Uday Jani, MD, became the 250th member of Beebe Healthcare’s 1916 Club when the integrative medicine physician joined in late March.

Members are asked to donate $1,916 or more each year to help support the health system’s expanding programs and services. It was established as a leadership giving club to recognize Beebe’s 100th anniversary in 2016.

“We extend a warm thank you to Dr. Jani for his generous support of Beebe, both personally and professionally,” said Judy L. Aliquo, president and CEO, Beebe Medical Foundation. “It is with much gratitude and respect for his work in bringing integrative medicine to the community that we welcome Dr. Jani to the 1916 Club.”

Jani’s focus is treating the whole person, not just the disease. That is the basis that forms the foundation of Shore View Personalized Care, his internal medicine private practice in Milton. He earned a fellowship in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona – recognized as the leading program in the world for this specialty – and offers patients both conventional and alternative therapies to facilitate the body’s healing response.

To further advance this effective, evidence-based approach to care, Jani requested his donation to the 1916 Club be directed toward expansion of integrative medicine offerings at Beebe Healthcare.

Jani’s association with Beebe spans 20 years, during which he served as chair of the mortality review community, chair of the medical department, and director of integrative medicine. Today, he is an active member of Beebe medical staff.

His family has also depended on Beebe, from obstetrics to orthopaedics. “Both my children were born at Beebe, and when my wife needed hip replacement surgery, we knew the care she’d receive here would be outstanding … and our expectations were always exceeded,” said Jani. “As a physician, a husband and father, and a longtime resident of Lewes, I’m deeply appreciative of the outstanding work done every day at Beebe, and its ongoing stewardship of our community’s health.”

Jani said he shares that commitment with passion, inspired by a strong belief in the power of community to heal.

“In integrative medicine, connection to community is considered as influential to wellness as a healthy body, mind, and spirit. I’m proud to support Beebe in its mission to prevent illness and restore optimal health to the community we all cherish,” he said.

As a community-based, nonprofit healthcare system, Beebe Healthcare depends on the generous support of individuals, corporations, businesses and private foundations. All gifts to Beebe Healthcare are welcome and are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
