Showing his continued support for the South Nassau Communities Hospital, Jeffrey Feil, a lifelong RVC resident and CEO of a Manhattan real estate development firm, donated $3 million to the hospital’s Cancer Center. Feil’s donation is the largest philanthropic gift the hospital has ever received.
“We understand and have deep appreciation for the role of a community-based healthcare provider,” said Feil in a statement on behalf of his family. “By fulfilling its mission to provide high-quality, standard-setting healthcare services that match the needs of the communities and the medically underserved, South Nassau makes an indelible contribution to the exceptional quality of life enjoyed by residents of the South Shore of Nassau County.”
Feil’s donation will support the growth of the Cancer Center and ensure that patients have access to the most advanced healthcare available. The Feil family has a history of donating to the hospital, including a gift to the Center of Cardiovascular Health in 2008 and another gift to the Cancer Center in 2009. Feil’s late father, Louis Feil, was a member of the hospital’s Presidents Club.
“This gift builds on the Feil family’s legacy of generosity to South Nassau,” said Elizabeth Nardone, vice president of development at South Nassau Communities Hospital. “Mr. Feil believes in the mission of SNCH, which reflects the changing and growing needs of the community, in particular, the underserved.”
To recognize the generosity of the Feil family, the hospital will rename the Cancer Center as, “The Gertrude & Louis Feil Cancer Center at South Nassau Communities Hospital.”
