Annual Report to the Community
and Report on Philanthropy
The history of University Hospitals spans nearly 150 years, and 2012 stands among the greatest. It was a landmark year – one of milestones and momentum in pursuit of the finest in patient-centered care.
The milestones were memorable and many. Among 2012’s first was the $50 million gift from the Harrington family – the largest ever to UH – to establish the Harrington Discovery Institute at UH Case Medical Center. Rounding out the year in 2012 was the achievement on Dec. 12 of our $1 billion goal for Discover the Difference: The Campaign for University Hospitals, thanks to a $32.5 million gift from the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Foundation.
These bookend milestones also epitomize new momentum for our health system, our patients and our future. The Harrington initiative will advance drug discovery for generations. And UH will meet even more of tomorrow’s needs for advanced care by raising our development campaign target to $1.5 billion.
In between these two great milestones, 2012 brought many other momentous achievements. Among them:
We invite you to continue to share in our achievements and advances in 2013 and beyond as we strive together to fulfill our mission: To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.
