The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation has donated $3 million to Cleveland Clinic’s department of preventative medicine in Cleveland. The funds will support projects and programs to better understand and advance personal wellness in areas like applied clinical genetics, cardiovascular disease prevention and cognitive disease prevention.
In recognition of the donation, the executive health suite lobby at Cleveland Clinic’s Crile Building on its main campus was renamed the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Executive Suite.
“This gift will honor the Mandel brothers and the examples they have set for living life well,” said Dr. Richard Lang, department chair of preventive medicine at Cleveland Clinic in a news release. “The donation will support and strengthen our continued efforts of helping individuals live long, productive and happy lives.”
Cleveland Clinic was one of the pioneers of executive health – having its first program launch in the 1940s. Since then, the executive health program has transformed the traditional physical into a fully integrated and efficient evaluation. The program, where the Mandel brothers have all received care, is designed to give people access to preventative services through a focused and personalized experience.
“We are always interested in supporting Cleveland,” Morton Mandel, chairman and CEO of the Mandel Foundation, said in the release. “Institutions like the Cleveland Clinic strengthen Cleveland. 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.”
