BREAST CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
Sponsored by John Wristen
It started as a $1.6 million capital campaign for the Breast Center of Excellence at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo. But thanks to innovative thinking and proactive leadership, it has evolved into so much more. Thanks to the generosity of the people in southern Colorado, the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Women’s Health Center will open this summer.
Since last year’s Colorado Coaches for Charity dinner, St. Mary-Corwin’s Breast Center of Excellence achieved accreditation from National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. The Campaign for the Breast Center of Excellence identified a need for a comprehensive women’s health center dedicated to providing world-class, compassionate care for women in southern Colorado. The center will be home to the Breast Center of Excellence, a library, a meditation room, a community education room, and an array of health services devoted to women.
So far, more than $1.2 million has been raised through community donations. Funds raised from the Colorado Coaches for Charity dinner will help complete this project, a first for women throughout southern Colorado.
