Passion for Healthy Travel Inspires Generous Gift for Travel Medicine Clinic

Roe Green

A generous gift from UH benefactor and
frequent traveler Roe Green (above)
will help keep travelers safe here
and abroad.

Philanthropist Roe Green is a world traveler, visiting more than 160 countries in her lifetime. Her passion for travel has inspired a generous
$5 million gift to University Hospitals that will help keep globe-trotting patients healthy.

Ms. Green’s gift will allow UH’s newly named Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine to provide targeted support for facilities, programs and physician-scientists in travel medicine, including renowned infectious disease specialists Robert Salata, MD and Keith Armitage, MD.

One of the first of its kind in the country, the Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine serves about 4,500 travelers each year through clinics at UH Cleveland Medical Center and UH Chagrin Highlands and Westlake health centers. International travelers – including those bound for developing countries that present special health risks – receive comprehensive preventive care, vaccines and education. UH physicians also help travelers with complex pre-existing conditions to manage their medical needs while abroad. In addition, UH is among the first U.S. providers to care for the special needs of students and children traveling overseas through its child travelers and adoption clinic at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
