In 2015, the Foundation joined forces with Richmond University Medical Center in support of RUMC's Emergency Room Capital Project.

The project addressed the critical community need to design and construct a new emergency room to serve the Staten Island community. The current ER facility was originally designed to accommodate 35,000 patient visits annually and currently the hospital receives a volume of 65,000+ visits annually. Once completed, the project will ensure state-of-the-art critical care to the Staten I sland community. Included in the new facility will be the Dr. William C. Frederick Trauma Care Center named after one of the Foundation’s founding Board members who served as Chief of Surgery at the hospital from 1965-1977.
