Couple Honored for Improving Health Care in the Region
Frank and Jackie Leonard of Bristol were honored by the Wellmont Foundation for their work to improve health care in the region. They over-see the Leonard Family Foundation that works closely with the Eastman Chemical Company. The Leonards have been longtime supporters of the Wellmont Bristol Regional Medical Center as they assisted chemotherapy patients by opening the Jackie Leonard Infusion Center and they donated funds to the breast-cancer center. They joined with several other donors to help fund the Da-Vinci Surgical System that provides robotic devices to help doctors perform a wide range of delicate medical procedures while allowing patients to recover sooner with minimal incision scars. The Eastman Chemical Foundation was honored for its support of the 114-million dollar improvement project at the Wellmont Holston Valley Medical System which allows the Kingsport hospital to use the daVinci robotic devices.
