Members of the Bohlsen Family were on hand for the recent dedication of the Bohlsen Emergency Department (ED) at Southside Hospital. As leading philanthropists and long-time supporters of Suffolk’s newest tertiary level-hospital, the Bohlsen family has provided critical support for Southside’s ongoing expansion of programs and services since 2003. The family’s most recent gift supports Southside Hospital’s plans to create a new and expanded Emergency Department. Demands on the ED have grown far beyond expectations. Last year alone, there were nearly 70,000 emergency visits within a space originally designed for 18,000, making it one of the busiest in Suffolk County. Among those participating in the dedication ceremony were, from left, back row: Kurt, Michael, John and Linda Bohlsen with North Shore-LIJ President and CEO Michael Dowling. Hannah Bohlsen is in the front row.
