Celebrating Community, Compassion and Champions of Coastal Bend Health Care

THANK YOU, FRIENDS AND BENEFACTORS We are proud to share personal stories with you about CHRISTUS Spohn Health System’s commitment to the Coastal Bend. The accounts you will read in these pages are as unique as each of these South Texans, who are passionate about CHRISTUS Spohn’s service in the community they call home. Our benefactors have their own reasons for supporting us and each story reinforces what it means to be a champion of CHRISTUS Spohn. Their giving spirit is directed toward honoring exceptional care given to a loved one, supporting specific hospital departments and programs, and helping to ensure access to the most modernized health care. As CHRISTUS Spohn looks toward a dynamic and thriving future for South Texas, its focus will remain on being a leader in innovation, particularly in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments that are prevalent in our community. That’s why we’re moving forward on Our PATH — People & Actions Transforming Healthcare — CHRISTUS Spohn’s greatest investment in our community. Our $325 million master plan includes constructing advanced facilities with the most sophisticated technology today, equipping the gifted physicians of tomorrow through enriched learning programs and delivering the best in patient care for generations.

No matter the motivation to give, each story has one thing in common: 100% of gifts remain right here in the Coastal Bend for CHRISTUS Spohn’s devoted ministry of care. We celebrated our 110th anniversary in 2015, honoring the monumental efforts of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Dr. Arthur E. Spohn and thousands of other doctors and nurses who helped us continue our healing legacy. And while health care has changed during our time serving the Coastal Bend, our promise of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ remains resolute to the heart of our mission. Thank you, friends, for your endurNancy Beauchamp, Chairwoman, CHRISTUS Spohn Health System Foundation Board of Directors

One cornerstone of our monumental gift is construction of the comprehensive Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center on our Memorial campus. The center will be a community asset unlike any other, providing a medical home base of care for the Coastal Bend, including for the most vulnerable.

ing support of CHRISTUS Spohn and our continuum of care. We are proud to serve each and every one of you, and we look forward to extending the healing legacy of our predecessors. We hope you enjoy reading our 2015 Report on Giving and look forward to your continued support. The other cornerstone is the transformation of the Shoreline campus, including a new state-of-the-art Level II Trauma Center — the only one in South Texas. Shoreline will serve as the tertiary referral center for the entire Coastal Bend, offering access to the highest level of treatment and prevention for heart disease, stroke and other conditions that are prevalent in our community. These projects will provide accessible, coordinated care for one and all. It is an honor to serve on the CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation Board of Directors, and on behalf of the Board, I offer my deepest gratitude for your kind support.

mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ so that all may experience God’s healing presence and love. Gifts to the Foundation are as individual as the patients and families we serve, who often want to honor a caregiver,

or directly support a project or area of service. The Foundation’s 2015 Report on Giving is our way of highlighting those who have provided a lasting legacy of support for generations to come.

People & Actions Transforming Healthcare rests right at the heart of CHRISTUS Spohn’s mission, and goes hand in hand with the values of American Bank, says Jones. “The philosophy we’ve had at American Bank is that we’re deeply embedded in this community and have been for a long time,” says Jones. “We believe that living here and working here, we need to be involved in the community, and that we need to be good corporate citizens. And that means helping to make Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend a better place. That’s a top requirement for us.” That support from American Bank has taken many forms, including being the an-

nual presenting sponsor of the CHRISTUS Spohn Lyceum, helping to bring in exceptional speakers who are able to provide commentary and insight on some of the most essential issues of our time. Jones points to change across South Texas when noting ongoing industrial and societal developments, but one thing remains constant, he says. “CHRISTUS Spohn will continue to be here to deliver health care services to our community regardless of whether patients are able to pay for them or not,” says Jones. “It’s important to be able to provide the best in quality health care to a growing community and I’m proud to be associated with CHRISTUS Spohn.”




CHRISTUS Spohn’s Lyceum has a rich tradition, beginning in 1989 with Henry Kissinger, the 56th Secretary of State. Lyceum guests enjoy an exquisite dinner and hear presentations from some of our era’s most intriguing people. The 2016 CHRISTUS Spohn Lyceum featured Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian David McCullough and helped to raise funds for the new Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center.

