Featured Funding Priorities

Women's Health and Maternity Campaign

Over the past 15 years, the Foundation has focused on securing philanthropic support for the most urgent and emergent health concerns facing our community. We’ve addressed the greatest health fears shared by our donors, life-threatening issues such as heart care, cancer care, GI care and most recently stroke care surpassing $11 million against our $10.5 million goal.

Now we have the opportunity to step back and look at a project that has a different but very significant impact on our care for the community — women’s health services, everything from gynecological surgery and emergency to labor and nursery care.

Our Women’s Health and Maternity Unit was last renovated – more than 20 years ago – much has changed in aesthetics, equipment and practice over that time. Despite the outdated surroundings, our Women’s Health and Maternity outcomes are outstanding: Zero maternal mortality for the past 

14 years and the lowest infant mortality rates in 27 years. The surroundings, configuration of rooms, lack of privacy, and lack of space for family involvement present a daily challenge.

The goal of the Foundation’s Women’s Health and Maternity Campaign is to elevate the environment of care within the women’s health unit to match the outstanding quality of care the team delivers every day. Our campaign goal is $13 million. Phase one of our renovations will begin Spring 2022. Learn more or help us reach that mark by giving today.


Cancer Challenge Match – to expand our program and services
at the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center

Bill and Marlynn Scully and Pat and Carol Welsh have issued a challenge to the community of supporters at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital. The Scully and Welsh families have generously pledged to match every dollar raised up to $3 million toward the cancer program expansion. You can help us meet the match by giving today.

Cancer Program Expansion
Under the new leadership and vision of Eleni Tousimis, MD, Medical Director, Scully-Welsh Cancer Center, and with our recent acquisition of the most advanced linear accelerator (LINAC), we are well positioned to expand our cancer services for the benefit of our community. Philanthropic support is crucial to make our vision a reality, which includes:

  • Expanding our medical oncology program, including more infusion bays, the addition of acute infusion services, and broadening of medical and surgical-oncology programs
  • Increased radiation oncology services such as the addition of brachytherapy, intraoperative radiation therapy, and leading-edge equipment for breast cancer patients with left-sided tumors to prevent cardiac side effects
  • Streamlining services in surgical oncology to expedite care and expanding staff to include an oncology nutritionist, oncology physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, and an oncology geneticist

This expansion will also create an opportunity for future recruitment of key leadership – to join Dr. Tousimis – such as a dedicated position for reconstructive oncology surgery, and a key position for breast oncology surgery. Our long-term plans include a free-standing Breast Cancer Center and renovations to our Women’s Imaging Center.
