Loma Linda University Health officials  are this week celebrating what they say is the largest gift ever bestowed upon a health facility in the Inland Empire.

The $100 million gift from Riverside business leaders Dennis and Carol Troesh puts Loma Linda University Health a significant step closer to its goal of raising $1.2 billion  for a major hospital renovation and expansion program.

The Troesh money will help the Medical Center achieve several goals: building a new 276-bed adult hospital, with 96 of the beds dedicated to intensive care; adding 100 beds to its children's hospital; expanding its neonatal intensive care units;  and building an interdisciplinary research center and a Wholeness Institute "to improve health outcomes for people in the Inland Empire and beyond."

The university hopes to have all of its projects finished by 2020.
