From North Shore-LIJ
This past January, North Shore-LIJ lost a very dear 
friend, Frank Feinberg. Mr. Feinberg was a long-time 
benefactor whose dedication and leadership knew no 
boundaries. Frank, along with his wife Mildred, 
transformed many areas in the health system with 
their philanthropy.

If you were to ask the Feinbergs, they would tell you 
that Glen Cove Hospital was their hospital. In 2006, 
thanks to their generosity, the hospital was able to 
modernize the facility with the highest level of quality 
care for critically ill patients. In recognition of the 
Feinberg’s support, the hospital was renamed Glen 
Cove Hospital, the Mildred and Frank Feinberg 

In 2012, the Feinbergs helped to underwrite a unique, first-of-its-kind facility in Bay Shore, New York completely dedicated to the mental and physical well-being of returning service men and women. The Unified Behavioral Health Center for Military Veterans and their Families, operated jointly by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and The Zucker Hillside Hospital, provides critical services and treatments to veterans and their family members. “Too many of our nation’s heroes and their families are struggling in silence. They deserve the best care. The Feinbergs understood the uniqueness of this center and stepped up by helping us to build this facility,” cites Andrew Roberts, director of North Shore-LIJ’s Office of Military and Veterans’ Liaison Services. “They are heroes to North Shore-LIJ.”

In addition, the Feinbergs have helped fund medical research in two areas at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research: CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists Kanti Rai, MD and Nicholas Chiorazzi, MD noted, “We are truly grateful for the support the Feinbergs have shown in the work we are doing with CLL.” When asked about the contributions the Feinbergs have provided in the work being done with Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Peter Davies said, “Because of the support from the Feinbergs, a new initiative in Alzheimer’s research at the Feinstein was undertaken. This is leading to a clearer understanding of the pathways leading to the disease and we are sharing data generated with investigators on a worldwide basis.”

Mr. Feinberg always felt he was born under a lucky star. We were blessed to have had him be our bright, shining star. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the entire Feinberg family including his wife, Mildred, their children, spouses and grandchildren.
