Ann Barelman Ross, B.S.N. and Dennis Ross, M.D.

Ann Barelman Ross, BSN and Dennis Ross, MDDr. Dennis Ross and Ann Barelman Ross may no longer live in Nebraska, but the couple continues to hold a connection to the state through their generous philanthropy.

Dennis, a successful nephrologist and entrepreneur, and Ann, a retired nurse and homemaker, have resided in Wichita, Kan., for more than 30 years. As Nebraska natives and graduates of the University of Nebraska, they felt compelled to support the institution where they felt they had received an excellent education.

The couple has made generous gifts to their church, the arts and health care education in both Kansas and Nebraska. They credit their faith for providing them with the resources that have allowed them to support these worthy causes.

UNMC gratefully acknowledges the Rosses with the creation of the Ann Barelman Ross & Dr. Dennis Ross ICU Simulation Laboratory on the center’s third level.
