Community Members and Loring Healthcare Foundation to Host Dr. Rodney H. Miller Memorial Celebration

Dr. Rodney H. Miller

A date has been set for a Memorial Celebration for Dr. Rodney M. Miller in Sac City. The public is invited November 9th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm to help celebrate the life of Dr. Miller. The event will be at the Baily Dixon Community/West Conference Room at Loring Hospital. A wine and cheese come and go will begin at 2:00 pm with a dedication at 2:30.

Community members have been planning a memorial celebration for Dr. Rodney Miller since learning of his passing earlier this year. Although Dr. Miller lived in Boise, Idaho the last several years, they wanted to honor his nearly 40 years of practicing medicine in Sac City. With memorial funds a marble sculptured wall hanging of Dr. Miller will be presented to Loring Hospital at 2:30, along with a dedication ceremony.

Dr. Rodney H. Miller passed away January 25, 2018 in Boise, ID. He practiced for nearly 40 years in Sac City at the Clinic and Hospital. From delivering over 1500 babies, performing thousands of surgeries, and even making house calls, Dr. Miller is being remembered for the devoted care he gave each patient. He was the first doctor at Loring Hospital to perform a laparoscopic surgery in 1992.

Loring Hospital past and present nurses and staff remember Dr. Miller as a kind person with a “jokester” attitude. He kind-heartedly teased and joked with his nurses, making each of them feel special. He was passionate about medicine, health and fitness, and loved living life to the fullest with his added sense of humor.

With community support and in conjunction with his family, the Loring Healthcare Foundation worked together to continue Dr. Miller’s legacy with a memorial. Contributions to Dr. Miller’s Memorial can still be sent to the Loring Healthcare Foundation, 211 Highland Avenue, Sac City, Iowa 50583 or brought to the Memorial Celebration.
