ble in all labs, operating rooms, and patient rooms.
This magnificent gift is a true investment in the future, said Edward D. Miller, M.D., the Frances Watt Baker, M.D., and Lenox D. Baker Jr., M.D., Dean of the Medical Faculty at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine. We can only imagine some of the advances that will occur within this building, and we look forward to the near future, when work on the building is finished and work in the building begins.
Along with the critical work of our physicians, nurses and staff, maintaining our excellence requires 21st century facilities to support them, and it is the generosity of philanthropists such as Sheikh Khalifa that makes such things possible, said Ronald R. Peterson, president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan is credited with guiding the establishment of the United Arab Emirates. He was Ruler of Abu Dhabi, the largest of the seven emirates, and was President of the U.A.E. from 1971 until his death in 2004.
Completion of the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cardiovascular and Critical Care Tower, on which construction began in 2007, is expected in December, 2010. This gift comes at an important time for Johns Hopkins Medicine, said Steven Rum, senior associate vice president for development and alumni relations at Johns Hopkins Medicine. As we revitalize the East Baltimore medical campus, we are grateful for the support and leadership of the President of the UAE.
The gift is the latest in a series of connections between Johns Hopkins and the United Arab Emirates. Last year, for example, Johns Hopkins Medicine began managerial oversight of healthcare systems in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, including those at the prestigious Tawam Hospital.
