CFMCH Participates in Operation Military Embrace 
Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital 
Monday, 14 December 2009 

During the month of November, Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital staff supported a worthy cause – Operation Military Embrace.  Employees donated supplies and made holiday cards in an effort to give back.  Operation Military Embrace is a non-profit organization that helps provide support and comfort to wounded soldiers and their families. 

“This is the time of year when we give thanks for what this past year has brought us, and we wanted to give thanks by helping others,” explains Margie Kannel, who headed up the efforts at Cy-Fair Hospital.  “Our staff donated items for families in need that will be delivered to wounded soldiers by Operation Military Embrace at the San Antonio Military Medical Center this month.”

Donated items included cards made by employee’s children, batteries, socks, umbrellas, school supplies, baby diapers and wipes, toiletries, disposable cameras, CDs and DVDs, and crossword puzzle books.

Cy-Fair Hospital prides itself on being a part of the community and helping where needed.  For more information on our hospital, visit
