Robert Chaloner, President and CEO of Southampton Hospital, spoke about the creation of the center, saying, “Cancer patients undergoing treatment are often physically weakened, and adding a long trip to and from an appointment only adds to the stress.” He continued, “We are grateful to the Phillips family for making cancer treatment closer to home for many patients on the East End of Long Island.” Chaloner also thanked Jean Shafiroff for her hospitality and said that the year she hosted the Hospital’s Annual Summer Party was the most successful to date, raising over $2 million.

Midway through the event, Shafiroff  saluted Steve Bernstein, president of the Southampton Hospital Foundation, for his outstanding job in fundraising, and the Phillips family for their important contribution of $9 million to fund the center.
