CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation 2019 Annual Report - Page 5

Thank You From The Foundation As I reviewed the names of all the donors listed in this Annual Report, my heart filled with gratitude. The Annual Report gives us an opportunity to thank the individual donors, foundations and corporations who have committed to improving the health care of the South Texas region. In 2014, our Board of Directors and CHRISTUS Health identified a need to transform healthcare delivery and improve access to care for the residents of the Coastal Bend. Along the way, we called on long-time donors and we reached out to new members of our community. So many had a “Spohn story” to share with us. We have been privileged to give tours of both the new North Tower at Spohn – Shoreline and of the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center to people who had never before had a reason to set foot in our facilities. During this campaign, old friendships have deepened and new friendships forged, all for the sake of Spohn being able to provide the best possible medical treatment right here in Corpus Christi. In 2019, you, our donors, successfully reached our campaign goal. Every time you drive down Shoreline Boulevard, you see the fruition of your donations. Each gift towards the campaign has made a tremendous impact on this community. This report celebrates the culmination of the most eventful four years I have enjoyed as the Vice President for Philanthropy for the CHRISTUS Spohn Health System Foundation. I hope you enjoy reading it and your names, knowing you and everyone listed built this new tower for all of us to have great healthcare right here at home.
