RAISE THE ROOF! FUNDRAISER SUPPORTS CLEVELAND CLINIC FLORIDA EXPANSION
2950 Cleveland Clinic Boulevard
Weston, Fl 33331
Cleveland Clinic Florida will host Raise the Roof! on November 18, 2016, a fundraising event in support of the expansion of its Weston campus and the establishment of a new family health and ambulatory surgery center in Coral Springs. The evening event is part of The Campaign for Cleveland Clinic Florida, a multi-phase philanthropic initiative focused on growing and enhancing clinical services offered at the academic medical center, home to the #1 ranked hospital in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market by U.S. News & World Report.
Under the direction of the host committee -- Glenda Abbate, Michelle Barsoum, Edythe C. Harrison, Monica Maroone, Debbie Menten, Mayor Daniel J. Stermer, and Eberto Vitier -- Raise the Roof! kicks off at 7 p.m. on the Weston campus of Cleveland Clinic Florida and will include live entertainment and dancing, food from NYY Steakhouse, specialty cocktails, and a live auction.
Five Cleveland Clinic Florida master clinicians will also be honored at Raise the Roof! for their lifelong commitment to providing exceptional patient care and educating young and future physicians and caregivers: Howard Bush, MD; Diana Galindo, MD; Elizabeth Stone, MD; Andreas Tzakis, MD; and Steven Wexner, MD.
The event will help support a planned $302 million capital investment that involves a new 180,000 sq. ft. multi-level hospital tower with additional hospital beds and critical care areas to accommodate surgical cases from medical specialty areas and the transplant program. Emergency room capacity will be increased by 25 percent, and a Women’s Center will be created. Additional campus enhancements will include a new larger cafeteria, renovation of common areas, and additional parking.
“Our expansion will allow Cleveland Clinic Florida, the top ranked hospital in South Florida, to meet the growing needs of the communities and patients we are proud to serve,” said Wael Barsoum, MD, President of Cleveland Clinic Florida. “We are grateful to our donors who make it possible for us to extend the reach of Cleveland Clinic’s unique model of medicine that combines patient-centered care with research and innovation to achieve clinical excellence.”
