About the Ernst Donation

Beaumont received a $3 million gift from Max and Debra Ernst and family to name the Ernst Cardiovascular Center in Memory of Ellen Ernst, Max's late wife. The gift established a dedicated facility at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak for the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with heart and vascular disease. 

The success of the Ernst Cardiovascular Center created a need for expansion. Max and Debra Ernst have increased their support to Beaumont heart and vascular care to a total of $8 million dollars and established the Max & Debra Ernst Center.
