One Family’s Most Momentous Gift in Gratitude for Lifesaving Care

The Israel family (center) is joined by members of their son Jackson’s care team and other Winthrop staff at a recent celebration honoring their generous donation.

How do parents say “thank you” for the lifesaving care that was administered to their child? In the case of Lee and Raquel Israel, the answer was simple – generously give back to the Hospital and staff who helped their son, Jackson, overcome a lengthy battle with pediatric sepsis.

The Israel family’s magnanimous support has enabled Winthrop-University Hospital to obtain a high-fidelity pediatric mannequin for its Simulation Center. This vital piece of medical training equipment simulates real life-threatening scenarios to help advance the Winthrop medical team’s knowledge and expertise in treating patients.

“Team-based simulation training is an integral part of our multi-modal education curriculum for students, residents, physicians, nurses and other clinicians as we continue to strengthen our position as a leader in sepsis education and quality improvement,” said Lyn QuintosAlagheband, MD, Associate Director of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine and Physician Quality Officer at The Children’s Medical Center at Winthrop, and Co-Chair of Winthrop’s Hospital-wide Strike Out Sepsis Campaign.

The Israel family has not only made a tremendous impact at Winthrop through their generous giving, but has been committed to helping the Hospital educate both clinicians and the public about the disease through their participation on the pediatric sepsis multidisciplinary team.

“Family engagement has been and will always be a core value of our team. The Israel family is passionate about helping Winthrop raise the bar on sepsis education so that if other families find themselves in similar situations, they too can have positive outcomes,” added Dr. Quintos.
