Local business leader and philanthropist Robert “Bob” Bové has gifted HonorHealth Foundation with $21.5 million to advance care through the Bob Bové Neuroscience Institute at HonorHealth, opening May 2021, and drive innovation at the HonorHealth Research Institute.
Jared Langkilde, Foundation president and CEO, announced the gift, noting that Bové’s donation represents the largest individual commitment in HonorHealth history. His business savvy is a point of pride for Bové, and his pride in community and passion to give back is of equal importance to him.
“I have been fortunate with success, and I feel strongly that you must give back. It just feels right,” Bové notes. He is especially pleased that the facility that will bear his name will be home to leading physicians, including community neurologists and neurosurgeons. “The Institute will be one convenient location that provides integrated care and coordination of services with an innovative approach to patient care.”
The news was welcomes by the physicians and staff working to transform care for patients with neurological condition and researchers seeking new treatment options for patients.
“Every day we see the challenges our patinets and their families face as they deal with life-changing conditions—from brain injuries and tumors to strokes and diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and multiple sclerosis,” says Frederick Marciano, MD, PhD, HonorHealth Neuroscience medical director. “It’s long been our vision to offer them a single location where they can conveniently access comprehensive services and expert care. Mr. Bové’s generous gift helps bring that vision to life.”
