Harold C. Schott Foundation supports expansion of brain health services
Lakewood Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic hospital, has received a $1 million donation from The Harold C. Schott Foundation to expand and improve neurological and geriatric services focused on brain health.
The gift establishes The Harold C. Schott Pavilion for Geriatric Neurological Health.
Jan Murphy, president of Lakewood Hospital, lauds the foundation’s “unwavering commitment to the health and wellness in our community.” Thanks to the gift, “we will now have additional opportunities to enhance the high quality care already provided in a state of the art environment through our neurological and geriatric services,” she says.
Philanthropist Harold C. Schott established the foundation in 1959 for the purpose of funding grants toward the support of healthcare, spiritual and educational institutions for the betterment of mankind.
The Lakewood Hospital expansion is part of the hospital’s Vision for Tomorrow plan to meet the evolving needs of the community and to improve the patient experience. The plan places a particular focus on enhancing and integrating the hospital’s SeniorCare Services and Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute at Lakewood Hospital.
The gift will allow the hospital to increase its capacity to serve seniors in the community and to provide specialized education and resources about brain health for patients and their families. Ultimately, it will allow Lakewood Hospital to expand services focused on the health and well-being of caregivers, who often bear a tremendous emotional and psychological burden.
In an effort to address this dramatic and increasing need, the Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute at Lakewood Hospital offers patients and families care for the full range of neurological problems with a specialized focus on diseases related to aging such as dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
