Hundreds of guests attended Parker Jewish’s 2011 gala to welcome new Chairman of the Board Lenny Tanzer, see a film about one of the region’s most comprehensive networks of community health programs and honor Goldman Sachs and Company Vice President, Joseph G. Hall.

“We are deeply honored to have four generations of the Parker family with us this evening,” said Tanzer. “The generosity and involvement of the Parker family has been critical to the growth of the Institute as an international leader in long-term care.”

After informing the audience that, “in the past 24 hours alone, Parker’s continuum of care has served more than 1,500 individuals,” President and CEO Michael N. Rosenblut introduced a short film about the Institute’s community health programs that “extend Parker’s standard of health care excellence into the communities of Long Island and New York City.”

Past Chairman of the Board Jerry Landsberg presented the award to Hall. Landsberg described the accomplished honoree as “a contemporary Renaissance man who, like Parker, finds success by helping others.”
