Proceeds will benefit the construction of a new state-of-the art cardiovascular pavilion at Mount Nittany Medical Center
The 28th Annual Mount Nittany Health Golf Classic was held Saturday, August 11, 2018 at the Penn State Golf Courses netting $167,000. Proceeds will support construction of a new state-of-the art cardiovascular pavilion at Mount Nittany Medical Center. In total, more than $2.3 million has been raised to help advance healthcare in the region since the Golf Classic’s inception in 1991.
The fully accredited cardiac catheterization lab is used during an emergency to intervene when a patient is having a heart attack; it can also be used to identify and correct other health conditions of the heart. The new pavilion will feature two cardiac catheterization labs, updated technology for the most sophisticated cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology and imaging services, new and expanded space for patients and loved ones, improved patient privacy and improved patient and family education and communication.
“We are so thankful for the support that continues to make this a premier tournament in our community and supports so many of the quality services that Mount Nittany Health provides for this region,” said Christopher Yingling, co-chair of the golf classic.
A unique feature of Mount Nittany Medical Center’s Golf Classic is the random drawing of one registered golfer for a grand prize of $12,000 or a 2018 Chevrolet Spark. Jeff Hollowood won the grand prize and chose the cash prize, donating a portion back to The Foundation.
