FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Emergency Services to benefit from Greenwich Hospital’s “Treasure” gala
Greenwich, CT (July 18, 2018) – Greenwich Hospital will hold its annual gala fundraiser on Saturday, October 20 at Greenwich Country Club at 6:30 pm to support emergency services. Last year, the Emergency Department (ED) received visits from 39,000 patients, 25 percent of whom were children.
“Most people visit the Emergency Department at least once in a lifetime either for themselves or for a loved one,” said Norman G. Roth, president and chief executive officer. “Community support of this benefit helps provide expert and compassionate emergency care to the residents of lower Fairfield and Westchester counties 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
Greenwich resident, Karen Rubin, is chairing the fundraiser. “Having a well-equipped, state-of-the-art emergency room with experienced, skilled and highly-trained staff is vital to the well-being of our residents and visitors,” she said. “As gala chair, I hope that the community will join us in honoring those that have devoted their time and support through the years to the treasure that is Greenwich Hospital.”
The Bennett and Kanarek families, the Greenwich Hospital Auxiliary and the O’Malley family will be honored for their volunteerism, leadership and philanthropic engagement in support of Greenwich Hospital. We will celebrate the treasure that is Greenwich Hospital within the community and the treasures that are these honorees, whose steadfast support through the years makes the hospital’s work possible. Guests will enjoy a festive evening of celebration of Greenwich Hospital past achievements and future vision inclusive of a silent and live auction, dinner, and dancing.
Comprehensive emergency care
Greenwich Hospital’s newly renovated Emergency Department is staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners trained to handle medical conditions from stroke and heart attacks to broken bones and sprains. Advanced CT scan and radiology technology are embedded in the ED, providing fast, comprehensive diagnostic services all in one place. Experts to provide specialized medical services, such as primary angioplasty and emergency surgical care, are available at a moment’s notice. Within the last year the ED has enhanced services by bringing Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) pediatric emergency medicine specialists to care for children in the ED, offering the community the most advanced pediatric emergency services in the region. This will be complemented by the expanded services of Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital Pediatric Specialty Center being relocated to 500 West Putnam Avenue this fall.
Underwriting, sponsorships and magazine advertising opportunities are available at various levels for the October 20 gala. We invite our extended community to join us in this important celebration.
