The J.P. Humphreys Foundation, named for late TAMKO president, has donated $500,000 to the Freeman Foundation today.

In response to the gift, the third floor of the Freeman Tower will be named the J.P. Humphreys Foundation Surgical Unit.

The money is part of Freeman’s “Taking Our Community’s Health Care to the Next Level” campaign. The Freeman Foundation raised $1 million in 2006, and is aiming for an additional $4 million by 2010.

TAMKO’s relationship with Freeman dates back to the early 1970s, when Leland Browne, a former senior executive at TAMKO and a former chairman of the Freeman board of directors, spearheaded Freeman’s drive to expand from the old hospital location at 20th and Sergeant to the current location on west 32nd Street.

Browne called upon late TAMKO president J.P. Humphreys for his support for corporate giving.
