Cleveland Clinic Social Work Department
Patient Care Funds
The Barbara Leslie Patient Care Fund was established by the Cleveland Clinic
Cancer Center and the Social Work Department in 1996 to provide modest
financial assistance to patients and families. The fund covers medically-related
expenses, such as, transportation to medical appointments, emergency medication,
supplies and equipment, not typically reimbursed by insurance or other
patient care funds.
Patient Care Fund
The Fund is in memorial to Barbara Leslie, an oncology social
worker at the Cleveland Clinic and honors her commitment and dedication
to the patients and families she served.
