Current needs

Funds raised by the Foundation are integral to the success of our patient care.

Mental Health & Addiction Campaign

On average, people with serious mental illnesses die 20 years earlier than their peers.  Good mental health is vital for building and sustaining strong communities.  Now more than ever, we need healing spaces to help people feel safe, as well as targeted, innovative programs to meet people where they are at with the care they so desperately need.  As the mental health provider for the East Metro, by transforming United Hospital’s healing spaces, we will serve more people, more effectively and efficiently.  

Together, we will save lives, improve quality of life, and build and enhance an essential resource in our community.

Completed campaigns

The below campaigns have become a reality because of donors like you.

Surgical Oncology Center of Excellence

United Hospital was an early adopter and leader of robotic technology. While there are already da Vinci robots at United Hospital, two additional robots would allow the center to offer an array of advanced treatment options to improve clinical outcomes and promote a high-quality patient experience. Current and anticipated volumes, as well as new capabilities of the robots to perform other surgeries, also increase the need for more robotics.

Total Joint Replacement Center

United Hospital strives to be the preferred destination for anyone who wants to live a full, active life, but has been hindered by joint pain. The Center will provide expanded, comprehensive services. Patients will be treated with innovative tools and patient rooms designed to aid in recovery.

Health care changes so fast, making it important to keep up with all the treatments needed for heart health. Because of you, the Nasseff Heart Center continues to offer the best in heart care through a new, state-of-the-art hybrid surgical suite. The suite is a great addition to advancing our care for cardiovascular conditions.

The hybrid surgical suite blends the capabilities of a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory, where minimally invasive heart procedures are performed, with a traditional surgical suite where open-heart surgeries are performed. The suite, which is large enough for a dozen clinicians to work seamlessly, also features robotic three-dimensional imaging.

United Heart & Vascular Clinic

United Hospital is committed to being a center of vascular solutions and will be comprised of seven program components: cerebral vascular, neuro-interventional, aortic aneurism, peripheral arterial disease and limb preservation, vein clinic, wound clinic and dialysis access.
