Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is an iconic architectural landmark in Las Vegas. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, its unique design and welcoming atmosphere are a tribute to the patients, families and staff who come to the center.
Mr. Gehry wanted to create a place that would be memorable: "The mantra is Keep Memory Alive," he noted. "I'm trying to make a building that people will want to visit, remember, talk about, and enjoy, and ultimately will want to partner with us at the center to help cure brain diseases."
Mr. Gehry acknowledges a personal connection to brain health and preserving memory. The wife and three brothers-in-law of Dr. Milton Wexler, Frank Gehry's longtime analyst and friend, were stricken with Huntington's disease. For roughly 35 years, Mr. Gehry has served on the board of Wexler's Hereditary Disease Foundation. Huntington's disease is now one of the disorders studied at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
