Oceanside, NY – South Nassau Communities Hospital’s 30th Annual Golf Outing raised nearly $282,000 in support of South Nassau’s “Emergency Department Expansion Campaign.” The Emergency Department Expansion Campaign is a five-year, $10 million fundraising initiative to ensure state-of-the-art emergency care to the residents of the South Shore. The expansion project will increase the Emergency Department’s square footage from 16,000 to 30,000 square feet, increasing its overall size by 87% and giving it the necessary room to accommodate a projected 70,000 patient visits each year as well as establishing dedicated areas for behavioral health and pediatric emergencies. Aside from raising the most money in its 30-year history, the annual golf outing will be remembered for the hole-in-one recorded by Westbury, NY, resident Mike Ricciardi that earned him $20,000 towards the purchase of a car from Paul Conte Cadillac in Freeport, NY. Rockville Centre Mayor Francis X. Murray was the honoree of the outing, which was held at The Seawane Club in Hewlett Harbor and Inwood Country Club in Inwood. “Mayor Murray and his family have been long-time, loyal supporters of South Nassau’s mission to provide high-quality healthcare services to the residents of Rockville Centre and the South Shore communities,” said South Nassau’s president and CEO, Richard J. Murphy. “We are thankful for his commitment to our mission and for his discerning and courageous leadership on behalf of the residents and business community of Rockville Centre.”
  • A lifelong Rockville Centre resident, Mayor Murray has been an active member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department since 1972, including serving as an EMT. He was a co-chair of the Village’s Environmental and Beautification Committee; Vice President of the RVC Conservancy; and board member of the Friends of Senior Services, Inc. (FOSSI). South Nassau’s Emergency Services Department is the busiest community hospital emergency room in Nassau County, realizing an 8.5 percent increase in patient visits in 2013. Praised for its efficiency and responsiveness to the needs of patients, the department’s staff includes board-certified, residency-trained emergency medicine physicians as well as nurses and physicians' assistants who have been specially-trained in emergency medical care. The department is a New York State Department of Health regional Stroke Center and is southern Nassau County’s only Trauma Level II Center. The department has over 35 large independent treatment bays, specialty treatment areas as well as its own dedicated Computerized Radiology Suite for rapid access for testing and results. Golfers who participated in the 30th South Nassau outing competed for low gross score, low net score, nearest to the pin, longest drive, most accurate drive, and hole-in-one prizes. The afternoon of golf was followed by an evening of fine dining, camaraderie, and fun, including a lavish buffet and raffle prizes ranging from tickets to professional sporting events to foursomes at the area’s most prestigious courses. Designated a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), South Nassau® Communities Hospital is one of the region’s largest hospitals, with 435 beds, more than 900 physicians and 3,000 employees.
