Roberta G. Veloz
On June 21, 2012 Henry Mayo honored one of its greatest benefactors and supporters, Roberta G. Veloz, at its Cardiovascular Services expansion open house celebration. Physicians, staff, and community leaders gathered to celebrate and honor Roberta who singlehandedly gave rise to the expansion of Henry Mayo's cardiovascular services.
Since 1989, Roberta has worked tirelessly to support the development of programs, services and cardiac care at Henry Mayo. She has served on both the Hospital and Foundation board of directors and has made a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of those who come through our doors at Henry Mayo.
Roberta has not only given her time and talents to Henry Mayo; she has donated more than $5 million dollars to the hospital--all aimed at developing critical infrastructure and programs to care for our community's hearts.
“I’ve given to – and been active on – many, many charities. And now, in my retirement, I only have one charity. And that is the Hospital. “ – said Roberta.
On behalf of every "broken heart" that has, and will, continue to be mended at Henry Mayo, we send a heartfelt "thank you" to Roberta.