Margaret Jataine smiles when she thinks about the business her father started. Corpus Christi Produce Company, Inc. started off humbly in 1946, with one goal in mind: provide the best fruits and vegetables to South Texas. However, there was just one problem: it meant lots of travel. “My father would go around and take orders locally, drive to San Antonio, bring the produce back and deliver it all,” says Jataine. “As the years went by, his business got bigger and he expanded, but he would always take me with him, and


some of my earliest memories are of going to San Antonio or to the Valley every night. I’d drink all the Cokes and eat all the candy, and back then they had ‘funny books,’ and I’d have a stack of those.” A growing community’s need for quality produce continued to expand, and the business has remained a Coastal Bend staple, serving Corpus Christi, Kingsville, Alice and a host of other towns. Jataine inherited the business from her father after his passing. She also received his work ethic and sense of community pride, focusing on giving back to South Texas. “It’s important to take care of others in the community when you’re in a position to

help,” says Jataine. While health care has undergone obvious changes during the past century of its ministry CHRISTUS Spohn Health System remains a community asset, says Jataine, noting that her children and grandchildren all were born at CHRISTUS Spohn. It was only natural to help give back to a hospital system that has always been there for her family, says Jataine, and her involvement in fundraising events makes her “proud.” “I’ve always enjoyed being a sponsor and being a part of CHRISTUS Spohn events including the Lyceum and Richard King III Grand Classic golf tournament,” says Jataine. “Those events really are gifts

to the community because all those proceeds go back into providing care for South Texas.” Despite obvious differences, Jataine is quick to point out the similarities between her business and CHRISTUS Spohn. “Like we strive to get a 100 on all of our inspections, CHRISTUS Spohn strives to be the best,” says Jataine. “I had a heart test recently at CHRISTUS Spohn, and everything runs so smoothly. The cardiac department is excellent. Everyone there is so nice and it’s a great program. Everyone from the doctors to the administration is excellent. They’re devoted and really care about their jobs, especially when it comes to the patients they serve.”


The charitable golf tournament has supported the healing mission of CHRISTUS Spohn for more than two decades. The event began in 1991 when the late Vernon Medlin, M.D., a longtime radiologist and radiation oncologist with CHRISTUS Spohn, teamed with Doug DeSive, Head Golf Professional at the Country Club, to raise money for the hospital system through his favorite pastime.

Everyone at the Corpus Christi Country Club knows the Rogers family.

And then we thought, ‘Why don’t we just do an event only for women?’ “We’ve had some really great committees full of people who are talented and know how to get things done, so it’s been a wonderful thing. We moved it around to a few different venues since we got so big and finally we ended up at the Expo Center. We’ve had all kinds of vendors through the years and I know that a lot

of people look forward to the event all year. It’s really a good reason to get together and celebrate with people who are making a difference.” Beeville Ladies Night Out has raised more than $250,000 for CHRISTUS Spohn-Beeville, helping fund improvements and advancements to the emergency department, women’s services and a host of other programs that serve the surrounding community. At the end of the day, Lou Adele is most appreciative of living in a tight-knit community where people look out for one another and are willing to lend a hand at the drop of a hat. “I love Beeville and I love South Texas,” says May. “It’s a great place to call home.”

Gerald began Masonry Construction Company, and starting in the 1950s, helped to build some of the most recognizable structures in the Coastal Bend.

his time he spent in the hospital over the years, and he just shared an exceptional camaraderie with everyone at Spohn. “He was officially retired, but his last brick job was at CHRISTUS Spohn-South, and he did it mostly because of the fact that you could consider Spohn a ‘lifesaver’ as far as for our health and livelihood. It meant a lot to him to do that job and it’s something for which he was immensely proud.” As with other members of the Dr. Arthur E. Spohn Society — those benefactors who have included the CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation in their estate plans — the Sutherlands’ generosity helps to continue the legacy of CHRISTUS Spohn, its

mission and ministry. “I know that Gerald would recommend that anyone who had care at CHRISTUS Spohn for any period of time should consider giving back to the ministry of care,” says Alice. “It’s something that was important to our family.” Alice is quick to point out that Gerald built his company from the ground up through determination and plenty of hard work, but he also had help along the way, something that he never forgot. “Gerald always enjoyed giving back to people, and that’s what he was known for in the community,” says Alice. “He would help out in any way he thought would be best. He was just a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.”




Our associate giving program allows associates to suggest, select and fund projects for the benefit of our patients, visitors and our very own CHRISTUS Spohn family.

Another is focused on gaining an important certification. “In 2015 our national organization gave the first CCRP (Certified Cardiac Rehabilitation Professional) national certification test,” says Barb. “I took it and passed it, and then at that point I challenged all of my staff that if they would take it and pass it that we would use Giving From Within funds to pay for the testing. Veronica Garcia took it at the state meeting last year and passed it, and became the first person on our staff to earn the CCRP merit. “The greatest thing that our cardiac rehab staff has gained is continuing education paid for through the funds. We don’t have to worry about not

paying for conferences and other venues that are valuable learning tools.” The CHRISTUS Spohn Cardiac Rehab program offers electrocardiograph-monitored exercise, education, counseling and support for patients and their families to help people who experience a cardiac event or heart disease to recover faster, return to more full and productive lives and reduce the risk and severity of future heart disease. It’s a calling that’s near and dear to Flato’s own heart. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years and it’s my passion,” says Barb. “I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life and I love coming to work every day. What more could you ask for in a job?”


