As Beth Israel President Dr. Harris Nagler and his wife, Freema, greeted guests at the 2011 Second Century Ball, the warmth among colleagues in whose hands lives are held was evident. The 2011 event, which honored Lawrence S. Huntington, Chairman Emeritus and Trustee of Continuum Health Partners and former President and CEO of the Fiduciary Trust Company International, was attended by over 1000 guests who gathered to celebrate at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The evening raised more than $2 million.

Lawrence S. Huntington has worked with CHP and its predecessors for over four decades.  His work has been integral to the building of the CHP Partnership. Said current Board Chairman Steven Hochberg “Larry Huntington’s wisdom and guidance is woven into the very fabric that the Continuum Hospital network is made of.  He is a rich part of its history and has helped shape its future.”

Continuum Health Partners, Inc., a partnership formed in 1997 among Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke’s Hospital, and Roosevelt Hospital is a major source of integrated health services in the New York City metropolitan region. The addition of The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary to the Partnership in 1999 further enhanced the group’s resources.

Trustee Morgan Miller and his wife, Marjorie, chaired the 2011 event.

  • THIS IS NOT BETH ISRAEL HOSPITAL THAT I KNEW WHEN THERE WAS A DOCTOR A REAL DOCTOR BY THE NAME OF DR. BERNARD KABAKOW. FIFTY YEARS AGO. HE WAS A DOCTOR, NOT A FAKE DOCTOR, LIKE YOU HAVE NOW. BARELY ABLE TO SPEAK ENGLISH, AND IF YOU ARE OF THE JEWISH FAITH (A HEBREW PERSON) THEY WILL JUST LAUGH IN YOUR FACE. YOU ALL KNOW WHY I MARCH 2012 ISRAEL WAS SUED FOR $15 MILLON DOLLARS.

    HAVING A PATIENT IN THIS HOSPITAL, I SEE THE RACISM AND ANTI-SEMITISM ALL AROUND ME. I AM VERY WELL EDUCATED, AND SEE WHAT THIS HOSPITAL THAT USE THE NAME OF OUR COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST (ISRAEL) YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED. THIS IS NOT BETH ISRAEL……THIS NAME SHOULD BE CHANGED TO HOSPITAL (NOT BETH ISRAEL)

    YOUR STAFF IS RUDE, CORRUPT, AND DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, EXCEPT MAKING UNCALLED COMMENTS, EVEN IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGES, AND ARE ALWAYS EITHER ALWAYS EATING, SPEAKING IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES WHICH I UNDERSTAND OR THEY ARE AT A MEETING EACH DAY. dR. NAGLER, DO NOT TRY TO MAKE YOURSELF IMPORTANT. INSTEAD TRY TO GET PROFESSIONAL HELP, DOCTORS, SO CALL SOCIAL WORKERS, WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE WORD (SOCIAL WORK MEANS) AND ABUSIVE AND VERY UNINTELLIGENT. YOU SEE WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL, YOU DID NOT GO TO 3 MONTH PROGRAMS, YOU WENT TO SCHOOL (COLLEGE AND MEDICAL SCHOOL) FOR THE REQUIRED AMOUNT, NOT THE AMOUNT GIVEN FOR PEOPLE THAT DID NOT EVEN FINISH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I AM DISGUSTED AND WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW THE PROPER AUTHORITIES WHAT BETH ISRAEL IS ALL ABOUT.

    NAGLER, DO NOT ANSWER THE UPHONE AND SAY WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU…….THIS IS HOG WASH.

    YOU WILL PROBABLY READ THIS SOMEWHERE ELSE SOON, A VERY IMPORTANT PLACE. ALSO TELL YOUR STAFF NOT TO THREATEN OR TRY TO PUT ELDERLY PEOPLE OUT ON THE STREET. THERE ARE PLENTY OF LAWYERS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN WHAT IS GOING ON, SO INSTEAD OF MAKING PARTIES, TRY TO TEACH THESE —— ———–D THAT THIS IS A HOSPITAL NOT A NIGHT CLUB.

    I WILL DO MY BEST TO PUT THIS FORTH IN THE PROPER AREAS.

    ALSO DO NOT TRY TO ABUSE ME OR MAKE ME AFRAID OF YU, CAUSE I AM ONLY AFRAID OF (HASHEM)….. NO ONE ELSE
