Support for the American University of Beirut Medical Center

In 2014, The Levant Foundation and Mr. Jamal Daniel announced a major gift to support the expansion of the medical center at the American University of Beirut (AUB). 

The gift is in support of the AUBMC 2020 Vision, a comprehensive project that will transform the delivery of health and medical care in Lebanon and the region. The AUBMC 2020 Vision initiative includes the construction of new clinical and research facilities, acquisition of state-of-the art equipment for research, diagnostics and treatment, and the ongoing recruitment of leading physicians and specialists from around the world. It is the university’s most ambitious project since the founding of the medical center in 1902.

AUB will name a major new medical building in honor of Mr. Daniel’s parents. Currently under construction, it will be known as the “Halim and Aida Daniel Academic and Clinical Center.” With a projected completion date of 2016, the 14-story academic and clinical center will be the most modern medical building in Lebanon, housing a variety of outpatient centers as well as major academic centers for teaching and clinical research in areas including psychiatry, oncology, ophthalmology, heart and vascular diseases, and otolaryngology. There will also be an outpatient day surgery and a simulation center for education, as well as a ground floor exhibition area and conference room bearing the name Al-Monitor.
