The Rady Children's Heart Institute in San Diego is the No.

1 pediatric cardiology program on the West Coast, according to US News & World Report, and a $5 million donation will help it stay that way.

The Helen and Will Webster Foundation, founded by the late inventor and entrepreneur Will Webster and his late wife, Helen, "support education and health care causes that benefit young people, with a commitment to investments in technological innovation that advance medicine and improve lives," the foundation says in a statement.

The donation will fund two endowed positions at the Heart Institute: the Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery and the Helen and Will Webster Foundation 3D Innovations Lab Directorship.

The 3D Innovations Lab, which was created with a $1 million gift from the Webster Foundation in 2019, develops 3D technology and software that allow physicians to go from evaluating a patient's anatomy on a screen to holding a physical model in their hands or examining it in a lifelike, simulated environment.

"The progress that has been made over the last several years with the 3D Innovations Labwatching it grow and support other programs at the hospital beyond cardiologyhas been inspiring," Rich Webster, one of Will and Helen's two sons, says in the statement.
