In loving tribute to Dorothy

The Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center at Holy Cross HealthPlex was designed by women, for women, to better address their healthcare needs and to make their experience more pleasant and fulfilling. Thanks to our generous donors Phase 1 of the Center opened in 2010 providing comprehensive women’s services in a healing, serene environment.

Like Phase 1, Phases 2 and 3 (which will include special programming, a medical spa, a meditation chapel, a boutique, a lifestyle center, an education center and a café) of this $15 million, 55,000 square foot state of the art facility will be funded solely through philanthropy. Holy Cross has created the Girlfriend’s Club to help complete the Center and bring the unparalleled expertise, sophisticated technology and compassionate care that set Holy Cross Hospital apart to the women of our community.

With a pledge of $5,000 payable over three years, Girlfriends become lifetime, founding members of the Center, are individually recognized on the Girlfriend’s Club Donor Wall and receive exclusive invitations to Girlfriend’s Club luncheons, parties, educational events and activities. The number of Girlfriends will be capped at 200 creating a “million dollar wall.” Currently there are more than 135! In addition, during the month of May, the Harry T. Mangurian, Jr. Foundation will match your Girlfriend’s Club contribution up to $50,000 with its Dottie’s Mother’s Day Match, in loving tribute to Dorothy “Dottie” Mangurian. Become a Girlfriend today and the impact of your donation will be multiplied through the matching funds!

The Girlfriends are leaving a legacy in women’s healthcare for years to come. That is why some have honored loved ones with a memorial membership. Others have opted to make donations to honor living best friends, daughters, sisters, aunts, cousins and mothers and giving them the Girlfriend title and recognition. To become a Girlfriend or for more details regarding the Girlfriend’s Club or the Women’s Center, please call 954-229-8562 or email donations@holy-cross.com.
