Southside Dedicates Bohlsen Emergency Department

Members of the Bohlsen Family were on hand for the recent dedication of the Bohlsen Emergency Department at Southside Hospital

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.
