spital's Lung Cancer Center. He has also supported rehabilitation medicine and the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, as well as urological fellows at Weill Cornell Medical College. Mr. Stanton joined the board of New York Hospital in 1983. And in the decade since the completion of the merger with The Presbyterian Hospital, he has been an active member of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Board of Trustees.

"NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is an enormous asset to the greater New York community with its outstanding staff and leadership," says Mr. Stanton. "It is a pleasure to help it carry out its mission by supporting the clinical cancer program. I hope that this contribution will encourage others to offer their financial support to the Hospital as well."

"A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating for patients and their families. This remarkable gift will help our Hospital keep its promise to provide the best available treatments in a comforting and compassionate environment," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "While the number of Americans dying from cancer has started to decline, there remains much more work to be done, and NewYork-Presbyterian will not stop fighting the war against cancer until it is won."

Mr. Stanton is the founder and chairman of Transammonia Inc. The company trades, distributes and transports fertilizer materials, liquefied petroleum gases and petrochemicals. Mr. Stanton has generously supported numerous educational and cultural organizations. In 1982, he received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Yeshiva University.
