Jay and Molly Precourt were honored for their $10 million gift to the Vail Valley Medical Center (VVMC). In recognition of their generous donation, VVMC’s new cardiac catheterization lab was named the Precourt Family Car diac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Lab.
“We are incredibly moved by the Precourt’s generosity,” says VVMC’s President and CEO, Doris Kirchner. “VVMC will forever be grateful for their support, and the Precourt Family Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Lab will always remind us of the kindness and confidence they bestowed on the hospital.”
Long-time residents of Eagle County, the Precourts have been champions for building a cardiac cath lab at the medical center. Jay has served on the hospital’s Board of Directors since 2011, and the family’s donation helped seed the $75 million capital campaign recently launched by the VVMC’s Foundation. The Precourts’ gift not only supports the cardiac program and cath lab, but also extends to the hospital’s endocrinology program.
“The lab’s team saves lives everyday by performing the most advanced procedures,” says Jay. “It’s this type of specialized care that will make VVMC the most modern mountain hospital in the world.”
