It was a packed house for the Trojan Society of Hospitals annual luncheon, where some of Keck Medicine of USC’s leading physicians discussed integrated health and collaborative medical care in a lively panel on Sept. 22. The society helps raise funds for the hospitals on the Health Sciences Campus while acting as ambassadors and volunteers for the medical enterprise.

The society’s president, Carol Mollett, shared plans for the proposed Sky Garden, which would transform part of Keck Hospital’s rooftop into a relaxing and therapeutic sanctuary for patients and their families, as well as Keck Medicine staff. She also spoke about the importance of private philanthropic support to make this vision a reality. Following the luncheon, a number of attendees toured the future site of the Sky Garden.

Event co-host Rod Hanners, COO of Keck Medicine and CEO of Keck Medical Center of USC, spoke about Keck Medicine’s recent accolades and thanked the society for being strong supporters of the medical enterprise. Tom Jackiewicz, MPH, senior vice president and CEO of Keck Medicine, also spoke about Keck Medicine’s commitment to wellness not only for patients but for staff as well.
