New Additions for Suite Beginnings
South Nassau Communities Hospital has once again benefited from the generosity of the Rapaport Family Charitable Trust, which recently donated a gift of $15,000 for the purchase of a new infant transporter for the hospital’s Labor and Delivery Suite.
The new transporter provides a controlled environment to ensure the safety of newborns while they are in transit within the hospital, and it is equipped to supply additional monitoring and support, as needed.
Residents of Rockville Centre whose children were born at South Nassau, the Rapaports have expressed an interest in making gifts for equipment and furnishings that will enhance patients’ comfort and safety.
“We appreciate that the Rapaport Trustees recognize the importance of supporting their local hospital and are grateful for its ongoing support of our mission to provide standard-setting healthcare services to the residents of communities we serve, whenever and wherever it is needed,” said Joseph A. Quagliata, president and CEO of South Nassau.
A previous gift of $10,000 from the Rapaport Family Charitable Trust funded the purchase of fold-out sleeper chairs for patient rooms in the Maternity Services Unit, so that new dads can “room in” with mom and baby, giving parents the ability to experience those precious first hours of their newborn’s life together, as a family.
