Campaign Devoted to Renewing the Perot Center’s Mission to Serve the Community
“When you invest in the Margot Perot Center renovation, you’re impacting thousands of lives, and that’s priceless. Individually and community-wide you’re doing something for someone else. For us, job one is a healthy baby and a healthy mom. We want them to leave saying their experience was great!”
—Dr. Eugene Hunt, Chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Division at Texas Health Dallas
In September 2023, the Margot Perot Center for Women and Infants will celebrate 40 years of service to the women of North Texas. The center enjoys a stellar national reputation for obstetrical, gynecological, and whole woman care, sees 5,000 births, and provides care for more than 175,000 patients annually.
Faced with burgeoning patient demand, increasing patient expectations, and the limitations presented by a nearly 40-year-old structure, Dr. Eugene Hunt, chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology division at Texas Health says renovation was the only answer.
“We are trying to do something that will last another 40 years. The technology in the labor and delivery rooms, the operating rooms, and at the nurses’ stations will be leading edge. This will enable physicians, nurses, and the whole healthcare team to more easily deliver the best care possible.”
The Foundation is grateful to the many community volunteers and donors who have already stepped up to support this campaign effort. For more information and to support the Perot renovation, please contact Shannon Fisher at 682-236-5965 or ShannonFisher@texashealth.org.
