The Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital has relocated to its new home in the Orthopaedic Hospital Institute of the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital.
The opening of the new facility is the result of a strategic alliance between Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital and UCLA that began in 1998, hospital officials said. The partnership will enhance each institution’s capacity to lead advancements in musculoskeletal patient care, research and education throughout the world, officials say.
Complementing this alliance is the Luskins’ $1 million gift to LAOH – the single largest gift made by an individual benefactor during his or her lifetime in the 100-year history of the institution, officials noted.
“Renee and I are deeply gratified to see the impact of our contribution to Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital that has resulted in continued outstanding and patient-centered treatment for all children in need of specialized care by pediatric orthopaedists,” Meyer Luskin said.
Dr. Anthony A. Scaduto, interim president and CEO of LAOH, said, “The opening of the Renee and Meyer Luskin Children’s Clinic of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital coincides with the beginning of our second century of providing outstanding patient care to all children with orthopaedic disease, injuries and disabilities and is at a remarkable time in our history.”
