Glicks’ Gift to MetroHealth Makes History
JoAnn and Bob Glick are investing $42 million in The MetroHealth System, by far the largest gift in the institution’s 183-year history.
In honor of the Glicks’ powerful philanthropic statement, the new hospital building at MetroHealth’s main campus will be named The MetroHealth Glick Center. None of the gift is being used for construction of the building.
The donation, announced on December 1, will be used to create two funds:
The JoAnn and Bob Glick Fund for Healthy Communities will support and nurture programs that promote the health and well-being of the underserved in Greater Cleveland with a focus on programs that address the needs of women and children.
The JoAnn Zlotnick Glick Endowed Fund in Community Health Nursing will recognize and support the role of nurses as leaders in improving the health and health care of the underserved in Greater Cleveland. The endowment, established at MetroHealth, will also support a professorship in Case Western Reserve University’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
“I’d like our gift to change the dynamics of health care in our community,” JoAnn says. “We need a strong Cleveland, with healthy children and families. That’s our passion, and it’s MetroHealth’s mission.”Read more about the Glicks' impact on MetroHealth
