WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains Hospital will honor longtime Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jon B. Schandler at its annual Auxiliary Gala for his four decades of remarkable service to the healthcare organization.
The event will take place at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $500 per person.
Schandler is a 38-year veteran employee of the Hospital, having joined in 1976 as Controller before being promoted to lead the institution in 1981 as President and CEO. His exceptional leadership tenure during that time drove unprecedented growth of the now 121-year old hospital, expanding its clinical programs and services, growing its physician base and strengthening its position in the community as the leading advanced healthcare provider in the region. “We couldn’t have picked a more fitting honoree this year to salute an individual who has led our Hospital through multiple decades of growth, transformation and prosperity,” said White Plains Hospital Auxiliary Co-President Brenda Oestreich of Scarsdale.
“His reputation as a champion of quality healthcare in this community is well deserved and one we are very excited to be celebrating near the end of his remarkable career.”
Schandler plans to retire in the spring of 2015. Earlier this year, it was announced that Susan Fox, current Hospital president, will succeed him as both president and CEO. The gala will feature cocktails, dinner and dancing with music from a twelve-piece band, silent auction and several tributes to Schandler.
