American singer-songwriter Alexa Ray Joel performed at Northwell Health’s first Summer Hamptons Evening (SHE) on Aug. 17 benefiting Northwell’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health. The event was held in Water Mill at the residence of Victoria Moran-Furman, who hosted alongside presenting sponsors Iris and Saul Katz, the benefactors of the Katz Institute for Women’s Health, and celebrity event planner Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events.

More than 300 supporters attended, donating $575,000 to help Northwell pioneer solutions that address women’s specific health needs through individualized, integrated care at locations across the metropolitan area—from Manhattan to Montauk. The evening was emceed by Rosanna Scotto, cohost of Fox 5’s Good Day New York.

Northwell President and CEO Michael Dowling addressed guests and expressed the many ways that the Katz Institute has distinguished itself as a national leader in looking at women’s health differently.

“The only way to ensure that our communities are healthy is to incorporate into everything we do the knowledge that women and men are different down to a cellular level,” he said. “Funds raised directly benefit important research and programs that will advance and continue to transform treatment and care for women.”

Stacey Rosen, senior vice president of women’s health at Northwell, shared the uniqueness of women’s health issues and the disparities women experience in their medical care. “Women are grossly underrepresented in clinical research,” she said. “This means that we make discoveries about prevention, diagnosis and treatment on men and assume the results are the same for women. But at the Katz Institute, we are disrupting this practice. We see women’s health differently and are shaping the future of healthcare for women and their families.”

Additional sponsors for the evening included Premier Sponsor American Securities Foundation/Michael G. Fisch; Champion Sponsors Michael Kors Collection, Lipsay Family Charitable Foundation, and Iris and Michael Smith; Trailblazer Sponsors Christie and Bob Donaldson, Diana and Paul Frank, Wendy Wilshin and Ronald Dickerman, Stephanie and Ian Ginsberg, Elizabeth and Paul Greenbaum, Phyllis and William Mack, Castlerock Asset Management, Paul Hastings LLP, Deborah and Scott Rechler, and Judith and Fred Wilpon.
The Katz Institute for Women’s Health provides an innovative model of care, delivering an integrated approach to women’s health and wellness at every stage of life. Supporters of SHE and the Katz Institute join our effort to “Outpace the Impossible” and become a champion for women.
