Community Corporations Each Donate $25,000 to Brazosport Health Foundation
In the midst of the largest Capital Campaigns in the history of Brazosport Health Foundation, corporations across the community donate several thousand dollars to help the advancement of Brazosport Regional Health System.
The $5 million Cornerstone of Caring Capital Campaign started in August 2013 to assist with the $15.25 million campus upgrade for the Health System, including the Patient Tower and the Lowrey Emergency Services Pavilion. The Capital Campaign Committee has raised $3 million and is working to raise the remaining $2 million before the middle of 2015.
Recently, Brazosport Health Foundation was the recipient of a $25,000 donation from First State Bank of Clute, $25,000 gift from Offshore Oil, and a $25,000 contribution from Shintech.
“First State Bank in Clute, Texas is proud to help fund the improvements of Brazosport Regional Health System,” said Robert Perryman, President and CEO of First State Bank. First State Bank has been a long time supporter of the hospital. Brazosport Regional is the hospital in Brazosport that serves our community’s health needs. It is important that we show our support to our local hospital for the important service it provides the residents of our area.”
Stacy Stanley from Offshore Oil reflects, “The Muchowich family has been in business in the Brazosport area for over eighty years. Our family has utilized the services offered by our local hospital from the beginning of life to the end of life and everything in between. When I was approached earlier this year about contributing to the capital campaign for the construction of the new Emergency Services Pavilion it was a very easy decision. You can't put a price on the availability of state of the art emergency room care.”
“We are proud to have support from these corporations to help with the advancement of local healthcare,” said Judith Pepper, Executive Director of Brazosport Health Foundation. “We thank them for their continued contributions to the health of our community.”
Brazosport Health Foundation is seeking donations from other corporate industry partners and local community members to help raise the remaining $2,000,000 of the capital campaign. As a non-profit organization, donor support helps Brazosport Regional invest in advanced technology, equipment and facilities to provide each patient with excellent and compassionate care.
