NSU Receives $200 Million Commitment from Patel Family Foundation

See our news release or watch our press conference snapshot to learn more about this transformational gift.

It is, quite simply, the largest gift in Nova Southeastern University’s history. This philanthropic gift is from Tampa-area cardiologist, entrepreneur, community leader and philanthropist Dr. Kiran C. Patel and his wife, pediatrician Dr. Pallavi Patel. The commitment will significantly expand NSU’s programs in osteopathic medicine and health care sciences. The Patels hope to help advance human health care in Florida, across the country and in multi-cultural communities here and abroad. Their priority, which aligns with that of NSU’s Health Professions Division, is on putting the “patient first” and integrating medical and health care expertise.
