“Like other philanthropists, John plays a key role in supporting several worthy organizations through his tireless volunteer efforts and generous donations. But at his core, John is a true visionary and leader that has put these intangibles to work in creating a brighter future for Palisades Medical Center and our local community,” said Bruce J. Markowitz, President and CEO of Palisades Medical Center.
“John is humble about his gift giving so we had to surprise him with this honor,” said Joseph Burt, Executive Director of the Foundation. “He gets greater satisfaction in seeing how his contributions help our patients and hopes that his generosity inspires others to give.”
