PORT JEFFERSON, NY – The Mather Hospital Auxiliary presented the hospital with a check for $190,000 towards its pledge to support Mather’s capital building projects.
The Auxiliary presents the hospital with a check each year that reflects its proceeds from the group’s Thrift Shop, Gift Shop, Calendar Raffles, plant and slower sales, and other fundraisers.
Mather’s capital building projects include a new, larger Emergency Department, enhanced surgery center, renovation of the main lobby, an Outpatient Behavioral and Mental Health facility, as well as the Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Labs.
Pictured are Executive Director Kevin McGeachy, JTM Foundation Vice Chairman Donald Lippencott, Auxilian Janice Krass, Auxiliary President Barbara Zinna, and Director of Volunteer Services Keri Dunne.
