The gifts make both Mrs. Ruhlman and Mrs. Coleman two of only 15 Campaign Visionaries in University Hospitals' nearly 150-year history to have made gifts of $10 million or more. In addition, both women hold significant volunteer leadership roles within the system. Mrs. Ruhlman currently serves as Chair of UH MacDonald Women's Health Leadership Council and Mrs. Coleman is Chair of the UH Seidman Cancer Leadership Council.
