Covenant Health recognized milestones, with a public celebration of its
past and its future.
The Covenant Milestones event, held outside next to the original Methodist
Hospital tower at 21st Street and Louisville Avenue, proclaimed the beginning of Covenant’s
year-long centennial festivities, the beginning of its public Keeping
the Covenant capital campaign, and honored the original Methodist Hospital
tower before demolition begins.

“We’re proud that Covenant Health has served the region for
100 years in various forms, and of our Christian ministry of healing,
beginning with our Methodist and Catholic roots,” said Richard Parks,
regional CEO of Covenant Health. “The Keeping the Covenant campaign
and master facilities plan is our promise to continue that century-long
tradition of caring for our neighbors, friends, coworkers and families
into the next 100 years and beyond. There are many opportunities for the
community to help support that journey, and together, we will continue
the proud legacy of giving back to the place we call home.”
The Covenant Foundation is seeking relevant artifacts from the different
eras of history, to borrow or to have gifted, to create displays for the
duration of the centennial celebration. Those would be any item (pins,
photos, uniforms, mementos, etc.) from the Lubbock Sanitarium and Clinic;
nursing schools (including Lubbock and Post sanitariums, Methodist and
Covenant); Lubbock General Hospital; Methodist Hospital; Plains Hospital
and Clinic; and St. Mary of the Plains Hospital. For questions or more
information, contact the Covenant Foundation at (806) 725-6089.
