Current Projects and Fundraising Initiatives
The Broadlawns Medical Center Foundation is committed to raising community awareness and financial support for Broadlawns Medical Center. As the community hospital, we are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable populations and providing access to high quality healthcare to the underserved and at-risk individuals within our community.
The Broadlawns Medical Center Foundation is currently focused on securing funding for two major initiatives that will enhance our facilities and expand our servicing capacity.
Disaster Relief Fund
As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, the Broadlawns medical team quickly mobilized to ensure that we were prepared to attend to the escalating healthcare needs of our community. The Broadlawns Disaster Fund was established to ensure that financial resources are available to offset the purchase of PPE (masks, gowns, face shields) needed to appropriately equip our medical staff. The fund will also support the investment in technology which has allowed us to transition many of our primary care and mental health appointments to virtual care.
Broadlawns Medical Center is expanding its surgery department. Within the enhanced surgical space, Broadlawns is incorporating two additional operating suites and adding a second endoscopy suite. The newly configured surgery department will provide for phase one and phase two recovery areas as well as sixteen private pre-operative suites to accommodate visitors while they wait for loved ones during surgery. The new surgery department will better accommodate patients and visitors in a medically current environment. Construction commenced in the fall of 2020 with an anticipated completion date of fall 2021.

Family Medicine Residency Housing
For alumni of the Broadlawns Family Medicine Residency program, the onsite housing brings back fond memories of friendship, fellowship and support. The apartments were your home during the three years that you spent training at Broadlawns prior to embarking upon your career in medicine.
Broadlawns removed the outdated residency residency housing units that were in dire need of replacement. In August of 2016, Broadlawns Medical Center completed construction of one of two proposed residency apartment buildings. There are fifteen units within the new residency housing building. Fundraising for the second building is still underway as the goal is to once again house all of the residents onsite so that there is ease of access to the medical campus and its emergency department, urgent care clinic and ob/gyn services during residency training.
