The Harrison Memorial Fund was created by Deed of Trust of George L. Harrison on February 24, 1922. Among other things, the Trust provides that income from the Fund should be used for “… the direct benefit of poor patients in ways not ordinarily supplied by usual Hospital funds.” Income from the fund supports prospectively identified therapies for poor patients that are not covered by the patients’ insurers and cannot be covered by their personal financial resources.
