AdventHealth Central Texas has added an additional $100,000 to its coffers, on the way to its $1.2 million building goal. A check, presented by Jim McKinnon, the AdventHealth Central Texas Foundation board chair, at Thursday’s Gold Star Gala, brought the total to $800,000 before the night was through.

Glad to read about this. I wonder if any one from FT. Hood represented this City largest employer??? Can't wait to see if Advents competition (Scott & White.....) does this for our community. Did anyone from City Council attend? Our City Council should have attended then they may learn how to turn around our City. The people in that room are the individuals who can make a difference to Killeen.
