PENSACOLA, Fla. (Dec. 14, 2022) – Chad and Brooke Henderson donated a transformational gift of $1 million to the Baptist Health Care Foundation in the spirit of Chad’s grandparents, Arch and Lorraine Henderson of Pensacola, Florida. In honor of this gift, a second four-story, 80,000-square-foot medical office building to be built on the new Baptist Hospital campus will be named the Henderson Health Center.

“Much like the goal of the new medical office building, my grandparents always fostered an environment of welcoming and well-being, a place to be cared for and healed,” Chad said. “One of the things that’s most important to us is to lead by example, just as our grandparents did. We are blessed and fortunate, so we want to give back and positively impact others. This is our first gift of this magnitude, and I hope it’s not the last.”

Chad Henderson founded Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate more than 10 years ago. The company is based in Pensacola and has seen tremendous growth and success in the health care real estate industry, now managing assets in more than 25 states and regional offices in Milwaukee, Dallas, Atlanta and Central Florida. 

The Hendersons have amassed numerous memories with Baptist Health Care over the years. Their four children were all born at Baptist, and both have had parents and grandparents who have received significant and meaningful care at Baptist. They wanted to give back to Baptist in a meaningful way that would have a lasting impact for years to come.

“We are grateful for Chad and Brooke for leading by example and making a tremendous difference to those we serve every day at Baptist,” said Mark Faulkner, president and CEO of Baptist Health Care. “We are excited about the opportunities that the Henderson Health Center will bring to the new Baptist Hospital campus.”
