Sara and Chris Connor donated $6.5 million, bringing their total giving to Connor Integrative Health Network at University Hospitals (UH) to $8.5 million. The Connors’ gifts, emphasizing the increasing importance of evidence-based nonpharmacologic therapies for health and wellness, are among the largest in the nation for integrative health.
“We are exceedingly grateful to Sara and Chris for their longstanding support of University Hospitals and for their generous gift to expand the Connor Integrative Health Network,” said Thomas F. Zenty III, CEO of UH. “The Connors recognize the need for approaching health and medicine in a comprehensive and holistic way. We are at a moment of transformation in healthcare and this program is in perfect sync with UH’s overall wellness strategy. We are focused on bringing the highest quality and most comprehensive care to our patients.”
Through advocacy, education and research, the Connor Integrative Health Network is a nationally-recognized leader in efforts to transform the provision of and access to additional forms of healthcare. Integrative medicine – combining traditional medicine with evidence-based nonpharmacologic therapies – is the future of healthcare as patients take greater control of their own mental and physical wellness. It goes beyond the disease management model, extending care to overall health and prevention and empowering patients to partner with their healthcare team to take charge of their well-being.
