Bleakley Platt to Sponsor Yonkers Chamber of Commerce Event

February 2008

Bleakley Platt is proud to sponsor The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast on February 26, 2008, featuring Keynote Speaker Patricia A. Tursi, Chief Executive Officer of Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center. Ms. Tursi joined the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center as its first Executive Director in 2001, charged with creating a new independent leadership structure that would support a continuum of care for medically fragile children. She is a licensed nursing home administrator with over 20 years of health care administrative experience.

The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center was established in 1988 by the Sisters of Charity as an affiliate of the New York Foundling to provide specialized residential and rehabilitative services to medically fragile children with complex clinical conditions and disabilities. Over time the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center has evolved into a healthcare system for children independently incorporated with its own distinct mission and leadership offering long-term care, special education and homecare services.

Ms. Tursi will speak at the Networking Breakfast on the “Relocation to Yonkers Project” of the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center. The Networking Breakfast will be held at The Royal Regency Hotel located at 165 Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers. Reservations for this event can be made by contacting The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce at (914) 963-0332.
