Prentiss Foundation awards $5 million to University Hospitals

CLEVELAND: The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation has awarded $5 million to University Hospitals of Cleveland to create an inpatient psychiatric unit, including a crisis management team, for children and adolescents at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

The gift is the largest ever awarded by the Prentiss Foundation to the hospital, which -- including the latest gift -- has received over $34 million in Prentiss support in more than 50 years.

Alexander of the Prentiss Foundation. "University Hospitals is recognized as a national leader and a pioneer in child and adolescent behavioral health, and Rainbow is one of the premier children's hospitals in the nation. We believe that by adding an inpatient psychiatric facility, including a crisis team, at Rainbow, to the already nationally acclaimed psychiatry programs at University Hospitals, children and adolescents in Northeast Ohio will finally have easy access to the cutting-edge mental health care that they need and deserve."

"We are deeply honored and grateful for this generous gift from the Prentiss Foundation," says Robert L. Findling, M.D., director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at University Hospitals of Cleveland. "There is a critical shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals in Northeast Ohio. This funding will serve as the catalyst to develop new and crucial psychiatric services for children and teens in our community and beyond.
