Houston Methodist Sugar Land pavilion named after philanthropist couple

Houston Methodist Sugar Land (Texas) Hospital is naming a pavilion after a local couple who made a generous donation to the facility.

The Bhalla Main Pavilion is named after Col. Raj and Kanwal Bhalla, Sugar Land residents who have been patients of the hospital since it opened in 1998. The amount of their donation was not disclosed.

Mr. Bhalla said in a Dec. 9 ceremony that their Sikh faith considers service to others a form of worship.

"By mind, we teach others. By money, we help the needy — be they the people or organizations. And by body, we render volunteer service," Mr. Bhalla said, according to a Dec. 13 hospital news release. "Kanwal and I have found Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital's doctors and nurses extremely caring, courteous and professionally outstanding, so we are thrilled to support this hospital and encourage everyone to contribute to this institution and their work in caring for the community."

The Bhallas' donation is an unrestricted gift, meaning it can be used at leadership's discretion. Houston Methodist said the money will support "various programmatic efforts across the hospital."
