Colorado Couple Donates More Than a Half Million to INTEGRIS Health For Heart

Research Grateful patient leaves portion of estate to INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center; Gift among top 10 largest ever received by hospital

Corrine Thompson only intended to pass through Oklahoma City momentarily in March 1976. But after a massive heart attack sent her to INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center for the next two and a half months, the Englewood, Colo., native developed a heartfelt connection to the city and the hospital – one that endured throughout her lifetime, which she honors today with a legacy gift. In tribute to the “superior care” she and her husband, Harry, felt they received at the hands of INTEGRIS staff, the Thompsons bequeathed more than $560,000 of their estate to the hospital to benefit heart research.

“We are humbled the Thompsons chose to honor their care at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center through a legacy gift that supports their vision for improved cardiac research and treatment,” said Bruce Lawrence, INTEGRIS Health CEO. “Today we not only celebrate INTEGRIS’ largest realized bequest, but also the impact premier patient care can have on saving future lives.”


A couple who shared a passion for art, Corrine was a trained artist and Harry was an award-winning nature photographer. The couple spent the majority of their life together in Colorado and enjoyed retirement by working together on joint art projects.

In March 1976, Corrine and a friend were driving through Oklahoma City to prepare a large collection of Indian art for auction when she suffered a massive heart attack. She endured open heart surgery and a 78-day hospital stay. Harry often told family members he credited INTEGRIS Baptist with performing the life-saving care Corrine needed to allow them to continue their life together.

“[Corrine] had open heart surgery at INTEGRIS Baptist, and that saved her life. The caregivers were so kind to her, and [Harry and Corrine] were so grateful and never forgot. This gift was to show their gratitude and repay that kindness in some way,” said Mary Torres, Harry’s sister.

Corrine passed away in 1994, and Harry in 2010.

“Planned gifts are powerful vessels for leaving a legacy at INTEGRIS and a viable alternative for those who cannot make major outright gifts,” said Brad Walker, INTEGRIS Foundation executive director. “This generous donation will support the initiative Harry and Corrine felt most passionate about, advancing heart disease treatment, and we will gratefully honor this legacy.”

The men who repeated the words of the senior commander like customs gathered in the barracks and gathered in front of the barracks.

Clark promotes. Find the person in charge of the garrison and let them know you are approaching!

Clarke, aware of the current situation, asked the size of the enemy.

At least three companies are over. - 카지노주소

Whether the news was transmitted or not, the infantry began to move briskly. The civilians saw an uneasy face as they watched bustling infantry. However, I followed the instructions of the soldiers calmly without making a disturbance. - 강원랜드

Even though the Gentiles fell to this line, it was already a few years. If the Gentiles were not dying and not disciplined, it was enough time to equip them with the skills of a number of senior articles. It was never good news that these were not one, and that many of them were in the cavalry. - 개츠비카지노

The chief of staff responded with a smile that did not suit the situation. It is the blindness of the Chongryongdo that the headquarters intentionally inflated and propagated to encourage the morale of the frontline, and the hysteresis of the article of Gradus. - 더킹카지노
