Huntington Hospital

Huntington Hospital is a comprehensive, full-service, 408-bed nonprofit hospital that has been serving Huntington Township and the surrounding area since 1916.

Volunteer Opportunities

As a volunteer, you would be not only an integral and valuable component of the hospital's staff, but often a source of comfort and cheer to those who are caught in the experience of hospitalization. 

In 1917, 130 local women formed a "Woman's Auxiliary" at Huntington Hospital, performing many seemingly small tasks designed to lighten the load for the hospital staff. Over time, the name of the organization was changed, men and juniors joined the roster, and service expanded. Today, Huntington enjoys a robust program of over 500 volunteers, but the sense of dedication and purpose remains the same.

If you have a few hours, a sense of professionalism, and the ability to work well with others, you fit the volunteer profile. You'll find a comprehensive array of services to choose from. High school students ages 14-18 may pick up applications in the Volunteer Office, and information sessions for adults 18 and over are held monthly from September through June (there are no sessions in July and August). For more information, contact Huntington’s Volunteer Office, 631-351-2257.

 

Huntington Hospital FAQ's

How will my donation be used?

There are two types of gifts: restricted and unrestricted. Unrestricted gifts allow the hospital to decide which patient care area would most benefit from your generosity. Restricted gifts are those in which the donor directs his/her contribution to benefit a specific patient care area, the purchase of a piece of equipment, building project, or endowment. When you give to Huntington Hospital, you can be assured that your donation will be used in exactly the way that you intend. 

How will my donation be recognized?

Hospital donors are valued and appreciated. There are various recognition vehicles depending on the size of your gift and its area of designation.

All gifts (with the permission of the donor) of $500 or more are recognized in the Hospital's Annual Report published each year and distributed to over 100,000 households in Huntington and its surrounding communities. Gifts of $5,000 or more are recognized with the donor's name being publicly displayed within the hospital. Gifts are recognized cumulatively, meaning that all donors' giving is tracked annually. Some gifts have multiple recognitions.

Gifts can be made to name rooms, units, wings, and buildings. These opportunities begin with donations of $10,000.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Huntington Hospital is a not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 organization. As such, all donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Clark Gillies, YMCA Staff with HT Participants

Clark Gillies sets his goal on helping children by supporting Huntington Hospital

Clark Gillies, four-time Stanley Cup champion and Hockey Hall of Famer, is a champion both on and off the ice to children in the Huntington community.

Through the generous support of the Clark Gilles Foundation, Huntington Hospital opened The Clark Gillies Pediatric Unit. Passionate about pediatric care, this unit is a vital resource for families throughout the community. Furthering the association with Huntington Hospital, the foundation created an interactive playroom within the pediatric unit and opened The Clark Gillies Pediatric Emergency Room which is staffed and equipped specifically for children.

The foundation’s most recent collaboration with Huntington Hospital includes the support of a pediatric weight management program called Healthier Tomorrow which is jointly run by Huntington Hospital and the Huntington YMCA. Healthier Tomorrows helps young people, ages 9 -16, reverse early weight problems through nutrition, fun group exercise and psychosocial support. Studies have found 32% of all New York schoolchildren are overweight or obese, which puts children at risk for diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic conditions that were once seen primarily in adults. This program is specifically geared for young people who struggle to maintain a healthy weight.

“I’m so thrilled to have my foundation involved in the Healthier Tomorrows program,” Gillies said. “People are living longer now and we have to take care of ourselves from a young age. I’ve always been active and played sports my entire life. Healthier Tomorrows can show kids that exercise can be fun and social in the right setting.”

“The collaboration between the Y and Huntington Hospital is what makes this program so successful,” said Eileen Knauer, Executive Director of the Huntington YMCA. “This partnership allows us to introduce a prevention program into a community setting with repeated success.

The Clark Gillies Healthier Tomorrows program is changing lives.” The Clark Gillies Foundation is a non-profit corporation developed to help children who are physically, mentally, or financially challenged. Its goal is to help children and improve the quality of life for them and their families during difficult circumstances.
