Proceeds from the Doctors’ Ball support the Jewish Hospital & St, Mary’s Foundation. The Foundation invests in outstanding patient care facilities and services, the education of health caregivers, advanced clinical research and improved access to quality medical care. 
In late 2012, the Foundation granted more than $18 million, the largest grants in its history. The funding ranged from $500,000 to make the Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace more kid-friendly to a $5 million investment to create a hybrid operating room and Resuscitation Center at Jewish Hospital. The Resuscitation Center, the first in Kentucky, allows for new, cutting-edge treatments such as the use of hypothermia therapy for some patients in cardiac arrest, a treatment endorsed but The American Heart Association.
