"To see something like this is remarkable in our hometown. And at this university. It's really thrilling. I'm pleased to have played a small part in the funding for this. And I want to tell you, Laman, and the whole team how extraordinary it is that you're putting us on the nation's map."

Jerry Abramson, Louisville Metro Mayor

"Without the University of Louisville's commitment, without Jewish Hosptial's financial commitment we wouldn't be here today. Without the leadership of people like Laman Gray and those who work in this field. So once again lots of people came together to make a significance in our hometown and to give us a chance to take that next step forward to make Louisville an even better place."

Robert L. Shircliffe, President/CEO, Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare

"I really need to thank Dr. Ramsey and Larry Cook. We enjoy the partnerships we have with the university."

Dr. Ramsey continues

"We at the University of Louisville are reaffirming our commitment to this community and state. As Bob said, heart disease is the number one killer and there's a higher incidence of it in Kentucky. We will make a difference."
