Manmohan Ahuja and Family

MR. Ahuja is a member of the UH (University Hospital) board of trustees, announced his gift $30 million after Northeast Ohio's second-largest health-care system unveiled an ambitious $1.2 billion expansion. The expansion plan includes a new cancer hospital and substantial improvements to neonatal intensive care and emergency departments

University Hospitals today celebrated the largest single donation in its 140-year history, a $30 million gift from Cleveland entrepreneur Monte Ahuja, his wife, Usha, and their family. UH President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas F. Zenty III made the historic announcement to more than 700 community leaders, UH physicians, leaders, donors and Board members at UH’s special holiday celebration at Severance Hall.

“Monte and Usha have generously supported University Hospitals with their time and talents for many years,” said Mr. Zenty. “Through this gift, Monte and Usha are demonstrating not only their dedication to University Hospitals, but to the economic vitality of this region and to maintaining the highest caliber health care for the people of Northeast Ohio.”

“In many ways, my life is an example of the great American dream. I consider myself very fortunate to be so successful in business and to have such a wonderful family, and I want to give back to the community,” said Mr. Ahuja, who is Vice Chairman of the UH Board of Directors and who led the Board task force that developed Vision 2010. “I can think of no better investment than University Hospitals’ Vision 2010. The vision is more than buildings; it is promise to the people of Northeast Ohio – and beyond – that UH is here to serve them for generations to come.”

The Ahuja Medical Center

University Hospital will name the future 200-bed East Side hospital in Beachwood “The Ahuja Medical Center.” Construction of the medical campus is underway at the 53-acre site at the Chagrin Highlands, west of Interstate 271 at the Harvard Road exit – and across the interstate from UH’s existing Chagrin Highlands Health Center. The Ahuja Medical Center will feature a comprehensive array of inpatient and outpatient services ranging from high-tech minimally invasive surgery to leading-edge diagnostics and procedures. Physician offices and facilities for community outreach and education programs will round out the plans. UH hired an internationally known architect who is working with UH leaders and other health care experts to design a revolutionary complex that provides a unique healing environment and is conducive to providing the highest quality of care. The building is being designed with the needs of patients, their families and caregivers in mind. The architects also will utilize environmentally friendly techniques throughout the design.

“The Ahuja Medical Center will be situated within a short drive of the some of the fastest-growing communities in our market and will be convenient to our many current patients in those suburbs. Our strategy is to provide our patients the right care at the right location to meet their individual needs. We are grateful that the Ahujas are supporting that strategy in such a significant way,” said Achilles A. Demetriou, MD, PhD, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of University Hospitals.

“The Ahuja Medical Center is one of the most exciting construction projects being undertaken in health care today – not just in Ohio, but nationally,” said Chris Connor, Chairman of the University Hospitals Board of Directors. “Its impact on health care in this region and nationally will be profound.”

The Ahujas’ gift highlights a year of record donations and has propelled University Hospitals to the most successful year of philanthropy in our history. During 2006, more than $100 million has been donated to UH.

Construction of the full-service hospital will begin next year on 53 acres in Chagrin Highlands, on Interstate 271 at the Harvard Road exit. UH plans to call the hospital The Ahuja (pronounced a-HOO-ja) Medical Center, in honor of the Hunting Valley benefactor, his wife and their family.

The Ahuja Medical Center will incorporate the latest in medical technology, electronic information, patient safety and environmentally responsible design. Every room in the hospital will be private, which will help reduce spread of infection and be more comfortable for patients.

The medical office building will be open in 2008, the ambulatory care facility in 2009 and the hospital in 2010, hospital officials said.

Ahuja gave a short speech at the party after his gift was announced. Standing at the dais with his family, Ahuja described the hardships he faced as a young man looking for steady work.




“Cleveland has given me my life. I can think of no better investment than University Hospitals’ Vision 2010.”
