients, families, caregivers, visitors and employees. It will be known as “Franny’s Hour.”
