07 DECEMBER 2017 / Opening of the John H. Gutfreund Fetal Heart Program at The Children’s Hospital at the Montefiore Hutchinson Campus

On Monday, December 11th, 2017, the Pediatric Heart Center at the Children’s Hospital at the Montefiore Hutchinson Campus will host the ribbon cutting for The John H. Gutfreund Fetal Heart Program, established with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

The program, which is funded through a grant from the SNF, in memory of John H. Gutfreund brings an interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, social workers and child life specialists together to provide the highest quality cardiac care to diagnose and treat conditions that can affect the heart of a developing fetus as well as the expectant mother.

John H. Gutfreund served on the Board of Trustees at Montefiore, with a strong sense of civic duty who believed that less affluent communities deserved quality healthcare, and purposely focused his unwavering commitment to Montefiore and the Bronx.
