Established for the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC), the Babies Heart Fund (BHF) was founded in 1986 by Robert Roskind, Chairman & Founder of The LCP Group, L.P., along with other parents whose children had a need for advancements in congenital heart disease (CHD). Mr. Roskind served as the original Chairman of the Fund for 14 years at which time his son, Scott Roskind, took over as Co-Chairman with John Minio. Today, the board has 24 members, two co-chairs, and six vice chairs. BHF events include a major gala event with world-renowned celebrities, sold-out golf outings, art auctions, and young professional events.
Initially, BHF paid for training interns and fellows. Today, the Babies Heart Fund is devoted to supporting vital research initiatives to help save and improve the lives of babies and adolescents with congenital heart disease. All donations made to the Babies Heart Fund are used toward funding the innovative research conducted by CUMC physicians and surgeons to benefit pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery patients globally, and to support transitional care programs for young adults who require special cardiac expertise.
– Scott Roskind, Managing Partner
