  • In 2006, Winthrop-University Hospital received $35,000 from the Carleigh McCormack Memorial Fund, which was created by Heather and Jim McCormack in memory of their daughter. The donation included approximately $5,000 raised by students at Nassau Community College (NCC) through their annual 5K Run in honor of Carleigh's grandfather, retired NCC economics professor Neil Nugent, and approximately $30,000 raised by the McCormack family at their 2006 Golf Outing. Donations from the Carleigh McCormack Memorial Fund are going toward the development of a cardiopulmonary stress lab for pediatric patients at Winthrop. There, young cardiac patients will be evaluated on state-of-the-art stationary bicycles and treadmills to assess the degree of exercise they can safely do.

    "The McCormacks have been dedicated to helping me secure resources that will improve the lives of children with heart disease," explained Russell Schiff, MD, Director of Ambulatory Pediatric Cardiology at Winthrop. Pictured above are Susan Mitchell, Intramural Director, Nassau Community College, presenting the college's donation to Dr. Schiff.
