Stopp family

Pensacola, Fla. (May 18, 2021) – Margaret and Harry Stopp have made a $250,000 contribution to support the new Baptist Health Care campus at Brent Lane and I-110.

Margaret Stopp has served on Baptist boards since 2009 and currently serves as the board chair for Baptist Health Care Foundation. She and her husband have chosen Baptist for their care for many years. They credit the organization’s culture, compassion and local engagement as their reasons for donating to Baptist, noting this is their way of giving back to the community.

“The Baptist culture is really important,” Margaret Stopp said. “We see the leaders and team members striving to make a difference – to care for people. Baptist walks the walk when it comes to what Jesus taught, and we admire and appreciate that. No one is perfect, but we see Baptist working toward perfection, always trying to treat those they serve with compassion and dignity.”

Baptist announced the new main hospital campus investment in 2019. The new campus will offer greater access, enhanced technology and a concentration of related services, making it easier and more convenient to deliver better care to those served.

“Generous individuals such as Margaret and Harry are vital to help Baptist transform for the future so we can serve our community for generations to come,” said Mark Faulkner, president and CEO of Baptist Health Care. “We are incredibly grateful for the Stopps’ philanthropic gift and longstanding support.”
