Peninsula Hospital Center Receives Annual Donations
At its June Board of Directors meeting, Peninsula Hospital Center accepted generous donations from the American Parkinson Disease Association, the Peninsula Hospital Center Auxiliary and the Peninsula Hospital Center Volunteer Guild.
Joel Gerstel, executive director of APDA, presented the Hospital Center with a check signifying the APDA's ongoing commitment to the Parkinson Disease referral services offered at the hospital. The APDA has, over the past years of active and committed collaboration, donated more than $900,000 to the Hospital Center.
Joyce Silverman, president, and Jack Domfort, vice president, presented a $40,000 check to Peninsula Hospital Center on behalf of the Volunteer Guild. This annual donation is the direct result of the Guild and its very dedicated volunteer members who manage the Gift Shop in the Hospital Center.
The Hospital Center's Auxiliary organization recently donated $15,000 which has been earmarked for the enhancement of the Ambulatory Chemotherapy Unit and was presented at the hospital's June board meeting by its president, Sheila Schwartz.
Gratefully accepting the donations from all three organizations was Robert V. Levine, president and Chief Executive Officer and Joel A. Miele Sr., P.E. chairman, Board of Directors at Peninsula Hospital Center. "Just when one might expect a drop in the philanthropic dollars, these organizations have proven once again, that hard work and dedication to a worthwhile cause, can bring about wonderful results," said Miele as he accepted the donations. "We are so grateful to these organizations for their continued hard work on behalf of the Hospital Center and for their generosity."
