21st Century Campaign initiated IRMC's continuing transformation

In 2003, the Foundation embarked on what ultimately would become The 21st Century Campaign for Indian River Medical Center. Inspiration for the $50 million initiative came from a vision to: expand and modernize IRMC; serve the healthcare needs of a growing community, county and region; and transform and establish IRMC as a world-class medical center.

Phase I: The Emergency Services Pavilion with a goal of $15 million. The campaign began in 2003 fully funding the new Emergency Department which opened in 2005.

Phase II: The Heart Center and Cardiovascular Surgery Program with a goal of $15 million -- now the Welsh Heart Center -- was fully funded and opened in late 2006.

Phase III: The Post Anesthesia Care and Surgical Intensive Care Units with a combined goal of $15 million. Fully funded by philanthropy, these units opened in 2013 as the Waxlax Recovery Room and Sheridan Intensive Care Unit, respectively.

Phase IV: The Patient Care Services Pavilion with a goal of $5 million. Funding completed The 21st Century Campaign for Indian River Medical Center, with the new pavilion opeining in 2013.

In total, $52 million was generously contributed by the community adding 60,000 square feet of new space to IRMC. This initiative launched the transformation of our local hospital into a world-class regional medical center and began a new chapter in philanthropy for both the Foundation and the community as a whole.
