General Frank Sackton with nurses from the HonorHealth Pediatrics Unit

The pediatric patients at HonorHealth Shea Medical Center have their own special star watching over them. The sparkling lights on the ceiling are a lasting reminder of the late Lieutenant General Frank Sackton, one of Arizona's most notable military figures. A charitable gift annuity enabled General Sackton to achieve his goal of sound financial investment while also serving as a champion for HonorHealth's littlest patients.

"We fondly remember how General Sackton's devotion and caring spirit touched the lives of our young patients and their families in very special ways. From the General Electric Giraffe Omnibed, a state-of-the-art incubator/warming bed that emulates a womb-like environment for preemies, to the addition of a child life specialist in the emergency room, General Sackton's philanthropy made a world of difference," says Jan Miller, vice president, major gifts.
