Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation recently held its annual gala at the Grand Hyatt in Manhattan, honoring elder law pioneer, author and practitioner Ronald Schwartz Esq.
During the annual gala, Schwartz was given the Parker Medal and was also presented with a Mayoral Proclamation from Mayor Mike Bloomberg, represented by Michael Cardozo.
“As the healthcare and financial landscape for older adults becomes more complex, the significance of the dedicated counsel that Ron and members of his firm provide becomes increasingly valuable to the region’s fastest-growing population,” Lenny Tanzer, Parker’s Chairman of the Board, said.
Michael Rosenblut, Parker’s president and CEO, praised the facility for its work.
“At a time when access to adult healthcare is diminishing for many, those who depend upon Parker are enjoying an expanding network of services, divisions and affiliates, including the rapidly-growing managed long-term care plan, AgeWell New York,” he said. “While Parker grows to meet unprecedented demand, the essence of its care remains warmth and compassion.”
