    Leaving a Legacy of Health

    In April, 1991, San Antonio Hospital Foundation received $5,000 from the estate of Dorothy Mae Thompson of Oakland, California. There was one problem, though. No one at the Foundation knew Mrs. Thompson. Who could she be? Because no one knew about the legacy, there was no opportunity to thank her for her gift. As it turned out, Mrs. Thompson had once lived in the area, used the hospital, and was pleased with the care she received. But it would have been nice to be able to thank her in person.

    One family's vision may be a community's future...

    The Living Legacy Society was born from that experience. Now we try to build closer relationships with special people like Mrs. Thompson—people who are grateful for San Antonio Community Hospital—who want to make sure the hospital is here to take care of their family and friends and others in our community for years to come.
