‘Everyday people’ transform care at Providence Everett — again

Marshall and Katherine Cymbaluk call themselves “everyday people.”

What they recently did, however, does not happen every day. The long-time Everett couple — along with their son Jeff, his wife Jodie, and their two daughters Jaime and Hannah — made a $5-million gift to Providence General Foundation to help bring innovative stroke treatment to the people of this region.

“When we heard about Providence’s plans to expand stroke care, we decided to step in and try to make it happen more quickly,” shared the Cymbaluks.

This gift gives patients around-the-clock access to a procedure called a catheter-based thrombectomy, which quickly removes a stroke-causing blood clot from the brain via a small incision in the groin.

“Patients shouldn’t need to go all the way to Seattle in an emergency like a stroke — it’s a waste of precious time,” the Cymbaluks said. “We wanted to make sure that Providence has the technology and talent to provide these critical, life-saving services right here in Everett.”

Because of this generous gift, Providence is already saving lives with this treatment in Everett.

Katherine and Marshall Cymbaluk have long ties to Providence. Katherine was a registered nurse at the former Everett General Hospital and Marshall was an early member of the Providence Hospital Foundation, now known as the Providence General Foundation.

This isn’t the first time the Cymbaluks have made a transformational gift to Providence. In 2011, they donated $5 million toward construction of the 12-story medical tower on the Colby Campus. The Marshall & Katherine Cymbaluk Medical Tower has dramatically impacted the region’s health care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Cymbaluk family’s continued support has enhanced Providence’s ability to deliver world-class care,” said Darren Redick, CEO of Providence Northwest Washington. “Their latest gift is yet another demonstration of their inspiring generosity and deep commitment to our community.”

Marshall and Katherine are 50-year residents of Snohomish County — and a local business success story. They operate Motor Trucks, Inc., an Everett-based franchise for International Trucks that provides parts, sales and services for heavy-duty trucks.

The Cymbaluks say they feel strongly about giving back and hope their gift will inspire others to do the same.

The enhancement of stroke services is part of a wider investment by Providence and Providence General Foundation in key clinical areas. Read more about The Campaign for a Greater Providence at AGreaterProvidence.org.
