UH Physicians & Employees help patients lead better lives

Over the course of the Discover the Difference Physician & Employee Campaign, 5,800 physicians and employees have contributed more than $21 million. We are deeply grateful for this generous support that enhances patient care. Large and small, your gifts add up to a big difference for our patients and their families.

With every issue of UH Voices, we highlight physicians and employees who give back to UH with gifts of any amount. Here is a look back at four different stories of giving with a common goal – helping patients lead better lives.

Tony Marini

In 2015, we put the spotlight on Tony Marini, a nuclear medicine technologist at UH Parma Medical Center and MRI technologist at UH Wellpointe in Broadview Heights. Through basket raffles and donations, Marini established a scholarship fund for radiology students at UH Parma Medical Center.

Bryan Wesolowski

In 2014, we highlighted Bryan Wesolowski, PharmD, MBA, a clinical pharmacist at UH Seidman Cancer Center. Working at UH is a family affair that includes his mom and sister. Wesolowski gives back because he believes in the UH mission – To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.

Debbie Lewis

Debbie Lewis also believes in the UH mission. Her daughter, Emily Lewis, was a patient at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital before she passed away in 2009 at age 12 from kidney cancer. As manager of Strategic Community Initiatives for Institutional Relations & Development, Lewis raises funds for Rainbow every day. She and her husband, John, also give generously to the hospital through a planned gift and through Emily’s Rainbow Fund, established in their daughter’s memory.

William Annable

William Annable, MD, UH Chief Quality Officer, has devoted 45 years and counting to UH and honored one of our own through his generosity. Dr. Annable is the largest contributor to the Fred C. Rothstein, MD, Chief Experience Officer, an endowed position honoring Dr. Rothstein, the immediate past president of UH Cleveland Medical Center and Dr. Annable’s longtime colleague and friend.

As we enter our 151st year, the needs continue. Annual gifts to University Hospitals help sustain our healing work, advanced medical research and superior education for the next generation of physicians.

Thank you for all the ways you give to UH. In service and in philanthropy, you bring the UH mission to life.
