The McLaren Greater Lansing Foundation is deeply committed to the community. The foundation is dedicated to making sure every person has equity and access to world-class health care right here in Lansing. The foundation is raising $10 million to ensure a bright future — with funds to help with patient comfort, programming and technology.
And donors are making the difference.
Donors like Dr. Michael R. Hourani and Jane Hourani are two such examples of community members who make the foundation’s mission successful.
As an internist and nephrologist since 1980 and registered nurse of eight years at Ingham Medical Center, now McLaren Greater Lansing, patient care has always been of utmost importance to the Houranis. The two never denied care to anyone. In fact, Dr. Hourani often received referrals of complicated patients from all over the state because of his expertise and incredible patient care. But his kindness extended to more than his patients — he had a great relationship with physicians throughout Michigan as well as with the previous administration of Ingham Medical Center and the McLaren Greater Lansing administration.
During his tenure, Dr. Hourani was instrumental in joining the medical staff of Lansing General with the staff at Ingham Medical Center. He played an integral role in starting the inpatient dialysis center at Ingham Medical Center and in bringing outpatient dialysis centers to Lansing and the surrounding communities.
The Houranis’ passion for providing world-class care has never dulled. The two have been strong supporters of the McLaren Greater Lansing Foundation, giving toward dialysis and nephrology care, nursing education, and patient education. They also have supported the foundation through sponsoring and participating in the Festival of Trees, golf outings and serving on the foundation board.
Most recently, the Hourani family made an incredibly generous donation of $1 million to the foundation’s Campaign for Care. That donation helped make significant progress toward the goal of raising $10 million for the new hospital and the future of health care in the Greater Lansing area. The new McLaren hospital lobby was named in their honor.
“We believe very strongly in supporting our community, and MGLF is one way of doing so. MGL offers much-needed health care services to our community,” Dr. Hourani said. “We have always supported MGLF and will continue to do so because it provides health care support for our community.”
The Houranis believe McLaren Greater Lansing continues to provide a high level of compassionate care to the region; and it’s safe to say the two have an undeniable love for and lifelong connection to the community and the people here as well.
