NES Gives Back


The Penrose-St. Francis Hospital Foundation offers guest homes to families and patients to stay together during difficult and often prolonged treatment and care. The Woody and Millie Ingram Guest House at Penrose-St. Francis offers a place to sleep, shower, eat, pray and find comfort specifically focused on families with NICU babies or those undergoing cancer treatment. Construction is wrapping up in late 2023 on the new Woody and Millie Ingram Guest House.

Partnering with HBA Cares (Housing and Builder Association), NES provided the Development Plan and Landscape Plan for the entitlement process of the Woody and Millie Ingram project. NES staff recently had the privilege of working on the landscape installation alongside HBA Cares. Blaine Perkins (pictured), Brooks Swenson, and Jordan Smith readily volunteered their day to lend a hand digging, shoveling and planting while securing a few blisters along the way.
