(Los Angeles – February 2, 2012) The Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital has relocated to its new home in the Orthopaedic Hospital Institute of Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital. The opening of the new hospital is the result of a strategic alliance between Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital (LAOH) and UCLA that began in 1998. It enhances each institution’s capacity to lead advancements in musculoskeletal patient care, research and education throughout the world. Complementing this alliance is Renee and Meyer Luskin’s extraordinary $1,000,000 gift to LAOH -- the single largest gift made by an individual benefactor during his or her lifetime in the 100-year history of the institution.
“Renee and I are deeply gratified to see the impact of our contribution to Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital that has resulted in continued outstanding and patient-centered treatment for all children in need of specialized care by pediatric orthopaedists. Knowing that children are receiving the best possible care by compassionate clinicians in a child-friendly environment reaffirms our commitment to the inspiring work of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital,” says Meyer Luskin.
“The opening of the Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital coincides with the beginning of our second century of providing outstanding patient care to all children with orthopaedic disease, injuries and disabilities and is at a remarkable time in our history,” says Anthony A. Scaduto, M.D., Interim President and CEO.
Mickie Faris, Vice President of Advancement for LAOH, commented on this transformational gift and the impact on thousands of children. "Through the amazing and visionary support of Renee and Meyer, every child will have access to orthopaedic care and treatment, and will have the opportunity to experience what most children take for granted -- the gift of motion."
Renee and Meyer Luskin are known for their unwavering commitment to children’s health, medical education and scientific research. Residing in Brentwood, California they continue to invest in their community and not only in children’s health and welfare. Both passionate Bruins, a $100 million gift to UCLA announced earlier this year will support the university’s ability to foster meaningful and effective exchange of ideas among scholars, civic leaders and the community. UCLA’s School of Public Affairs was renamed the Meyer and Renee Luskin School of Public affairs in recognition of their overwhelming demonstration of confidence in UCLA as a force for addressing society’s most important challenges.
