Peconic Bay Medical Center’s Black & White annual gala at the Westhampton Country Club offered up a big surprise in the middle of festivities September 13 — a generous donation of $10 million to the hospital. The gift, the largest the hospital has received from an individual in its history, was presented by Emilie Roy Corey and her husband, Michael.
“Emilie and Michael Corey are wonderful supporters of Peconic Bay Medical Center and have played a critical role in the hospital through the years,” said Sherry Patterson, chair of the Peconic Bay Medical Center board of directors. “Our efforts to bring world-class patient care to all the residents of the East End are made possible through the philanthropy of our generous donors, such as the Coreys. We are truly grateful for this generous gift.”
Emilie Roy Corey thought the donation was critical for the center.
“It is crucial for Peconic Bay Medical Center to be able to continue its important work here on Long Island’s East End, saving lives and providing state-of-the-art medical treatment each and every day in our community,” she said. “This gift will ensure that the groundbreaking care, resources, and treatment the hospital has earned a reputation for providing will continue both now and into the future.”
