75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala
Benefiting Miami Jewish Health Systems
Miami Jewish Health Systems, one of the largest providers of healthcare for seniors in the southeast, recently celebrated its 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala. Held at the Douglas Gardens campus and chaired by Ellen and Louis Wolfson, III, it was a night filled with excitement and laughter as Tony Award nominee and four-time Emmy Award winner, Hank Azaria, presided as Master of Ceremonies. At the gala, Miami Jewish Health Systems reminisced on its 75 year history and announced exciting plans for the immediate future.
The biggest news of the night came from President and CEO, Jeffrey P. Freimark, and Vice President of Behavioral Health and Clinical Research, Dr. Marc Agronin. They announced plans for a state-of-the-art facility, unlike any other in the United States, set to enhance how care is provided to seniors, particularly for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Mr. Azaria was named as Honorary Chairman of this project, which will be called the Miami Jewish Empathicare Village.
City of Miami Commissioner, Mr. Marc Sarnoff, on behalf of Mayor Tomás Regalado, also presented Miami Jewish Health Systems with a City of Miami proclamation, acknowledging February 28th as Miami Jewish Health Systems Day.
