Founded in 1899 as a nonprofit hospital, National Jewish Health (NJH) is the No. 1 Respiratory Hospital in the U.S. followed by Mayo Clinic. National Jewish Health today is the only facility in the world dedicated exclusively to groundbreaking medical research and treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders. Patients and families come to National Jewish Health from around the word to receive cutting edge, comprehensive, coordinated care.

NJH thinks outside the box, slows down and really delves deep, has clinical and research expertise for a lifesaving, life changing mission to find a solution. No 10-minute appointments here!

“At National Jewish Health, we have a relentless pursuit for diagnosis and treatment,” said president and CEO Michael Salem, M.D. “What makes us different, makes us special. What we treat are the leading causes of death. We still believe the most important element is time and listening to the patients.”

The annual Beaux Arts Ball, always clever, always opulent fundraiser at Colorado Convention Center’s Hyatt Regency featured shows within the show including a bearded lady, ringmaster, of course and abundant fun cuisine. Spectacular Salads, Captivating Entrees and Ringmaster Desserts graced the dining tables and after-party showcases. Auctioneer Reggie Rivers helped set fundraising records with $760,000 raised for “Fund-A-Need” for life-threatening allergies. $2.3 million was from the 1,100 attendees, six co-chair couples, 42-member executive committee and an enormous list of sponsors. This year’s “The World’s Greatest Showman” was presented by the Morgridge Family Foundation that transforms the community by providing whole-child care at Morgridge Academy for chronically ill children and world-class research and clinical training for physician-scientists through the Morgridge Fellowship Program.
