Oakleaf developer makes donation to St. Vincent’s
A prominent Northeast Florida builder has made a significant donation to help St. Vincent’s Medical Center expand in Clay County.
The undisclosed gift – what St. Vincent’s calls a leadership gift – was announced Dec. 26 and will help fund the Catholic hospital currently under construction on a 35-acre site at Branan Field Road near Blanding Boulevard.
St. Vincent’s will honor Dave and Nancy Hutson, owners of the Hutson Companies, by naming the local hospital St. Vincent’s Clay County – The Hutson Family Campus. "Generations of families have depended on St. Vincent’s for high quality, compassionate care. Through this gift, Dave and Nancy Hutson will touch numerous lives by helping to bring the same quality care closer to the doorsteps of the people in Clay County," said Jane R. Lanier, CFRE, President & Chief Development Officer of the St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation. "Their gift will serve families for years to come and we are forever grateful for their kindness and generosity."
With 147,500 square feet, the new hospital is scheduled to be completed in October 2013 and have a $52 million economic impact in the coming three years in Clay County.
The Hutsons, developers of the 6,400acre Oakleaf Plantation, said they gave the gift because the hospital’s mission of helping the poor and less fortunate speaks to them.
"We chose St. Vincent’s because of their Mission to help the poor and vulnerable in our community," said Dave Hutson. "Nancy and I are pleased to be a part of the St. Vincent’s family."
"Dave and Nancy Hutson have a special place in their hearts for families. They have spent their lives creating communities that provide the best environments to live, work, and play," said Moody Chisholm, President & CEO of St. Vincent’s HealthCare.
"Now they have made a gift to St. Vincent’s that will assist us in providing safe, quality medical care that families need and want closer to home."
