Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation gives record $25 million gift to Abbott Northwestern
Currently underway is a project demolishing a parking garage to make room for the 10-story expansion of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and of the surgery and critical care services that this gift, the largest in Allina’s history, supports.
A pivot away from medical research
The foundation may end up supporting more hospitals in similar ways to other hospitals in Minnesota and Florida, where Dick Schulze and many of the Schulze Family members live. “He wants to see the positive results from what he gives away in the here and now,” said Mark Dienhart, President & CEO of Schulze’s Foundation. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see these kinds of things continue.”
“Normally we’re not proponents of investing money in hospitals, but I’m a big believer in what’s going on at Abbott Northwestern.”
