Katy, TX (May 20, 2016) Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus recently received the Houston West Chamber of Commerce’s Business Partnership Award for their continued efforts to improve and enrich the lives of individuals in the west Houston area. Since the hospital opened its doors five years ago, they have been incredibly committed to not only providing the highest-quality care possible for patients, but investing in the community through partnerships, events and educational opportunities.
“We are so honored to receive this award,” says Chanda Cashen Chacon, president of Texas Children’s West Campus. “Here at West Campus, we are dedicated to the west Houston community and love being involved with so many wonderful individuals and organizations in the area.”
As part of their community engagement efforts, West Campus hosts annual events such as the Family Fun Run and sponsors area events including the inaugural Typhoon Texas Triathlon. The hospital also recently hosted a group of over 50 eighth graders from The Village School to teach them about the health care industry and the numerous career opportunities available. This new partnership will provide additional experiences for more students in the community to learn about the hospital and help them choose potential areas of interest to study in high school and college.
