(DECEMBER 21, 2017) CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS
- IBC Bank-Corpus Christi donated a Leadership Gift of $50,000 to Driscoll Children's Hospital to assist with building a new two-story, 70,000-square-foot pavilion, in addition to helping the hospital meet a $1 million Challenge Grant from The J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation.
The $50,000 check, which was presented to Driscoll Children's Hospital in November at a special event, will assist in the creation of a new Outpatient Surgery Center and the relocation and modernization of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
"The addition of the new central physical plant will ensure the right level of capacity for the entire campus and any additional growth down the road," said Martha Avery, Vice President of Development for Driscoll Children's Hospital. "We are proud to have IBC Bank-Corpus Christi as a partner in our mission of providing ‘hope and healing' for the children of South Texas in their time of need."
Harold Shockley, Jr., IBC Bank-Corpus Christi President and CEO, said the donation to the Driscoll Children's Hospital is not only helping families who live in the Corpus Christi area, but also other South Texas markets, including Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley, who seek treatment in its pediatric specialty clinics.
"IBC Bank and Driscoll Children's Hospital have served South Texas for a number of years," said Shockley. "We are honored to be a partner and support this outstanding hospital."
