University of Michigan Health System Receives $15 Million Gift, The Largest Ever for Women's Health
Date:12/14/2009

Regents will be asked to approve naming the women's hospital -- located within the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Women's Hospital complex -- after Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The University of Michigan Health System has received a $15 million gift from the Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander Foundation, the largest gift ever made to the Health System for women's health. It will support the construction of a new women's hospital.

The gift is being announced today in advance of Thursday's meeting of the U-M Board of Regents. At that meeting, the board will be asked to approve the naming of the U-M Women's Hospital after the late Discount Tire Company co-founder and his late wife.

If approved, the new hospital will be known as the University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital. It is scheduled to open in 2012 as part of the new $754 million C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Women's Hospital complex now under construction.

"My mother would be doing backflips," says Gwen Haggerty, whose mother, Jane Von Voigtlander established the foundation. "It would mean a lot to my mom and it means a lot to me to be able to give this gift to the hospital for women's health and to give to the University of Michigan to support women and their families." Haggerty serves as president of the Foundation, while Steven Bearden serves as director.

"This is an historic capital contribution for women's health at the University of Michigan, and we are grateful to the Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander Foundation for this gift as well as for the Foundation's continued support of our efforts to further medical care, training and research," says U-M President Mary Sue Coleman.

The gift will allow the hospital's women's program to continue expanding its excellent care in key areas including fetal diagnosis and therapy, fetal surgery, and care of high risk
