The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation is another charity proudly supported by North Shore Cosmetic Surgery. The foundation, which operates a cancer center in Huntington Hospital, is focused on research, education, and finding cures for all types of cancers. This wonderful organization is the work of Joseph and Tita Monti, who founded it after the loss of their teenage son, Don Monti.
Of course, Huntington Hospital itself, a member of Northwell Health, is one of our most important charities. Huntington Hospital is where our doctors and their families receive care, as well as where they care for their own patients. We believe strongly in the hospital's mission and recognize its importance as a pillar of healthcare on Long Island.
"The humanity of the nurses and physicians who work at Huntington Hospital is palpable, and the quality of the medical care provided is exceptional. I am proud to work there, and to serve as Chief of Staff," says Dr. Romanelli.
Other community needs supported by North Shore Cosmetic Surgery include the Long Island Association for AIDS Care, or LIAAC, an organization which supplies resources for local individuals facing HIV and AIDS. Dr. Romanelli also believes that wellness, particularly among the young, is an important cause. In 2013, our clinic supported the ING Run for Something Better, which supports school-based fitness programs.
Finally, North Shore Cosmetic Surgery is also proud to support Volunteers for Wildlife, a nonprofit animal rescue organization here on Long Island.
The doctors and staff of Northshore Cosmetic Surgery are honored to be able to support these very worthy causes.
