It was a night of dining, dancing and donating at Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers as NYU Lutheran Medical Center celebrated its 133rd Annual Dinner Dance on Wednesday, April 6, raising over $800,000 to put toward the expansion of the hospital’s emergency department.
“This has truly been an inspiring night,” NYU Lutheran President Claudia Caine said at the event. “I hope you can see why I believe so strongly that our partnership with NYU Langone has positioned NYU Lutheran to become the hospital of choice for the borough of Brooklyn.”
The evening was well attended, bringing in more than 500 guests, there to applaud this year’s honorees, Claudia Lyon, DO, section chief of family medicine at NYU Lutheran; Carla Solomon, trustee of NYU Langone Health System and member of the NYU Lutheran Advisory Board; and Antonio Magliocco Jr., president of Bulldog Ventures Ltd, all celebrated for their years of dedication to the hospital.
The night also featured a memorable video presentation, highlighting NYU Lutheran’s roots in community-based healthcare and the importance of merging two institutions: NYU and Lutheran Medical Center.
“Make no mistake, this merger is a game changer,” said Robert Grossman, MD, the Saul J. Farber Dean and CEO, NYU Langone Medical Center. “All people—poor, rich, and middle class—deserve the highest quality healthcare and that is what NYU Lutheran will offer.”