Dr. Salim Surani has many titles, ranging from distinguished researcher and renowned pulmonologist to esteemed associate professor and valued mentor. However, his most fitting designation dovetails perfectly into the valuable mission of CHRISTUS Spohn Health System: health care champion of the Coastal Bend. Surani has spent more than two decades with CHRISTUS Spohn, serving thousands of patients from across South Tex-

as, but his first thoughts of the area were that it would be a nice place to spend a little bit of time. “I originally thought I’d only be in Beeville and Corpus Christi for a year, but my wife and I fell in love with South Texas. We love the community and it has embraced us,” says Surani, Director of Critical Care Services at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Memorial. That sense of community is what Surani says made his family want to make Corpus Christi its home, which is a great thing when talking about the most prevalent medical conditions in the area. Surani’s focus remains on critical care, but he also has a passion for helping the community he serves, specifically children and

the issues they face, including tobacco use, diabetes and obesity, and sleep deprivation. Surani who mentors and trains faculty at the Mayo Clinic, Scott & White and the University of North Texas, in addition to his numerous other callings, recognizes more than most just how quickly health care has changed and continues to change. That’s precisely why he is such a strong advocate for CHRISTUS Spohn’s comprehensive plan, Our PATH Forward — People & Actions Transforming Healthcare. Surani was the first physician to pledge a financial contribution toward Our PATH. “Our PATH Forward will allow CHRISTUS Spohn to

invest in technology and infrastructure, which in turn will help improve education and help improve patient care,” says Surani. “All of our services also are optimum for patient care, especially with the number of specialists who will be on site at the new Shoreline campus.” Surani, who still remembers the blueprints from the original pavilion expansion at Shoreline, has been vital in planning for the future needs of health care in our region. The need is now greater than ever to recruit, train and invite the best and brightest to CHRISTUS Spohn. “If you have a vision and structure for your educational programs, it helps to attract the best physicians,” says Surani.



CHRISTUS SPOHN VOLUNTEERS VITAL TO OUR MISSION Volunteers play an important role in supporting CHRISTUS Spohn Health System. They work at information desks, surgery waiting, emergency departments, dietary departments, spiritual care, radiology, admitting, the nursery, gift shops, education department, and in our nursing units. For more information on being a volunteer, contact Marissa Carrillo, Director of Volunteer Services, at 361-881-3160 or marissa. carrillo@christushealth.org. Karen Bonner (at podium), Vice President for Philanthropy of the CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation, installs new volunteer presidents during the annual volunteer meeting. Presidents, from left, are Cynthia Martinez – Memorial; Norma Burnside – South; Delia Alvarez – Kleberg; Olga Bell – Shoreline; and Imelda Gonzalez – Alice.

“It’s hard to imagine CHRISTUS Spohn's hospitals without our volunteers.”

“They are very much a part of our team,” says Carrillo. “Patients and their families are very comfortable around our volunteers. They offer smiles, the understanding ear, comfort and the healing touch.” Marissa Carrillo, During 2015, more than CHRISTUS Spohn’s Director 600 volunteers donated more of Volunteer Services, knows than 134,000 hours of service just how important it is to have to CHRISTUS Spohn and its the support of the hundreds of mission — the equivalent of individuals who are called to almost 5,600 days. help serve the hospital system’s In addition to that valuable mission and ministry. service, the volunteers also doIn fact, those men, womnated almost $240,000 to fund en and youths are vital to the equipment and special projects daily operations of six hospital throughout their facilities, says campuses across South Texas Carrillo. and at the CHRISTUS Spohn There are multiple volunteer programs aimed at linking Cancer Center.


those who want to give back to CHRISTUS Spohn and the best area in which to help. The adult volunteer program caters to anyone who would like to give of their time to CHRISTUS Spohn, while the college volunteer and junior volunteer programs are designed to provide Coastal Bend students with firsthand opportunities to understand the multiple career paths offered at hospitals and in health care fields. There is even a pet therapy volunteer program to help in healing. It is believed that the dogs that receive special training alter a room’s atmosphere by changing a stressful hospital stay into

a more calming experience for CHRISTUS Spohn's patients. CHRISTUS Spohn volunteers also were honored with multiple awards and honors at last year's annual Texas Association of Healthcare Volunteers Convention. Imelda Gonzalez, President of the CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Alice volunteers, sums up the sentiment of many individuals who donate their service to our health care mission and ministry. “Volunteering provides for me, personally, a deep feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment through the sharing of my time, skills and talents,” says Gonzalez.

CHRISTUS Spohn associates gather in July at Corpus Christi City Hall to be honored by Mayor Nelda Martinez and members of the City Council. July 26, 2015, was declared “CHRISTUS Spohn Health System Day” by special proclamation, highlighting the contributions CHRISTUS Spohn has made to the community.

