Northwestern Memorial Hospital receives $10 million commitment to support preeminent heart program

Northwestern Memorial Hospital today announced that Neil G. Bluhm, a prominent real estate developer, and his family have committed $10 million to the Northwestern Cardiovascular Institute, which has been renamed the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, which launched in April of 2004 with the arrival of renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Patrick McCarthy, MD, from The Cleveland Clinic, combines the areas of cardiology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, cardiovascular anesthesiology and radiology into one comprehensive cardiac center and aims to put Chicago on the map as home to a world-class comprehensive heart program.

"Neil Bluhm's generosity to our hospital will serve as a greater gift to people in Chicago and beyond who are looking for a premier center to provide state-of-the-art cardiac care," says Gary Mecklenburg, president and chief executive officer, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. "Through Mr. Bluhm's philanthropy, we can continue to build our heart program as a destination for people requiring highly specialized care. In the past, many Chicagoans were leaving the state for their cardiac surgery. Not only are Chicagoans staying here now, we are also seeing people coming to Northwestern Memorial from other states as far away as Florida and California to have cardiac surgeries. That speaks volumes about what the team at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute has accomplished in just nine months."

Neil Bluhm, president of JMB Realty Corp., and principal of Walton Street Capital LLC, is known for his leadership in the real estate community as well as for his commitment in time and support to a number of civic organizations throughout the city. He has been involved with Northwestern Memorial since 1995, and has served as director of the Northwestern Memorial Foundation Board since 2001. He has demonstrated many acts of generosity toward the hospital throughout the past
