Sutter Health CPMC's Heart and Vascular Center treats more cardiology patients than any other hospital in San Francisco. That made it the perfect place for well-known local philanthropists Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem to show their love for their city by investing $5 million in cardiology fellowships at CPMC. When fully endowed, their visionary philanthropic partnership will expand a highly regarded three-year program so that exceptionally bright young cardiology fellows will receive elite cardiac training and financial support every year at CPMC. This will include the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Cardiology Fellowship Lecture Series, which will feature high-profile local, national and international specialists teaching in a variety of settings.
Their gift also names what will undoubtedly be an extraordinarily busy Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Emergency Department at CPMC’s new Van Ness Campus when it opens in early 2019. The department will exceed 16,500 square feet in size and handle tens of thousands of cases annually, many of a life-and-death nature.
