Physicians in The Woodlands have formed The Caduceus Society, an exclusive giving society for physicians to provide philanthropic support for CHI St. Luke's Health - The Woodlands Hospital. Members of this prestigious group are given the opportunity to donate funds to projects and programs that benefit patients and staff at the hospital. 

The Caduceus Society takes its name from the Caduceus symbol, which has represented our power to wage war on disease and death since the Babylonian empire in 3500 B.C. Today, it is synonymous with the medical profession. 

Membership is open to all current practicing or retired physicians, even those not directly employed at CHI St. Luke's Health - The Woodlands Hospital.

Caduceus Society chairs Syed Raza, Vincent Aquino and Peter Shedden wish to thank the inaugural Caduceus Society members:

Gareth Adams Peter R. Kvapil
James Maggort Shail Maheshwari
Michael T. Ott Derek Schoppa
Brenda Thorian

Physician engagement is integral in establishing The Woodlands Hospital as a regional medical center. St Luke's Foundation is grateful for these physicians' support. To learn more about The Caduceus Society, visit or contact Carolyn Hays at 832.355.5855 or
