Loyola's generous benefactors saw what needed to be done and stepped forward. Without them, we never could have made 2011 such a pivotal year. In the past 12 months we began a series of projects, including renovations in our Emergency Department. This simply would not have been possible without the support of the Keeley Family, the McCormick Foundation and Jim and Sally Dowdle. Our new outpatient center, the Loyola Center for Health in Burr Ridge, also could not have opened its doors without the vision and backing of Michael and Katherine Birck. Other projects include the Outpatient Healing Garden, a gift of the family of Anthony Catino. And the Loyola Children's Committee, who understand that our children are our future, have pledged to raise $6 million for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Another project that will truly make a difference is the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing's Center for Collaborative Learning, which broke ground earlier this year.
