"From the beginning, the Ellen Hermanson Foundation has generously supported the growth and exceptional quality of Southampton Hospital's breast health program," expressed Southampton Hospital President and CEO, Robert Chaloner when he announced that The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has awarded the Hospital two grants. "The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center has distinguished itself by offering state-of-the-art "academic medical center" care in a warm and compassionate community hospital setting."

The two grants, totaling $295,000, will fund technology and patient support services at The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center. "Medical care is not a luxury," noted Julie Ratner, Ellen Hermanson Foundation Chair. "The Foundation is committed to supporting Southampton Hospital by providing the necessary funds to insure that women and men have access to quality breast health care close to home. That is why we keep the money we raise on the East End in the community."

$100,000 of the $170,700 grant will be applied to the purchase of a Tomosynthesis 3-D Imaging System at the Medical Atrium in Hampton Bays, which will provide convenient access for patients who live in communities west of the Shinnecock Canal, and enable the Hospital to invest in new technology to assure correct and timely diagnosis and treatment. The rest of that grant will be applied to the purchase of diagnostic and treatment technology including a new DEXA system and Radioactive Seed Localization. The grant of $124,300 will support Ellen's Well services including an oncological social worker, the annual "Day of Renewal and Hope," the "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" program, and transportation for cancer patients undergoing treatment. 2015 marks the milestone 20th anniversary of Ellen's Run, the annual Hamptons 5K race, which is the biggest fundraising effort the Ellen Hermanson Foundation holds.

The Foundation is a long-time partner of Southampton Hospital's Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, which is the only facility of its kind on Eastern Long Island.

Southampton Hospital is located at 240 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more information, call 631-726-8200 or visit www.southamptonhospital.org.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
