CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation 2019 Annual Report - Page 38

YOUR GUIDE TO GIVING Why is Your Support Important From its humble beginnings in 1905 as Spohn Sanitarium on Corpus Christi’s North Beach, CHRISTUS Spohn Health System has emerged as the healthcare leader in South Texas. Today, our physicians, nurses, and specialists continue the legacy established by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and Dr. Arthur E. Spohn by providing the most advanced, compassionate care for our entire community. While healthcare has changed during our more than a century of serving the Coastal Bend, our commitment to extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ remains resolute to the heart of our mission in our 12-county service area. The CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation relies upon the support of our generous benefactors to help us continue to meet the expectations of individuals who look to us for the best in medical care for themselves and their families.
