Neurosciences Center of Excellence Campaign

Brain header
Strokes, brain aneurysms, brain and spine cancer and other traumas…each year PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center (PHSW) cares for approximately 2,700 inpatients affected by these life-threatening conditions.  Great physicians and treatment advances like these have proven spectacular in saving lives:

  • Interventional Stroke Program (the only one in Southwest Washington) allows neurologists and neurosurgeons to identify and retrieve blood clots or administer clot-busting medicine for stroke patients
  • Cyberknife technology helps surgeons treat brain tumors previously considered inoperable
  • Telemedicine minimizes geographic challenges by giving physicians immediate, virtual access to patients who, due to their location, would otherwise face life-threatening travel delays

Continuing to provide the best continued and future neurosciences care requires an even higher level of capability and technology and even stronger community support.  The PHSW Foundation is engaged in a $10 million Neurosciences Campaign to advance neurosciences to that next level of excellence.

Three Campaign Phases:

Phase I - The creation of a dedicated Neurosciences Inpatient Unit, the Thomas & Sandra Young Neurosciences Center, on the sixth floor of the Firstenburg Tower  ($3 million fundraising goal achieved!)

Phase II - The creation of the Jay D. Miller Neurosciences Caregiver Education Endowment to provide continuing education to nurses, technicians and neuro caregivers  ($500,000 raised toward $1 million fundraising goal)    DONATE NOW

Phase III - Transforming the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit in the Mother Joseph Building  ($6 million fundraising goal)    DONATE NOW 

 There are many naming opportunities available, and gifts may be made a variety of ways including cash, multi-year pledges, stock/securities, bequests and charitable gift annuities.  Join the campaign for brain and spine excellence today.
