Vancouver-based Southwest Washington Medical Center’s new breast care center was named Oct. 7 in honor of local philanthropists Lee and Connie Kearney.

The couple were among the first to support the center’s construction, pledging $2.5 million.

Connie Kearney is a member of the Southwest Foundation Board of Directors and a 10-year breast cancer survivor. Lee Kearney is a member of the board of directors for Southwest Washington Health System, SWMC’s parent company.
