Hoops for Health

Royce Joseph, MD, who joins Glen Cove Hospital’s  Family Medicine Residency Program in July, launches a jump shot in the third quarter during a heated basketball game pitting hospital staff members against staffers of the Grenville Boys and Girls Club in Locust Valley.  Coed teams from both organizations recently competed in their annual basketball tournament, with many physicians from the hospital taking the court.  There were many lead changes in the back and forth contest, but the Boys and Girls Club snatched the lead in the final seconds and walked off with a 38-37 win. A highlight of the event was a spirited half time show, which included a check presentation of $1,000 from Glen Cove Hospital to the club to benefit its scholarship fund.  The hospital’s Family Medicine Center leads an adolescent wellness program at the club.  The annual event promotes physical activity and community partnership.
