Auxiliary gives hospital $100,000

More than 150 people attended the Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary spring gala at the Birchwood Country Club in Westport on May 22.

During the event, the auxiliary presented a $100,000 check to support the renovation of the SurgEase ambulatory surgery unit at the hospital. The amount represents the final installment of a four-year, $350,000 total auxiliary pledge, part of which has already been used to help fund a water wall in the hospital’s main lobby.

The gala honored two recently retired physicians, William (Greg) Hulcher and M. Clive Robinson, as well as Robinson’s wife, Robyn, a retiring auxiliary member.

A resident of Woodbridge, Hulcher was a member of the hospital board of directors and practiced internal medicine from his office in Trumbull as a member of the hospital medical staff for more than 40 years.

Robinson, who lives with his wife in Fairfield, was chief of cardiothoracic surgery from 1999 to 2013, and is regarded as an international pioneer in minimally invasive heart surgery. He was part of the team that performed New England’s first hybrid ablation procedure for atrial fibrillation in 2011.

The gala was co-chaired by Amparo Castillo of Monroe and Bonnie Molloy of Fairfield, an auxiliary member and nurse anesthetist at the hospital.
