Effective January 1st, Sunny Isles Beach Mayor Norman S. Edelcup became Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation’s newest member of the board of directors’ executive committee. Edelcup’s appointment as Secretary of the Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation is a prestigious honor that Mount Sinai found fitting to bestow upon Edelcup for his more than 30 years of support and loyalty to the hospital.
“Mayor Norman S. Edelcup has been instrumental in the health and welfare of our community, both as a donor and now as an officer of the Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation, “stated Mark H. Hildebrandt, Mount Sinai Foundation President.
Edelcup’s association with Mount Sinai Medical Center began in the early 1970’s when he became a Young Presidents member. “Both my parents were alive at the time and they were ill. Mount Sinai was the place where I would bring them,” Edelcup said. “They always received excellent care and that strengthened my relationship with the hospital.”
In 1999, he showed his appreciation by making a $1.25 million gift to benefit the hospital’s Division of Anesthesiology which was renamed after him. The Norman S. Edelcup Department of Anesthesiology was dedicated in loving memory of Edelcup’s parents, Irving and Pauline Edelcup.
Edelcup’s involvement with the Mount Sinai Foundation has continued to flourish throughout the years and has resulted in better healthcare for the community that Edelcup so generously gives back to. From being a member of the Young Presidents and Founders Club to becoming a Humanitarian in the Society of Mount Sinai - an exclusive group of donors who provide the highest levels of support for the hospital – Mayor Norman S. Edelcup’s recent appointment as Secretary further solidifies his relationship with Mount Sinai.
Thanks to dedicated donors like Mayor Norman S. Edelcup, Mount Sinai Medical Center can continue to foster its mission of providing high quality healthcare to our diverse community.
