Moulin Rouge is theme

The AtlantiCare Foundation will hold its 58th Annual Century Club Gala – featuring the theme Moulin Rouge – Saturday, April 8 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The Gala will kick off with a reception at 6:45 p.m. followed by dinner, remarks and dancing from 8 p.m. to midnight with The Steve Delisi Band.

The Foundation will honor 2017 Edward R. Knight Physician and Community Award recipients Alan Simpson, M.D., FACR, and the Glenn family at the event.

Guests are encouraged to dress up and have fun with the Paris cabaret theme for the black-tie event. Tickets are $325 per person and can be purchased securely online.

Proceeds will also benefit the establishment of a Healthy Communities Fund.

About the Edward R. Knight Award
AtlantiCare established the Edward R. Knight Award in 1998 to honor those who contribute to building a healthier community. It is named for the late Edward R. Knight, Ph.D., who was chairman emeritus of ARMC and who devoted more than 50 years of service to improving healthcare for those who live and work in southeastern New Jersey.

Alan J. Simpson, M.D., FACR

About Alan J. Simpson, M.D., FACR
Alan Simpson, M.D., FACR, of Mays Landing, New Jersey, is a radiologist with Atlantic Medical Imaging, where he was a partner in the practice for many years, and served as CEO from 1995 to 2000. He has been a member of the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Department of Radiology since 1976. He served as president of the Medical Staff in 1984. He has been a clinical leader and an ardent champion for patient quality and safety issues. He has provided many years of service on several of AtlantiCare’s boards, beginning with the AtlantiCare Foundation Board in 1988, where he served as chairman from 1993 to 1995. He went on to serve on AtlantiCare Health Services Board. He currently serves on AtlantiCare’s System Quality Committee (not a Board position). Simpson was an early adopter of AtlantiCare’s population health strategies and has worked with his fellow physicians to identify opportunities to reduce unnecessary and/or duplicative studies. His efforts have led to a reduction in healthcare costs, and improvements in care quality and patient safety.

The Glenn Family

About The Glenn Family
As a family, the Glenns are a charitable force. What started out with the late Mr. Thomas Glenn, II, and his service to not only AtlantiCare and many other local agencies, is now continued by his beloved wife, Anne Marie, and his children, with Thomas Glenn III, or Tim, serving as the family figurehead. The Glenn legacy is to make a difference. AtlantiCare and the greater community have been recipients of this family’s call to action. The Glenns have had leadership roles working with many local organizations over the last several decades. In addition to the AtlantiCare Foundation, the Glenns participate in CASA of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, the Linwood Education Foundation, and other organizations. Beyond their individual contributions, the Glenns also encourage their entire workforce at Glenn Insurance to make a difference in the communities they serve. They encourage their employees to be good friends, good neighbors, and respected colleagues by corporately supporting initiatives including Toys for Tots, the South Jersey Field of Dreams, and the American Heart Association and its annual Heart Walk. The Glenn family has made a tremendous positive impact on the communities it and AtlantiCare serve through decades of service, leadership, and generosity.

AtlantiCare to host ‘Mommy & Me’ Brunch
Saturday, March 11

Event to benefit families in need of cribs

AtlantiCare, in partnership with Babies “R” Us®, will host a ‘Mommy & Me’ Brunch Saturday, March 11 at 11 a.m. at the Smithville Inn in Historic Smithville.

The family-friendly brunch will include story time, crafts with characters, toy demonstrations by Toy Market, and gift giveaways from Babies “R” Us. Magna Dias, M.D., medical director, CHOP Care Network at AtlantiCare and Jennifer Tioseco, M.D., neonatologist, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and medical director, ARMC’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), will share tips for raising happy, healthy children.

The National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program has recognized ARMC as a Gold Safe Sleep Champion for its commitment to using best practices and providing education about infant safe sleep.

Through the program, ARMC gives a Cribs for Kids® Graco® Pack ‘n Play® to any new parent who does not have a crib. Cribs for Kids® is a Pittsburgh-based organization that created The National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program, and is dedicated to preventing infant, sleep-related deaths due to accidental suffocation.
