Facing possible funding cuts, Open Door to host fundraiser

During the event, Open Door will honor Denise Gonick, president and CEO of MVP Heath Care, and Dr. Binoy Singh, associate chief of cardiovascular medicine and director of clinical business development for Northwell Health Lenox Hill.

The fundraiser comes against the backdrop of the organization’s potential federal funding cuts. Last month, Congress failed to reauthorize the Community Health Centers Fund by its Sept. 30 expiration date. The funding accounts for about 70 percent of the $6 million in federal funding received by Open Door.
