CHICAGO -- A $4 million lead gift – the largest single contribution ever made to Chicago’s Sinai Health System – has launched the system’s Campus Redevelopment Capital Campaign. The gift, from Chicago-area businessman and philanthropist Harry Seigle, will support creation of the new Seigle Outpatient Center, on the southeast corner of Ogden and Washtenaw in the city’s Lawndale neighborhood. The project will involve the extensive renovation and retrofitting of the Sinai Community Institute building now on the site.

Design work begins this fall and construction starts in 2014.

“This generous gift will enable Sinai to enhance its outpatient service line capacity in a newly renovated and attractive building to better meet the needs of patients and provide an environment for the efficient delivery of quality care,” said Alan Channing, President and CEO of Sinai Health System. “We are deeply grateful to Harry Seigle for his inspiring leadership and thoughtful generosity.”

Seigle’s gift was made through the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago’s Centennial Campaign, with a designation for Sinai Health System.
