Dr. Jeffrey Morken Memorial Fund
Honoring the lasting legacy of a treasured talent
We lost Dr. Jeffrey Morken far too soon. He was a respected member of the Department of Surgery and the Senior Medical Director of the Ambulatory Specialty Care Ring. At Hennepin Healthcare, he is remembered as a phenomenal educator, a superb physician, and a friend to many. He made a lasting impact on our community and was integral in both planning and opening of the Clinic & Specialty Center and in the organizational response to COVID-19.
To honor his extensive professional contributions, the Morken family and Jeff’s Hennepin Healthcare colleagues have designated funds received in memory of Jeff to name an existing space on the 6th Floor of the Clinic & Specialty Center (CSC).
Donations made to the Dr. Jeffrey Morken Memorial Fund will go towards current and future capital improvements of the lobby, pictured below, which overlooks downtown Minneapolis and is an area for patients and their families to wait for care.
Nestled between the Surgery and the GI Labs this lobby is a fitting space to honor Jeff’s legacy and instrumental role in both the Surgery Department and as an organizational leader.
Philanthropic Goal: $100,000
In addition to the campaign goal of $100,000 to name the CSC 6th Floor Lobby in Jeff’s honor, long-term plans are underway to create a memorial Endowed Lectureship to honor Jeff’s contributions as an educator.
Your contribution today will support Jeff’s lasting legacy, at a place he loved and shared his considerable talents. To make an online donation, use the link below and write "Dr. Morken Memorial Fund" in the "Other" designation slot.
