Philanthropist Larry Ruvo founded Keep Memory Alive (KMA) in 1996 to raise awareness, provide caregiver support, and raise funds for research brain disorders after his own father’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. In 2006, Larry’s passion inspired renowned architect Frank Gehry to design a medical facility to treat neurocognitive disorders in Nevada. The building broke ground on February 9, 2007, was designed in Los Angeles, engineered in Germany, fabricated in China and built in Las Vegas. Construction was a massive, cross continental feat, and the center has become an iconic landmark in Downtown Las Vegas.
Cleveland Clinic Partnership
In 2009, Larry partnered with Cleveland Clinic, perennially named among the nation’s top five hospitals by U.S. News and World Report, and the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health was opened May 21, 2010. Today, there’s no denying that Frank Gehry’s design continually inspires employees, visitors and event guests who are impressed, intrigued, and sometimes speechless— but always engaged. People are eager to learn what the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brian Health is doing to advance diagnosis, care and treatment for these disorders.
