Stowe Endowed Chair - Welsh Heart Center
On November 6, 2006, Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital began a new era of cardiac care, under the exceptional leadership of medical director Cary. L. Stowe, MD. Filling a critical community need for life-saving heart care close to home, Dr. Stowe assembled an experienced, highly-skilled team to provide new standards of cardiac care. Under his direction, the Welsh Heart Center is now a leader in advanced heart care, offering comprehensive cardiovascular diagnostics and procedures, and rivaling the quality and outcomes of major medical centers throughout the United States.
The endowed chair for Welsh Heart Center leadership named in Dr. Stowe's honor, ensures CCIRH is able to maintain the level of leadership exemplified by Dr. Stowe to benefit patients in our community. Funds will be used for recruitment and retention of future medical directors to sustain excellence and ensure advancements in cardiac care at the Welsh Heart Center.

Excellence in Cancer Care
Excellence in Cancer Care remains a funding priority for the Foundation. Cancer continues to be the leading cause of death in Indian River County driving us to ensure care is available to all who need it.
The opening of the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center in late 2015 brought world-class cancer care to Vero Beach, thanks to an outpouring of community support. To meet the community's ongoing need, the cancer center continues to grow its roster of skilled oncologists, add Patient Care Navigators, enhance the menu of ancillary and palliative care services available to patients and caregivers, and help those in need of its Pay It Forward Fund,
