Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation held its 2018 Gala fundraising dinner on October 18 in the Grand Ballroom of the Queens Museum.
Celebrating the institute’s 111-year anniversary, the event also honored Carrier Corporation, one of Parker’s long-time strategic partners.
Built on Willis Carrier’s invention of modern air-conditioning in 1902, Carrier today is a world leader in heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions.
“Our partnership with Carrier has made it possible to pursue an unwavering commitment to deliver superior patient care in a warm and supportive environment, which has been the Parker mantra since our 1907 founding,” said Parker chairman Peter Seideman.
Parker is the region’s leading provider of short term rehabilitation and long term care. At the forefront of innovation in patient-centered health care and new technology, the Institute is a leader in teaching and geriatric research.
Parker features round-the-clock clinical teams, and is nationally renowned as a Skilled Nursing Facility, as well as a provider of community-based health care, encompassing Social Adult Day Care, Home Health Care and a Hospice Program.
“The needs of our senior population – the nation’s largest – makes your support more critical than ever,” Parker CEO and president Michael Rosenblut told the crowd of 300. “The support of the many here tonight helps strengthen our endowment, which will benefit Parker’s patients and residents for decades to come.”
