Greenfield named as honoree of Mount Sinai’s golf outing


Jeffrey Greenfield, a prominent Long Island business leader in Lynbrook, longtime supporter of Mount Sinai South Nassau, vice chair of the Nassau County Planning Commission, and member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department, has been named honoree of the Mount Sinai South Nassau’s 40th Annual Golf Outing to be held Monday, May 13.

The largest annual hospital golf fundraiser on Long Island will be held at three prestigious and challenging golf venues: The Seawane Club, Hewlett Harbor; Rockaway Hunting Club, Lawrence; and Rockville Links Club, Rockville Centre. All net proceeds will benefit Mount Sinai South Nassau with a portion of the funds dedicated to helping patients of the hospital’s cancer program.

Greenfield previously served as volunteer co-chair of the hospital’s 45-member golf outing committee.

“Jeff is a loyal friend to the hospital and has been committed to our growth and success,” Adhi Sharma, MD, President of Mount Sinai South Nassau, said in a release. “He often reminds us that he was born at South Nassau, so our hospital is part of his life story. His dedication and selfless work, including his many years as Co-Chair of the hospital’s Golf Outing, inspires the Mount Sinai South Nassau staff, and we are grateful for his support.”

Golf Committee Chair Tony Cancellieri noted that Greenfield’s work with the golf committee helped increase the number of golfers participating in the annual event, while garnering the support of dozens of local businesses through golf outing sponsorships. Last year’s outing established a new record for the event, raising a gross amount of $723,335.

“Jeff Greenfield is a great friend who has been involved in community affairs for four decades,” Cancellieri said in a release. “His work with the Rockville Centre Community Fund and as a Planning Board member are just two of his noteworthy efforts. He often appears before local governmental authorities as a ‘Citizen Taxpayer’ to advocate for common-sense solutions to the many challenges his fellow residents face here on Long Island. His leadership of the hospital’s Golf Outing has helped grow the event and increase donations to advance the hospital’s mission.”

In addition to supporting Mount Sinai South Nassau’s ongoing growth and expansion to improve health care services for South Shore residents, a portion of the funds raised will also benefit the hospital’s cancer patients, including the no-cost “Cold Cap” program to help patients prevent hair loss during chemotherapy as well as a program to provide free rides for low-income patients to cancer-related medical appointments at the hospital’s Gertrude and Louis Feil Cancer Center.

“For me, there is no greater honor than this,” Greenfield said in a release. “I have seen South Nassau grow from a small community hospital to a regional medical center with advanced services. This is my hospital and my community, and I am proud of this honor.”

A managing partner of the NGL Group in Lynbrook, Greenfield serves on Mount Sinai South Nassau’s Advisory Board and is the immediate past co-chair of the annual Golf Outing Committee. An active member of the insurance community for nearly 50 years, he has been a member of the Professional Insurance Agents of New York State Inc., which he served as its vice president from 1992 to 1993, first vice president from 1993 to 1994, and president from 1994 to 1995. In addition, he is an active member and past honoree of the UJA, Insurance Division.

Greenfield served 20 years — 16 years as Chair — as a member of the Village of Rockville Centre Board of Zoning Appeals; was appointed to the Nassau County Planning Commission in 2002 by former Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi; and was appointed by the New York State Senate in 2013 to the Long Island Power Authority Board of Trustees, where he serves as a liaison between the Authority and community.

After serving 10 years as a board member and officer of Temple B’nai Sholom, he was its president for two terms. He also has served as President of The Seawane Club. Additionally, he has been President of the Kiwanis Club, a trustee for the Village of Rockville Centre, and a member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department for more than 45 years.

The first recipient of the Sunrise Association’s Joe Weksler Memorial Service Award, Greenfield also serves on the Board of Directors for Molloy University.

Greenfield and his wife, Pearl, are residents of Rockville Centre. They are the parents of two children, Mitch and Jill, and are the proud grandparents of three.
