FOX4: Henry Bloch's Lasting Impact on Neurological Care in Kansas City

April 30, 2019

Hundreds of people came together to remember Henry Bloch, the co-founder of H&R Block, at a public memorial Monday. 

The entrepreneur and philanthropist left a lasting mark on Kansas City, including a historic $25 million contribution to advance Saint Luke's world-class neuroscience program, which was renamed the Saint Luke's Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute in 2013.

FOX4 talked to Julie Quirin, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of Saint Luke's Health System, about the Blochs' significant impact on neurological care in Kansas City.

"What it means for the people of Kansas City really is that they don't have to leave for world-class neurology and neurosurgical care," Quirin said. "They can come right here and get the very best. They don't have to go to the coasts, they don't have to go to Chicago. The patients-- and this is really what Henry and Marion wanted to do-- is take care of the patients and the people of Kansas City."
