University of Kansas Health System Receives $2 Million Gift

The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City has announced a $2 million gift from Cloud L. "Bud" Cray, Jr., and his late wife, Sally Cray, in support of its cardiac health programs.

Given in recognition of the care the Cray family received from cardiologist Charles Porter and the staff of the system's heart program, the gift will support the cardiomyopathy/heart failure and cardio-oncology programs.

Bud Cray is chairman emeritus of MGP Ingredients in Atchison. The Cray family have been longtime supporters of the health system and provided the resources to open the Cray Diabetes Center in 1979.

"We are so grateful to have Bud Cray and his late wife, Sally, as supporters and friends of the University of Kansas Health System," said University of Kansas Health System president and CEO Bob Page. "Because of their belief in our heart program, their gift will help future patients who are the sickest of the sick receive the most advanced care."
