Huntington Subaru donated $35,000 – proceeds from its Share the Love program – to Huntington Hospital’s neurosurgery department.
Subaru’s Share the Love program involves Subaru of America, on behalf of Huntington Subaru, donating up to $250 for every vehicle leased or sold at the Huntington dealership between November 15, 2018 and January 3, 2019.
“This generous donation will help Huntington Hospital’s neurosurgery program to continue to stay on the forefront providing cutting-edge medical care to Suffolk County residents,” said Nick Fitterman, MD, executive director of Huntington Hospital.
The hospital’s neurosurgery department is led by Robert Kerr, MD, chair of neurosurgery. He helped institute the O-arm in 2016, a state-of-the-art imaging system that allows surgeons to precisely see where to place hardware during delicate neurosurgery. Huntington Hospital was the first on Long Island to use this system.
The Subaru Share the Love Program also benefits pediatric cancer research at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park. Grand Prix Subaru recently gave Cohen’s $88,000 for a total of nearly $500,000 to date. In addition, Staten Island University Hospital received nearly $30,000 from the Share the Love program in 2016.
Over the last 20 years, Subaru of America Inc. has donated more than $50 million nationwide, partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment and animal organizations.
