Memorial Hermann Health System, Memorial Hermann Foundation Unveil Newly Renamed Larry D. Johnson Heart & Vascular Institute

Johnson Development Founder Larry Johnson lived a life of philanthropy that made an enduring difference. Today, that legacy continues with an incredible honor.

On March 7, Memorial Hermann Health System and Memorial Hermann Foundation unveiled the newly renamed Larry D. Johnson Heart & Vascular Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center due to a private donation made from the Suzie and Larry Johnson Foundation. The gift supports the health system’s Heart & Vascular Institute and Memorial Hermann Life Flight®, enabling the expansion of highly advanced cardiovascular and trauma care across the Greater Houston community. The announcement coincided with what would have been Larry's 84th birthday, where more than 200 long-standing supporters and friends of Memorial Hermann and Johnson Development gathered at the Institute to honor Larry's life and the enduring impact of his philanthropy.

“For more than 44 years, Larry and I were each other’s confidants, and we championed one another in all aspects of our lives, whether it was for family, business, or charitable causes,” said Suzie Johnson. “We both viewed Memorial Hermann as a community constant – there when times were good and bad, and trusted by our family and Greater Houston to provide high quality and compassionate care. My family and I are thrilled to see the Heart & Vascular Institute’s pioneering work continue to grow with this gift.”

The Larry D. Johnson Heart & Vascular Institute is a state-of-the-art, 230,000-square-foot, eight-story facility in the Texas Medical Center and is nationally recognized by US News & World Report. With a solid record of innovation, outstanding outcomes and exceptional patient care, the Institute consistently receives top rankings as a leader in clinical quality and patient safety.
