Excitement fills the air at “The Home” as Miami Jewish Health Systems gears up to celebrate its 75th anniversary! The 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala will be held on the magnificent Douglas Gardens Campus on Saturday evening, February 28, 2015. MJHS Foundation Chairman Louis Wolfson, III, and his wife Ellen, will serve as Gala Chairs.
With its 75th anniversary rapidly approaching and many exciting projects unfolding, Miami Jewish Health Systems is introducing a new initiative. The “Friends of the Home” donor recognition society has been established to recognize donors and express gratitude to those who have offered generous support of “The Home” through their ongoing and significant gifts.
The Hazel and Irving Cypen Heritage Society was also launched earlier this year, honoring those donors who have included Miami Jewish Health Systems Foundation as a beneficiary in their wills, or those who have made other planned gifts through qualified giving instruments.
As always, philanthropy has an immense impact on The Home’s endeavors. With the support of benefactors this year, MJHS residents were able to visit the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami and attend a Mozart concert at the Adrienne Arsht Center. The Love on Wheels patient transport program also brought residents to social and entertainment gatherings, plus music therapy classes that are available to everyone on campus.
Through the support of generous donors to Miami Jewish Health Systems, an expanded network of services has begun geared toward caregivers and those with memory disorders, such as dementia, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. Support is needed now more than ever, as an estimated 44 million people worldwide are now struggling with these memory disorders.
Through the generosity of donors, MJHS has come a long way from its original 23-bed facility. Miami Jewish Health Systems is now one of the largest and most innovative senior healthcare providers in the Southeast United States. Strong donor commitment is an acknowledgement of these proven achievements, and an investment in the tremendous potential MJHS has to make the world a better place.
