Prominent Glen Cove Doc To Retire

Dr. Ingolf Holm-Anderson, a prominent gastroenterologist at 

 

Glen Cove Hospital, is set to retire from his position which he has held for nearly 50 years. He is one of 17 doctors at the hospital who specializes in gastroenterology. Dr. Anderson was an instrumental figure in helping to save the hospital when it was announced last August that services would be cut and 1,200 jobs would be lost.

 

According to Amy Hochberg, who is an active community member and whose husband works as a urologist at the hospital, Dr. Anderson placed his name as a plaintiff on a lawsuit to prevent North Shore Long Island Jewish from reducing services at the hospital. He also helped by getting doctor’s in the community to support keeping certain wings of the Hospital open.

 

“He was very instrumental in getting doctors who worked for divisions of the hospital to support this decision,” said Hochberg.

 

It was reported last year that the 90-year-old hospital would move its world-renowned orthopedic unit and psychiatric unit to Syosset.

 

“Dr. Anderson helped to keep Glen Cove a full service hospital with an ICU and operating room,” said Hochberg. “As a result of his action, North Shore agreed to let Glen Cove Hospital keep a part of their orthopedic unit open.”

 

The inpatient rehabilitation unit will remain at Glen Cove Hospital indefinitely and shift its focus to
those who suffer from neurological conditions. The Brain Injury rehabilitation program will also remain in place.

 

The retirement party will be held at the Swan Club in Roslyn on Thursday, June 12 at 6:30 p.m. It is $125 per person and any donations are greatly appreciated. 

 

Checks can be made to Professional Staff Fund, 101 St. Andrews Lane Glen Cove, NY 11542. Please include “Dr. Ingo Holm-Andersen” in the memo section.
