Proceeds benefit Cardiac Catheterization Lab renovations at Mount Nittany Medical Center
The 27th Annual Mount Nittany Health Golf Classic will be held on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at the Penn State Golf Courses. The Golf Classic Committee is in year 3/3 to raise funds for the Cardiac Catheterization Lab renovations at Mount Nittany Medical Center and to date have raised $300,000. Over $2.1 million cumulatively has been raised to help advance healthcare in the region since the Golf Classic's inception 26 years ago.
Proceeds from this year's Golf Classic will again benefit Mount Nittany Health's Cardiac Catheterization Lab which has seen steady growth since it first opened in April 2000. Since then, the Cath Lab has performed more than 5,950 diagnostic catheterizations and 2,400 cardiac interventions, including 780 on patients experiencing a life-threatening event requiring immediate treatment. A much needed renovation to the lab will include a new cath table with imaging system and an advanced patient monitoring system, improving the patient experience.
Golfers will enjoy a round of golf, a boxed lunch, courtesy of Bonfatto's, post-play reception and awards dinner, sponsored by Curtze Food Service; commemorative gift, and on-course refreshments and snacks, sponsored by Friedman Real Estate and courtesy of Bittner Vending, Pepsi, Roaring Spring Bottling, and W.R. Hickey Beer Distributor.
