The Queens General Hospital Foundation is dedicated to supporting community health organizations that are committed improving the health of Queens County residents, like the North Queens Medical Centre. The medical centre, which was built in 2000, provides residents of the North Queens region with the medical attention they need, close to home.
“When I first got involved in the North Queens Medical Centre, I quickly learned that the medical centre couldn’t do everything on their own,” said Gil Johnson, the North Queens representative on the QGHF board of directors. “Our work with the Queens General Hospital Foundation is a collaborative effort to ensure that everyone who lives within Queens County can receive the care they need by professionals.”
Since the medical centre was built, the Queens General Hospital Foundation has provided them with financial assistance to cover building costs and renovations, as well as providing them with their support and expertise.
“The foundation has been incredibly supportive to the North Queens Medical Centre,” said Gil. “They are always there to help our medical centre board when it’s needed, whether it be recruitment or retention. The work we’re doing together will continue to make our community a great place to live.”
