Katy, TX (August 4, 2016) The Katy-West Houston Pi Beta Phi alumnae group recently presented $4,800 to Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. These funds will go toward West Campus’ library, which offers books, board games, puzzles and movies for patients and their families to enjoy. The library also houses medical and parenting resources, paperback fiction, magazines, foreign language books, computers and a fax machine.
Texas Children’s has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Pi Beta Phi alumnae and share a mutual commitment to literacy and education. The first Pi Beta Phi Patient/Family Library opened in 1985 at Texas Children’s Hospital, and in 2011 the Pi Beta Phi Patient/Family Library opened at West Campus. Currently, there are over 140 Pi Beta Phi Book Nooks—located at Texas Children’s, West Campus, Texas Children’s Health Centers, Texas Children’s Urgent Care facilities, Centers for Children and Women, and in all of the Texas Children’s Pediatric practices throughout the Houston area.
After the check presentation, Pi Beta Phi alumnae members received a tour of West Campus, which included visits to the library, radiology department and sports medicine area. As the greater Houston’s first suburban hospital designed exclusively for children, West Campus upholds Texas Children’s mission of providing the highest-quality health care for children, coupled with a location that’s convenient and accessible for area families.
