The Stefanski Center for Community Health Education Opens at Cleveland Clinic

New Center in Samson Pavilion helps to address health disparities in
Cleveland communities

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Stefanski Center for Community Health Education opened earlier this
week as a part of the new Samson Pavilion at the Cleveland Clinic. The
Center, funded by the Third Federal Foundation, in partnership with the
Stefanski Family Foundation, is supported by a $5 million donation and
is focused on addressing health disparities and delivering quality
healthcare and outreach to Cleveland neighborhoods.

“The Stefanski family is proud to make this important investment to help
care for Cleveland residents who need it the most,” said Marc A.
Stefanski. “My family and I want to make sure those in financial need
here in Cleveland have open access to world-class care.”

A study several years ago by Cuyahoga County found that residents in the
Hough neighborhood of Cleveland had a life expectancy of 64 years. In
the suburb of Lyndhurst, just several miles away, life expectancy was
88.5 years.

The donation is the largest ever from the Third Federal Foundation, and
supports Stefanski’s continued efforts to provide quality healthcare to
Cleveland and Northeast Ohio residents in need. Stefanski’s wife Rhonda
passed away from pancreatic cancer in November 2014.

Rhonda’s Kiss fundraisers, named for Stefanski’s late wife, have raised
more than $750,000 to help Northeast Ohio residents with cancer who need
non-medical support during the cancer treatment process.
