April 11, 2012


Springhill Medical Center is proud to announce that our catering team took 1st Place Honors, “Best Gumbo,” in the USA College of Medicine's Fourth Annual Gumbo - Chili Showdown.

The Gumbo Chili Showdown benefits the Regan Robinson Young Scholarship Fund. This year’s event was held in March at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

There were a total of 48 teams that participated, and SMC’s team, “The Gumbo Assassins,” took out all of the competition. SMC’s Executive Chef Mike Byears said, “It really means a lot to the entire Dietary Department and is a great motivation for us all. Team Captain, Ellen Jones and fellow teammates Sam Spencer and Josh Lee cooked their hearts out and for their effort and took home the Gold.”
