Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute Sets Goal
Philanthropy is the crucial link between Cleveland Clinic’s current excellence of care and its future medical breakthroughs and innovative treatments.
The Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute has a new philanthropic goal of raising $10 million per year for the next five years. The priorities for this fundraising are to support educational endowments (urology residency and the Nephrology Fellowship) and three centers: the Center for Clinical Outcomes (research), the Center for Quality Patient Care (information technology, quality assurance and outcomes research), and The Novick Center for Clinical and Translational Research.
The Novick Center is named for the late Dr. Andrew Novick, the pioneering physician who was known worldwide for his contribution to kidney research and renal reconstructive surgery. He joined the staff of Cleveland Clinic in 1977; in 1985, he was appointed Chairman of the Urology Department, later renamed the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute. Dr. Novick died on Oct. 18, 2008. Colleagues say his impact and innovations in kidney surgery will continue long after his death.
