$10.1 million gift largest in Campaign for Swedish history
The Swedish Medical Center Foundation announced that it is receiving a $10.1 million gift from the estate of Robert and Jean Reid that will support advanced cancer and cardiac care at Swedish.
The gift — the largest made during the current Campaign for Swedish — will establish The Robert and Jean Reid Family Innovative Therapeutics & Research Unit at the Swedish Cancer Institute. The goal of the new unit will be to complement the institute's integrated care with personalized medicine that has the potential to transform detection, diagnosis, treatments and ultimately patient outcomes. The gift will also fund the highest priorities of the Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute.
