University Hospitals receives $5 million gift for Eye Institute
Date:2/17/2012

CLEVELAND The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation again has demonstrated its commitment to University Hospitals (UH) with a $5 million gift for the Eye Institute. The gift will honor the late Benjamin L. Millikin, MD, husband of Julia Severance and the grandfather of Prentiss Foundation trustee Elisabeth Alexander.

Dr. Millikin was Cleveland's first formally trained ophthalmologist and in 1893 helped found what is known today as the UH Eye Institute. Also, from 1900 to 1912, Dr. Millikin was the dean of the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University.

UH has received more than $50 million from the Prentiss Foundation, making it the largest private foundation donor in the hospital's history.

"The Prentiss Foundation has had an unparalleled impact on University Hospitals, helping our health system grow into a national leader," said Fred C. Rothstein, MD, President of UH Case Medical Center. "We are truly grateful for this latest gift that will help us enhance our ophthalmology services to better serve our patients, and for the Prentiss Foundation's abiding commitment to UH. Its legacy of support for this institution is a testament to their dedication to the health and wellbeing of Clevelanders and the economic health of our region."

The gift will support a variety of programs in the UH Eye Institute, with a focus on the Center for Retina and Macular Disease, a nationally recognized leader in the comprehensive care of patients with diseases affecting the retina (the back of the eye). Under the direction of Dr. Suber S. Huang, this specialty area offers consultation and surgical treatment for a variety of conditions that jeopardize healthy sight.

"Dr. Huang is an inspiring and accomplished leader," said Jonathan H. Lass, MD, Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at UH Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Director of the UH Eye Insti
