This is your chance to be a hero.
You have the power to help treat heart disease; the power to help damaged lungs breathe again; and the power to provide comfort and relief to those who need it most. By joining the campaign for Memorial, you will make a difference that will be felt for generations, leaving a lasting legacy of world-class health care that will keep the region healthy for decades to come.
The campaign has five main components:
The Heart Center
Heart disease is the leading killer in the United States. Our region suffers from cardiovascular disease at rates that are 15% higher than the national average. With the addition of the new seven-story, 300,000 square feet Heart Center, opening in July 2014, we can provide the entire Southeast with life-changing world-class cardiac care. The Heart Center will include:
The Buz Standefer Lung Center at Memorial
Lung diseases run rampant in the counties surrounding Memorial. There are more than 40,000 individuals with adult asthma, 20,000 with chronic bronchitis and 8,000 with emphysema. With the addition of the new Buz Standefer Lung Center, now receiving patients, we can help everyone breathe easier by providing the best in pulmonary care. The Lung Center includes:
The Joseph H. and Alice E. Davenport Outpatient Infusion Center
Infusion treatment is the delivery of medication into the bloodstream by intravenous means. Many types of chemotherapy drugs are given through infusion. These treatments can last hours, often in environments that don’t allow for much privacy or comfort. With your help, we are providing relief to these patients and their families in the new Infusion Center, a space specifically designed for infusion therapy. The Infusion Center opened in December 2012 and includes:
The Surgery Program
As the area’s premier health care provider, more than 24,000 people a year are turning to Memorial for surgical procedures—and that number is growing fast. To meet the rising needs of the region, the new South Tower was designed to provide our patients with the latest technology and the space to heal in quiet comfort. To that end, the new Surgery Program includes more than 100,000 square feet of new construction and an extensive renovation of the previous space, including:
Faith is the cornerstone of Memorial’s mission, as we believe that comprehensive health care must see to the needs of both the body and the spirit. With your help, we can continue to provide the best in physical and spiritual care with the new Chapel, an all-inclusive space that welcomes all faiths and beliefs. The chapel will feature:
We’re calling all heroes—including you.

Funds are still needed in all areas of the campaign to ensure that we are offering the best facilities for patients throughout the region.
