Dr. Politi To Be Honored At Rotacare’s Caregivers’ Ball

rotacarebDr. Victor F. Politi, NuHealth/NUMC’s president/CEO, will be honored at this year’s Rotacare 22nd Caregivers’ Ball. The event will be held on Thursday, April 14, at 6 p.m. at the Cherry Valley Country Club in Garden City.

“For 22 years, RotaCare has served to make Long Island’s poorest families stronger and healthier by assisting with healthcare challenges. The approach of providing primary care to prevent complications, which may require hospitalization and costlier care, has successfully kept patients out of the hospital, minimized use of the ER, and has enhanced medication and treatment compliance. Through generous support and partnership, RotaCare has created a space where people in need can access healthcare in a dignified and respectful setting. This makes a big difference, not only for RotaCare patients, but for the overall health of our communities,” says RotaCare Board President, Dr. Kathleen Lamaute.

cherryvalleycountryclub“I am humbled to be honored by RotaCare and look forward to continuing to support an organization so dedicated to addressing the health care needs of uninsured and vulnerable residents of Nassau County,” said Politi, who will be presented with the Distinguished Community Service Award.

rotacareRotaCare began in 1992 by members of the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club to address the needs of the uninsured in Nassau County. It began very simply when a group of concerned volunteers at the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen in Hempstead recognized that many of the medical needs of the clients they served were not being adequately met by the healthcare system. They responded through the collaborative efforts of the Rotary Club, local healthcare professionals, local residents and Mercy Hospital by operating a weekly “MASH” unit at the soup kitchen. And, RotaCare was born. Space soon became inadequate and in January 2000, RotaCare moved to its own facility in Uniondale. A staff of volunteer doctors, nurses, support staff and translators give selflessly of their time and talent.
