Revlon cosmetics mogul donates $50 million to New York hospital and medical college

Revlon Inc. cosmetics magnate Ronald O. Perelman has donated $50 million (euro33 million) to enhance heart care and reproductive medicine research at a Manhattan hospital and affiliated medical college.
The gift to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College will establish the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Care Institute. It also will support research and clinical care at the newly named Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The gift was announced Thursday.
Perelman is chairman and chief executive officer of MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc., the majority shareholder of Revlon cosmetics. He is on the hospital's board of trustees and the college's Board of Overseers.
Cohen, Perelman's ex-wife, was a newspaper gossip columnist and television entertainment correspondent. After her death from ovarian cancer last summer, Perelman called Cohen "a remarkable, dynamic woman, a terrific mother and my best friend."
The new Perelman heart institute is billed as a "medical town square," with a resource center focusing on heart disease, especially in women.
