The NuHealth Foundation Annual Heroes Gala will be held on Wednesday, October 26th at 6:00pm at the beautiful Oheka Castle in Huntington, NY.

The “2011 Heroes in Health Gala” will celebrate the staff, patients and recent accomplishments throughout the NuHealth System.

Deidra Parrish Williams, NuHealth Foundation’s executive director says, “it is important for us to celebrate our accomplishments and introduce more Long Islanders to the vital role that NuHealth plays. Our gala gives us that opportunity.”
The NuHealth System includes Nassau University Medical Center(NUMC), A. Holly Patterson Extended Care, and a network of Family Health Centers.  In the last couple of months, NuHealth opened a sophisticated new Emergency Department, arguably the most advanced on Long Island.  A new state of the art amphitheatre was unveiled, providing residents a modern, well-appointed space for ongoing training.  

The Bariatric Department at NUMC earned Center of Excellence status and three of NuHealth’s family HealthCenters received the highest designation possible for their standards of care.  Additionally, modernization efforts have breathed new life throughout the campus.

“The NuHealth System’s impact on the Long Island region is immense, from economic development to health care. We are working to get more people and businesses supporting its future,” said chairman of  NuHealth Foundation’s Board of Directors, Paul Tonna.

The NuHealth Foundation was part of NuHealth System CEO/President Arthur Gianelli’s vision to ensure that NuHealth is well positioned to provide its patients, including the region’s most vulnerable populations, the best care possible. He said, “more and more, philanthropy is a key component for any viable health care institution. The patients we serve deserve the support of this community.”
