University Hospitals Receives $14.5 Million In New Gifts

CLEVELAND, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- University Hospitals (UH) in Cleveland, Ohio, has received two significant gifts totaling $14.5 million in support of the health system's $1.5 billion Discover the Difference Campaign. Kathleen Coleman has donated $7.5 million to the UH Seidman Cancer Center and Barbara Peterson Ruhlman has made a gift of $6 million to UH MacDonald Women's Hospital, which will be matched by a $1 million gift from the Rainbow Babies & Children's Foundation.

UH Chief Executive Officer Thomas F. Zenty III announced the gifts to a crowd of more than 400 friends and supporters of the health system at its annual outreach event in Naples, Fla. "Barbara and Kathy have both committed decades of dedicated service to University Hospitals as tireless volunteer leaders and generous benefactors," said Mr. Zenty. "Their extraordinary generosity will enable UH to further strengthen our nationally recognized programs in cancer and women's health and will have a lasting legacy for the patients treated at Seidman Cancer Center and MacDonald Women's Hospital."

These are the largest gifts since UH announced plans in December 2012 to continue its $1 billion Discover the Difference Campaign and pursue an expanded goal of $1.5 billion. The campaign – the largest in the history of Northeast Ohio – has received unprecedented support, including more than 100,000 gifts from more than 60,000 individuals, foundations and corporations. This brings new gifts to UH since the $1.5 billion announcement to $27 million.

The Generosity of Mrs. Kathleen A. Coleman: A $7.5 Million Gift to UH Seidman Cancer Center

Mrs. Coleman has made this new $7.5 million gift to further advance cancer clinical trials at UH Case Medical Center Seidman Cancer Center. She made previous gifts of $3 million in honor of her late husband, Dr. Lester E. Coleman, bringing her lifetime giving to UH to $10.5 million. Dr. Coleman, a scientist and the former CEO of Lubrizol Corporation, was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer at age 69 and participated in a clinical trial at Seidman Cancer Center.

In honor of Mrs. Coleman's significant donation, UH is establishing the Kathy and Les Coleman Clinical Trials Center at Seidman Cancer Center. Mrs. Coleman's gift will strengthen multiple aspects of the program, from expediting drug development to advancing diagnostic technology and developing new cancer treatments. The gift will support the expansion of the renowned clinical research program and is earmarked for early stage clinical trials, new technology and research equipment as well as patient education on the importance of clinical trials participation.
