People who work in medical practices often encounter patients who are facing the most difficult circumstances imaginable. Many times, their health conditions have caused economic hardship that impacts their entire life, including the ability to pay for life’s necessities, such as housing, utilities and food.

For years, staff members at The Toledo Clinic’s medical practices have responded by raising money among themselves to help needy families pay their non-medical expenses.

Starting in 2018, The Toledo Clinic is building on the generosity of its employees by creating The Toledo Clinic Foundation, which will formalize the giving program while also allowing it a chance to grow.

“By establishing a Foundation, we can go out and seek larger gifts from the philanthropic community in the area,” said Mike D’Eramo, Chief Administrative Officer of The Toledo Clinic. “Those funds, when combined with money we raise internally from our caring and generous physicians and staff, will allow us to help more people.”

The Foundation is in the process of naming a volunteer board as well as establishing guidelines and an application process for people who need assistance.

“Our high quality of care is built on the commitment and generosity of the people who work for us,” said D’Eramo. “The Toledo Clinic Foundation will reflect the very same values.”

The Toledo Clinic is a multi-specialty group practice, consisting of over 270 independent physicians and associated healthcare professionals, practicing in 40 medical and surgical specialties, at more than 60 locations, across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
