Thanks to a $10 million donation from the Sunderland Foundation, Truman Medical Centers is more than halfway to reaching a fundraising goal to expand its newborn intensive care unit (NICU) on its Hospital Hill campus in Kansas City.

The campaign has a fundraising goal of $18.8 million. The funds will allow the NICU to expand from its current 19 individual isolettes into private rooms for 29 newborns. The funding also will allow Truman to create a private, family birthplace so that all new mothers can have their own rooms.

Upon completion of the campaign, the Hall Family Foundation pledged a $2.5 million dollar gift.

The campaign is being chaired by civic leaders Peggy and Terry Dunn, Leo and Yvette Morton, and Paul and Amy Holewinski. Other lead gifts supporting the campaign have been made by the William T. Kemper Foundation, DST and other donors.
