The Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s Hospital held a kickoff party at the Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center May 22 for the 47th Art & Antique Show. 

Women’s Board President Katherine Forrester thanked Robin Albaneze and Robin Love, co-chairs for the upcoming show, called “Paris in Full Bloom,” and scheduled for Dec. 6-8, 2019. She also shared her gratitude for all members, saying “Everything you do helps us help the hospital and we couldn’t do it without each of you.”

Wolfson Children’s Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jerry Bridgham and Jennifer Southall, Baptist Health perinatal nursing director, shared details on the new Wolfson Children’s Critical Care Tower, which will include a 75-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Center and 26-bed Pediatric Care Unit. The Women’s Board has been instrumental in helping fund the new center, as it moves into Year 2 of a five-year, $4 million pledge to fund the NICU.

The party was sponsored by Wells Fargo, and the gathering heard from John Whitner, regional private banking manager for Wells Fargo, who said, “It’s an honor to have a world-class children’s hospital right here and now we have a world-class cancer center here, too.”
