THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital's leadership team and Woodforest National Bank Board members celebrated the naming of Woodforest Bank Sky Plaza during a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 19, 2017.

In late 2016, Woodforest National Bank committed $1 million to the new hospital to name its third floor atrium space and support the hospital's Excellence Fund.  The Excellence Fund advances the hospital's highest priorities and accelerates innovative research and physician recruitment in key clinical areas.

"Our demonstrated commitment to our communities is a perfect match for a partnership with Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital," said Cathy Nash, CEO of Woodforest National Bank. "Our gift to the Excellence Fund provides the forum for our organizations to work together with a focus on offering the best programs, delivering Leading Medicine right here in The Woodlands, and making a positive impact on our friends and neighbors."  

The $1 million gift is the largest philanthropic commitment to a Houston Methodist hospital, outside the Texas Medical Center.

"Not only are we thankful to Woodforest National Bank for this remarkable gift, but we are also thankful that our institutions share common values and the commitment to serve The Woodlands and surrounding communities with integrity and purpose," said Debbie Sukin, CEO of Houston Methodist The Woodlands.

Woodforest Bank Sky Plaza is among the most prominent spaces in the new hospital.  It provides a space for patients, visitors, physicians and staff to visit and relax, and it will be the site for future hospital and community gatherings.
