CENTRAL TEXAS MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION
GALA HONORS NURSES WITH 25 YEARS OF SERVICE
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS – The Central Texas Medical Center Foundation’s 24th annual Stars of Texas Gala raised $180,000 for the hospital’s growing orthopedics program. Platinum sponsors were San Marcos Vista Properties, Ltd. and John and Chloe Navarrette.
This year’s gala paid tribute to CTMC nurses who have served the hospital for more than 25 years. The 14 women were commended for their compassionate commitment to healthcare, often serving several generations of patients.
Guests learned about the progress made from the 2016 CTMC Gala fundraising, which focused on supporting cardiac services. Those funds provided for the new Impella device, known as the world’s smallest heart pump. The new technology has already proved invaluable in CTMC’s Ingram Heart Center. The Center was established by Bruce and Gloria Ingram in 2015.
“It was a special night to celebrate the donors who are helping our hospital thrive and to honor the nurses who are truly the heartbeat of CTMC’s healthcare ministry,” noted Anthony Stahl, CEO and President of CTMC. “San Marcos is blessed with generous people who play a large role in the direction our community is taking. We appreciate their leadership and friendship.”
Plans are already underway for the Foundation’s 25th ‘Stars of Texas’ Gala which is set for Sunday, October 7, 2018.
