The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation has donated $3 million to Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Preventive Medicine. Funds will support projects and programs to better understand and advance personal wellness in areas including applied clinical genetics, cardiovascular disease prevention and cognitive disease prevention.
In recognition of this generous donation, the Executive Health Suite lobby at Cleveland Clinic’s Crile Building, on main campus, will be named the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Executive Health Suite.
“This gift will honor the Mandel brothers and the examples they have set for living life well,” says Richard Lang, MD, Department Chair of Preventive Medicine at Cleveland Clinic. “The donation will support and strengthen our continued efforts of helping individuals live long, productive and happy lives.”
Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Preventive Medicine is dedicated to helping patients achieve optimal well-being and a high quality of life. Cleveland Clinic was one of the pioneers of executive health, having launched its first program in the 1940s. The Executive Health Program has transformed the traditional physical into a fully integrated, efficient evaluation for executives and other individuals. This unique program, where the Mandel brothers have all received care, is designed to give people access to preventive services through a focused, personalized experience –ultimately keeping them healthier, longer.
“We are always interested in supporting Cleveland. Institutions like the Cleveland Clinic strengthen Cleveland,” says Morton Mandel, Chairman and CEO of the Mandel Foundation. “Cleveland Clinic continues to be a leader in healthcare, making an impact on the city, the region, the nation and the world. This is an investment in keeping people well so they can enjoy the best quality of life possible.”
