The Transformation of Emergency Medicine
The HonorHealth Thompson Peak Medical Center Emergency Room will undergo a major transformation, and name change, thanks to Craig and Karen Stull. Their inspirational $4 million gift paves the way for the hospital to meet the needs of the surrounding area and continue to ensure our families, neighbors and friends receive expedient, quality care when they need it most: during a medical crisis.
“As a grateful patient, I know the value of comprehensive and compassionate healthcare,” stated Craig Stull. “Transformational emergency medicine is something I believe our growing and demographically diverse community needs, so my investment is in healthcare but also people – to help save more lives.”
Establishing the Craig and Karen Stull Emergency Department at HonorHealth Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center is underway and the gift will be used to build seven more exam rooms for expedited care and create a centralized care station for physicians and nurses to collaborate. To meet a growing community need, the gift also will add a negative-pressure room and expanded triage rooms. The additional capacity will allow staff to serve the increase in emergency and surgical patients without delay or over-crowding.
“We love our community and want it to have the best – especially when there is a life-threatening event,” commented Karen Stull. “So, by design, our gift helps ensure the best emergency care possible whether it be surgery, stroke or trauma care.”
Noted Ashleigh Leite, Senior Vice President, Major Gifts, “Generous hearts fuel the work we do and the health and well-being of our entire community. Their commitment is making a difference and creating a wave of positive impact for Arizonans.”

CARES Act Provisions Extended
The CARES Act passed in 2020 and included several charitable tax provisions to encourage giving. Congress has extended these provisions for 2021 including:
• A deduction for charitable donors who do not itemize when filing their tax returns. If you do not itemize but make a cash gift to charity, you will be allowed to take a special tax deduction, up to $300 ($600 for joint filers), to reduce your tax liability.
• An increase in the deduction limit up to 100% of a donor's annual income for cash gifts (previously the deduction was capped at 60% of annual income). If you make a gift you will be able to deduct more this year.
