NEW YORK – Lenox Hill Hospital’s Autumn Ball Tuesday evening raised $1.6 Million to fund the continuing growth and expansion of the renowned medical institution’s clinical programs that have been benefiting New Yorkers for 157 years. The evening, held at the American Museum of Natural History, also served as a celebration for the many milestones Lenox Hill Hospital continues to achieve across Manhattan. Star of stage, screen and film, Kristin Chenoweth added to the memorable evening with an intimate performance of quintessential New York standards.
“Lenox Hill Hospital has served the people of New York City for nearly 160 years and continues to grow and flourish,” said Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, which owns and operates Lenox Hill Hospital. “The hospital’s dedicated staff of physicians, nurses, administrators and partnering healthcare professionals continue to raise the bar in providing outstanding, compassionate care to countless patients and their families.”
This past year, Lenox Hill expanded its service coverage in Manhattan by moving into Greenwich Village, with the July opening of the first phase of the Lenox Hill HealthPlex. The new complex represents a new model of community-based care that integrates health and wellness services with seamless access to 24-hour emergency care and a full range of medical specialists. The HealthPlex also serves as a receiving facility for the New York City 911 Emergency Medical System. A range of other comprehensive medical services will be added to the six-story building in 2015, including: ambulatory surgery, outpatient rehabilitation, imaging, health and wellness services, medical specialty practices and home care.
Another venerated institution in the city, the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital at 64th Street, also saw continued progress in 2014 as Lenox Hill continues to add and expand ENT and other services, including orthopedic, and head and neck services.
The Lenox Hill Autumn Ball is driven by a dynamic roster of New York City leaders who span across the worlds of medicine, publishing, media, the arts and philanthropy. Serving as the Benefit Committee are Lily & Douglas Band, Jonathan Canno & Pierce Canno Roberts, Susan & Mark Claster, Ellen & Daniel M. Crown, Deborah & Philippe Dauman, Nancy & Robert N. Downey, Victoria & Lloyd Goldman, Diane & Paul B. Guenther, Judith & William O. Hiltz, Nancy & Jeffrey B. Lane, Phyllis & William Mack, Francesca & Richard B. Nye, Tara Kelleher & Roy J. Zuckerberg.
