Plus One

Physician philanthropy

Plus One artwork

Plus One is the philanthropic arm of the Abbott Northwestern Medical Staff. Each year, physicians make charitable gifts to the Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation to support patient care programs, medical education, research and community initiatives.

Plus One reflects a long-standing philanthropic commitment by the medical staff. Since Plus One was founded in 2006, physicians and physician groups have given more than $8 million in charitable donations in support of our patients, their families and our community.

Supporting a variety of programs and priorities

Physicians may choose to support a hospital project or patient care program, or they may make an unrestricted gift to the Plus One Campaign Fund, guided by the priorities of the hospital and medical staff. In the past, Plus One Campaign Fund gifts have supported:

  • Prescription assistance for patients in need
  • Nurses Week
  • Midtown Community Safety Center
  • Phillips and Powderhorn neighborhood youth sports programs
  • College scholarships to South and Roosevelt High School students

Medicine Ball

Thank you to our many generous donors and sponsors for making Medicine Ball 2019 a smashing success. More than $1.2 million was raised for the Abbott Northwestern and Allina Health Research Program.
