  • United Hebrew of New Rochelle will honor WCA President & CEO, William M. Mooney, Jr., at its annual Gala Dinner Dance on September 29. Mr. Mooney was selected because of his leadership at the WCA, which established the WCA Healthcare Consortium, an initiative that keeps those in the burgeoning healthcare sector abreast of changes brought on by technology, healthcare reform, and changing demographics, according to United Hebrew CEO, Rita Mabli.

    The Consortium, for which Ms. Mabli serves as co-chair, offers a unique opportunity for members to share information and to work more collaboratively by better understanding each others’ services and needs. Experts view the work of the Consortium as a potential national model for how a community can join forces to plan for the future. United Hebrew is among more than 50 active members in the group representing the healthcare, business, academic and insurance sectors. 

    At the event, United Hebrew will celebrate its 97th anniversary and will recognize two additional prominent individuals who support the organization’s mission and value to the community: Michael Rosenblum, RPh, Vice President of Client Management for PharmScript, will be honored, and Malcolm Lazarus, a 34-year member of the United Hebrew Board of Directors, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

    “The support we receive from these outstanding individuals and organizations allows us to provide the highest quality of care to more than 1,000 residents and clients every day,” says Rita Mabli, President and CEO of United Hebrew. “Each of these honorees helps in his own way by plugging us into the healthcare and business communities, making sure our residents get the medications they need when they need them, and helping to direct our growth over the decades.”

    The Gala Dinner Dance takes place on September 29 at Glen Island Harbour Club, overlooking the Long Island Sound, and begins with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. Dinner, dancing, and entertainment will follow at 7:30 p.m. For ticket information or sponsorship opportunities, visit the event page on uhgc.org, or contact Grace Ferri, Vice President of Development & Marketing at United Hebrew, 914.632.2804 x1190 or gferri@uhgc.org.

    The Gala Dinner Dance is a key fundraiser for United Hebrew, a 7.5-acre campus of comprehensive care in New Rochelle that offers a range of services in a skilled nursing facility, assisted living homes, dementia care and home health services. Proceeds will enhance United Hebrew residents’ lives by funding life-enriching activities, therapies, and programs that foster a meaningful lifestyle across the entire campus.
