$20 million gift to Rush University Medical Center kicks-off campus redevelopment

Rush University Medical Center launched the public phase of its fundraising campaign to completely transform its near West Side campus with the announcement that it has received a $20 million gift from the family of Marvin J. Herb of Barrington, Ill.

The announcement was made on Wednesday evening at a campaign kick-off celebration dinner on Rush's campus by Richard M. Jaffee, a Rush trustee who chairs Rush's capital campaign. The event was held on the site where a new acute care hospital will be built as part of a comprehensive, seven-year redevelopment of the Rush campus. The site is immediately east of Rush's existing Atrium hospital building.

The event was attended by about 600 people, including Mayor Richard M. Daley, other civic leaders, donors, volunteers and friends of Rush.

Marvin J. Herb has been an active member of Rush's board of trustees since 1996. He serves on the board's Facilities Committee, the Rush University Board of Overseers, and on the Leadership Committee for the Rush Heart and Vascular Institute. The gift is from the Herb family, including his wife Judy and two sons Jon and Tom, and Tom's wife, Wendy. Herb is chairman of Herbco, LLC. Until 2001, he was the owner, chairman and CEO of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Chicago, which was the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the country with bottling operations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, New York, and Pennsylvania, before he sold the company.

"Rush has a vision for health care that combines compassionate, skilled doctors and other caregivers with excellent facilities and innovative technology, all designed around patients and their families," said Herb. "Medicine is changing, and Rush has a plan that will take advantage of what is new and what is around the corner in clinical care, research and medical education."

"The Herb Family gift is a truly historic and remarkable commitment to Rush," said Dr. Larry J. Goodman, president and CEO of Ru
