The donations of dedicated national and international philanthropist Robert Toussie and his son, Isaac Toussie, continue to benefit Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
NEW YORK/ Amid one of the worst economies of the last 75 years, many charities are seeing a sharp decline in donations. But need certainly knows no recession, and that’s what makes Isaac and Robert Toussie’s continued support for the Mount Sinai Medical Center so important. Together with his son, Isaac Toussie, the elder Toussie has taken the success he’s enjoyed as one of the most successful lifetime businessmen in New York, and has continued a philanthropic campaign to give back to those in need by donating large monetary sums to several specialty departments at Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Diversified Philanthropy: Robert Toussie Donations Benefit Three Medical Specialties
The donations Robert Toussie and Isaac Toussie have made to the Mount Sinai Medical Center have been nearly as diverse in their beneficiaries as they have been generous in their sums. For more than a decade, the Toussies have helped fund research studies and clinical excellence in the fields of endocrinology, gastroenterology, and immunobiology, which has helped save the lives and improve the quality of life of countless patients.
Bob Toussie’s support for the formation of the Jerome D. Waye Endoscopy Educational Center, which is part of the Dr. Henry D. Janowitz Division of Gastroenterology, has helped Mount Sinai Hospital reach new patients through its improved videoconferencing capabilities. This increased reach for the Educational Center’s gastroenterologists, made possible through Toussie’s continued donations, has helped Mount Sinai have a global impact in the fight against gastroenterological disorders like liver disease, colon fissures, and peptic ulcers. Robert and Isaac Toussie’s continued support for the Mount Sinai Medical Center’s endocrinology and immunobiology departments has helped with the research and treatment of disorders and diseases like diabetes, thyroid cancer, ostepoerosis, AIDS, HIV, and arthritis, among others.
The Mount Sinai Medical Center, one of several hospitals that the Toussie family supports, is comprised of Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, which opened in 1968. The hospital was founded in 1852 and is one of the oldest and largest teaching hospitals in the United States. The venerable hospital also counts Jonas Salk, the inventor of the polio vaccine, among its famous former and current staff members. Last year, U.S. News and World Report ranked Mount Sinai as one of the best hospitals in the country in 11 specialties. PRNewsChannel.com ● A Selig Multimedia, Inc.
