St. Claire HealthCare Names Crosley-Patrick House

St. Claire HealthCare Names Crosley-Patrick House

To recognize the charitable commitment of generous donors, the St. Claire HealthCare Foundation has announced the naming of the Crosley-Patrick House. The property, located near SCH’s main campus, was recently acquired from the family of the late Creed and Helen Patrick from Patrick’s children.

Richard Crosley Patrick and Kay Patrick McAllister, and her husband Jack, have contributed a sizable portion of the value of their parent’s former residence. The Crosley and Patrick families have lived in Morehead for several generations. Helen Crosley Patrick was born in Morehead and spent her entire life here. Creed Patrick arrived in Morehead as a child. They both attended and graduated from Breckinridge Training School.

Helen spent many years as a St. Claire Auxiliary volunteer, probably one of the first “pink ladies” to serve. Creed served many years as a member of the Morehead Fire Department, an all-volunteer crew. He was also instrumental in establishing the Morehead Airport.

They lived on Allen Avenue for several decades, adjacent to St. Claire. They were also very close personal friends with Dr. Louise Caudill, for whom St. Claire is named.

“The St. Claire HealthCare Foundation is honored that the McAllisters and Mr. Patrick have chosen to be so generous,” said Mindy Highley, SCH Executive Director, Community Engagement & Philanthropy. “The gift is made more meaningful by the fact that it’s the former home of their parents and holds many strong family memories.”
