The Long Island Home Hosts 5th Annual Golf Classic & Raises Funds for New Outpatient Child and Adolescent Clinic
(July 12, 2010) On Monday, June 21, 2010 at the Hempstead Golf and Country Club, The Long Island Home hosted its 5th Annual Golf Classic. Mr. Detor, President and CEO, welcomed the opportunity to honor two extraordinary women, Cindy S. Schechter, Rph, Vice President of Client Services for Shore Pharmaceutical Providers, Inc. and Marcia B. Smith, Esq., Partner, at Iseman, Cunningham, Riester & Hyde, LLP. Ms. Schechter has played a critical role in the successful transitioning to contracted pharmacy services and Ms. Smith has been an invaluable asset on a wide range of legal issues. Both of these women have risen to the top of their fields and continuously make a difference in our community.
More than 120 golfers enjoyed this historic course on a beautiful sunny day and over 200 guests attended the dinner. The Long Island Home raised $40,000 to assist in funding the new Outpatient Child and Adolescent Clinic which will help individuals up to l8 years of age and their families. The clinic, located on the grounds of South Oaks Hospital, will serve as home base for clients as well as an anchor for mobile locations. This innovative program will improve access to our child psychiatrists via the internet. Using video conferencing, the doctor will be able to support the therapist in the field. The use of mobile video for psychiatry will be a first in New York State. Mr. Detor stated, "Our program will demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of telemedicine and provide outcomes necessary for the State to consider reimbursing this modality of care. We are excited to offer this valuable program to the community."
Mr. Detor expressed his appreciation to all the guests for their vital support and in particular to Tournament Sponsors, Shore Pharmaceutical Providers, Inc. and Iseman, Cunningham, Riester & Hyde, LLP.
