The Eskenazi Health Foundation raises philanthropic support to enable Eskenazi Health to provide quality health care for all without exception. The Eskenazi Health Foundation has raised more than $80 million in support of the new Eskenazi Health campus. Through the continuation of the campaign, the Foundation will serve Eskenazi Health’s mission by helping fund the new Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, which opened on Dec. 7, 2013. 

Sidney and Lois Eskenazi of Indianapolis contributed $40 million to the project’s capital campaign in June 2011, and Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County recognized their gift in naming the new hospital the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital and naming the campus and system Eskenazi Health. The new Eskenazi Health campus opened, and the Wishard Memorial Hospital campus closed, at 7 a.m. on Dec. 7.
