Norma Smith and Dr. Steven A. Stuchin honored at 2008 Founders Gala for NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases

Proceeds to Support New Ambulatory Musculoskeletal Center

NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 3, leaders of New York's philanthropic, business, government, medical and civic communities will gather together to honor renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Steven A. Stuchin and long-serving board member and philanthropist Mrs. Norma Smith, at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases' (NYUHJD) 2008 Founders Gala. This event at the Waldorf=Astoria will be emceed by Dr. Max Gomez, Emmy Award-winning Medical Correspondent for WCBS-TV.

Lifestyle icon Martha Stewart, one of Dr. Stuchin's many grateful patients, will salute the doctor in a special video presentation. NYUHJD Board Chair Robin Smith and Robert I. Grossman, the Saul J. Farber Dean and CEO of NYU Langone Medical Center, will share the special privilege of presenting Norma Smith with her award.

"Our honorees have both played critical roles in the transformation of NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases into the most preeminent musculoskeletal healthcare facility in the country," said David A. Dibner, Senior Vice President for NYUHJD Hospital Operations and Musculoskeletal Strategic Area. "Mrs. Smith has been a loyal board member and benefactor since 1983. Her extraordinary generosity has supported numerous NYUHJD initiatives that have enabled the hospital to expand its cutting-edge programs and innovative services."

Mr. Dibner continued, "It is only fitting that Dr. Steven A. Stuchin, one of the hospital's most gifted surgeons, be honored at this year's Gala. While he is renowned for his outstanding expertise in the surgical management of arthritis, he is also lauded for the high level of compassion and care he brings to his work. On behalf of NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, we express our sincerest gratitude."

Proceeds from this year's Gala will raise funds for one of the most exciting and critical ventures for NYUHJD -- the new Ambulatory Musculoskeletal Center at 38th Street. The Ambulatory Musculoskeletal Center will be the first stand-alone orthopaedic facility in the United States to combine superb clinical outpatient care and advanced research at a single point of service. The Center's design will maximize the patient experience through rapid and efficient scheduling, one-stop shopping for all musculoskeletal clinical care and wellness services, and the integration of premium information technology, which will allow data exchange with musculoskeletal experts world-wide.