CHRISTUS Spohn Health System celebrated its 110th anniversary in 2015, honoring the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and Dr. Arthur E. Spohn, as well as thousands of current associates. On July 26, 1905, the doors of the first Spohn Hospital opened on North Beach in Corpus Christi. The Sisters were there to greet and care for the first patient. Dr. Spohn was there, too. It was he who had the vision to build a hospital where he could care for the 7,000 residents of Corpus Christi at the time. Fourteen years later, a devastating hurricane destroyed the building, killing four people, including one Sister. In 1923, a 50-bed Spohn Hospital on Third Street was dedicated. That facility is now known as CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Shoreline. The original efforts of the Sisters and Dr. Spohn helped to build up what today is CHRISTUS Spohn Health System. We are proud to carry on the tradition of our founders to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ in the Coastal Bend. It remains our honor and privilege to serve the families and communities of South Texas. 444 READ MORE AT CHRISTUSSPOHNFOUNDATION.ORG

Linda and Burt Bull, with their son, Dillard

South Texas poses a variety of hazards for those working the brush country range on horseback.

However, sometimes even the smallest of critters can have the most detrimental of impacts — something the Bull family, Church of the Good of Riviera, knows all too well. Shepherd After a fall from horseback on a ranch near Premont, DilGulf Marine Fabricators lard Bull was taken to CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Kleberg’s Employee Foundation Trauma Room A, which, in a twist of fate, was donated three Courtney C. McLain years earlier by Linda and Burt Bull and Kathy and Billy Saul, Nueces Charities, Inc. in honor of Alfonso Abundo, Dillard’s grandfather. Priscilla Stange “You don’t think about it at the time when you donate, and that’s not the reason we gave, but it did help out our family,” CHRISTUS says Burt. SPOHN Linda said it was a twist of fate that her son received care in FOUNDATION the room bearing his grandfather’s name. ENDOWMENT “The doctors and nurses provided us with excellent care and Severo S. Aguilar, Jr. it wasn’t until afterward that they realized who we were and saw Olga and Luis Alaniz that our names were on the plaque outside the trauma room. Barry G. Andrews We didn’t even realize the significance (of the plaque) at the Paula and Frank time,” says Linda. “The doctors were thanking Burt and me, but Armstrong and Wilma at the same time, we were thanking them for the excellent care Dean we received.” Richard Avila “Donations support CHRISTUS Spohn, but more imporRobert H. Bailey, Jr. tantly they support our community.” Brenda B. Baker Lydia P. Benitez

IMPACT OF GIVING: NEONATAL CARE Wesson Gill’s story is one of enduring love, solemn sadness and profound hope. It also is one buoyed by the dedication of CHRISTUS Spohn Health System to make a difference in caring for the Coastal Bend’s most fragile of patients. Sixteen weeks into her pregnancy, Logan Gill and her husband, Robert, discovered during a sonogram she was carrying twins. The flickering images also revealed that Wyatt, Wesson’s brother, wouldn’t survive the birth. The first-time parents and a devoted medical team focused on their faith and their determination to keep Wesson healthy. Delivered at 25 weeks and three days at CHRISTUS Wesson Gill Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-South, Wesson faced extraordinary challenges in the weeks after his birth, spending months in the facility’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Wesson, who weighed less than a pound and a half and suffered from chronic lung disease, underwent heart surgery at 2 weeks of age. With his parents spending every waking moment by his side, Wesson’s condition gently improved in the weeks that followed, enough that Logan and Robert were faced with another difficult question: Who got the pleasure of holding their son more and sharing that priceless interaction? “Robert was able to feed him and bond with him a lot, but Mom usually won out,” says Logan. “What we appreciated most is how the doctors and nurses explained everything to us throughout the process and they let us stay with our son as long as we needed.” “We are grateful for the support we received from everyone at the hospital. Our family couldn’t have asked for better care.” 4READ MORE AT CHRISTUSSPOHNFOUNDATION.ORG

Bill Colston Jr. and his wife, Judy, joined Dr. Martin Boyd in July at an open house to show off the renovations to the Labor and Delivery wing.

CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Kleberg unveiled multiple renovations in 2015, helping to set the stage for continued quality health care in the Kingsville area. In July, hospital administrators were proud to show off more than $600,000 in renovations to the Labor and Delivery wing. The renovations, made possible by proceeds from the annual South Texas Charity Weekend, included new flooring and furniture, with a focus on improving the comfort and safety of delivery rooms and newborn care areas. The upgrades also include a remodeled nurse’s station and artwork throughout the delivery unit. In November, the community gathered to see the expanded Colston Family Physical Rehabilitation and Wellness Center. The Center, which was moved to the second floor, features a new track, more gym equipment and a health bar. The renovations were made possible by generous contributions from the Colston family and the South Texas Charity Weekend.
