Eisenhower was founded 40 years ago by a special group of people who saw the need for a top quality hospital in the center of the Valley. Now a fully integrated Medical Center, Eisenhower is being carried forward by a new generation of philanthropists who are making its vision of becoming a Teaching Hospital a reality.
Jackie Autry “For years, Eisenhower has provided the very finest health care to our community…I wouldn’t choose any other hospital for my care. We have been talking about becoming a Teaching Hospital for a long time and now I am excited to help make this a reality, because attracting top young minds to our Valley to practice medicine benefits everyone.”
John and Anne Marion “For some time now, we have watched Eisenhower develop into one of the finest health care facilities in the nation. We hope that everyone will see the tremendous value as Eisenhower establishes the next level of clinical excellence through its new School of Graduate Medical Education, which promises to attract the best and the brightest.”
Mary Sue and Mike Shannon “We feel honored to be a part of such an historic undertaking at Eisenhower Medical Center. I think we are most excited about helping make the School of Graduate Medical Education a reality because we know that when residents finish their clinical experience here they are prone to make this their home. In addition, by helping Eisenhower become a world class medical destination, we hope many more people will choose to move to the Valley.”
Helene Galen “There are few things as exciting as supporting something you love – and I love Eisenhower and USC. When I learned that both of these great institutions were going to become partners in helping form a School of Graduate Medical Education, I said you will have my full support. This teaching hospital will give us access to the energy and brilliance of young minds working with experienced mentors. I am so proud to be a part of helping make this happen.”
Helen and Alan Greene “We are indeed very fortunate that our community has Eisenhower Medical Center to serve our growing health care needs with excellence. As a Teaching Hospital, the quality of care at Eisenhower will be enhanced even further, as well as its stature as a center of excellence. We are very proud to support this initiative — the School of Graduate Medical Education that will train new internal medicine and family practice physicians which are sorely needed in the Valley."
Joel Smilow “I am proud to support Eisenhower Medical Center in conjunction with the launching of its very important primary care resident training program. I believe our community will get many benefits from its new Graduate Medical Education programs and I am a strong rooter for their success.”
Lois Horvitz “Frequently, the quality of care can improve if there are medical students and interns going on rounds with the physicians and discussing patients’ cases among themselves and with the doctors. There will be more people thinking about patients’ cases, more people available in clinics and emergency rooms, and more people in the community, adding additional vibrancy to it.”
Sam and Ann Ginn “We are familiar with the benefits of teaching hospitals, which is one of the reasons we are supporting Eisenhower in this new pursuit. We can only imagine the years of preparation it has taken, but with their recent national accreditation, they’re moving forward at a rapid pace. We encourage everyone to join us and get involved at some level of support.”
RD and Joan Dale Hubbard “We are long-time supporters of Eisenhower Medical Center because their vision is so expansive and so relevant to the needs of this Valley. We are particularly enthusiastic about the new Graduate Medical Education programs and what that will mean for Eisenhower in their continual pursuit of clinical excellence. The best thing is that we all benefit.”
Dr. Marie Pinizzotto and Carol Ammon “Eisenhower is already known for its clinical excellence. Speaking from our perspective, as an MD and a health care industry leader, Eisenhower becoming a Teaching Hospital will further enhance the centers of excellence. Residency programs raise the level of care for the patients as well as keeping the attending staff more engaged and academically current. We are fully behind this effort because we have experienced first hand the benefits for patients, physicians, and the culture of a medical center, and seen how important top rate medical education is to maintaining world-class health care.”
The Late Ambassador Charles H. Price, II and Mrs. Carol S. Price “From the early days of the hospital’s founding, our family has been involved with helping Eisenhower reach major milestones in its development. Becoming a teaching hospital may represent the most important milestone to date — world-class physicians practicing world-class medicine.”
