Celebrating 10 years!
For the past decade, SCRUBS has played an integral role in keeping Huntington Hospital at the forefront of world-class medical care. We are grateful to SCRUBS members for 10 years of thoughtful philanthropy and enjoyed recently celebrating this milestone with them!
What is SCRUBS?
SCRUBS is a group of generous, enthusiastic supporters dedicated to safeguarding the future of health care in our region through consistent annual contributions. They are – in essence – our newest generation of philanthropists! Founded in 2005, SCRUBS is a dynamic and forward-thinking group whose support has become invaluable.

SCRUBS recently successfully met their fundraising goal of $1.8 million for the Campaign for Pediatrics. Their support made the renovation and refurbishment of our pediatric and pediatric intensive care units possible – creating the most healing and comforting environment for more than 1,300 young patients and their families who turn to us for medical care every year.
Before helping our community’s children, SCRUBS raised funds to expand our Nan and Howard Schow Emergency & Trauma Center. Their gifts helped create a state-of-the-art facility that more than doubles our capacity to provide lifesaving care, close to home.
We are so grateful to SCRUBS members for helping us provide world-class health care, for the 21st century, to our region and beyond.
