PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Robert D. and Marcia H. Randall Charitable Trust, champions of community building and youth development, has donated $10 million to support and name the new home for The Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel.
“The mission of the Trust is to improve and enrich the lives of people of the Pacific Northwest by supporting organizations that provide opportunity to at-risk children and the underprivileged,” said Marcia Randall, donor and co-trustee of the trust.
The Randall Charitable Trust’s gift – the largest in the history of Legacy Health, the largest given to a children’s hospital in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and the largest the trust has ever made – is dedicated to the construction, furnishing and equipping of the new home for The Children’s Hospital. The Children’s Hospital will be officially renamed Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel.
The gift was announced by George J. Brown, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Legacy Health. “The Randall Charitable Trust’s incredible generosity will help build our new home for The Children’s Hospital and create a 21st-century facility for our clinicians to provide the best in pediatric care for generations to come,” Dr. Brown said.
Randall spoke about why she and the Trust chose to support the new building for the Randall Children’s Hospital. “My late husband, Robert and I started from humble beginnings and now, thanks to the hard work of everyone at The Randall Group, we are able to help children to 'grow well' and receive the care they need in order to positively move forward in life,” Randall said.
The $30 million fundraising campaign began with an employee effort that raised $2.7 million from Legacy's six hospitals.
"We are grateful for this generous support from our employees; their level of giving served to inspire the Randall Charitable Trust and several other key benefactors," said Maureen Bradley, Legacy Health senior vice president and chief development officer.
