The donation was presented by Dr. Huang, his wife Seung, and sons Roger and Joey. “We are pleased to present this donation to the hospital that meant so much to me and to my family. We are pleased to support women’s healthcare.”
Dr. Huang, an obstetrician-gynecologist who delivered more than 5,000 babies through his career in Ashtabula, joined the ACMC Medical Staff in 1972, providing care for women and families until his retirement in 2014.
ACMC Healthcare System President and CEO Michael Habowski said, “Dr. Huang devoted his remarkable career in medicine to serving patients in Ashtabula County. Through a career that spanned longer than four decades in this community, Dr. Huang did so much for so many women and their families. We are grateful to him, and to his family, for sharing his compassion and expertise with our patients and now, for sharing such incredible generosity.”
Dr. Huang said supporting local healthcare has always been a priority for him. Being able to show that support through a donation that supports women’s healthcare at ACMC is a blessing for his family.”
“Ashtabula has been our home for a long time, and it’s such a special community,” he said. “I’ve been so blessed to raise my family here and to practice medicine at ACMC. Ashtabula County Medical Center is so very important to this community and I’m so pleased to give back.”
ACMC Foundation Executive Director Tami Netkowicz said this donation is particularly meaningful, because of Dr. Huang’s legacy and because of the impact it will have on women’s healthcare.
“We are humbled to receive the Huang family’s philanthropy, to continue Dr. Huang’s legacy of enhancing healthcare in Ashtabula County.” she said. “He dedicated his career to women’s health and we are honored to commemorate his service and continue forging that mission.”
The donation supports an imaging suite at ACMC dedicated to women’s healthcare. The suite will consolidate several of ACMC’s existing imaging services into an area devoted to the unique needs of women. The suite will offer mammography, ultrasound, and bone density scan all within a defined space designed for comfort as well as quality healthcare services. The project features new finishes, fixture upgrades, and new state-of-the-art equipment.
“It’s important for all patients to feel comfortable when seeking and receiving medical care,” said Habowski. “We are excited to be able to offer this space for women in the community, to continue to enhance access to safe, quality care.”
The project will begin this month and is expected to be completed by spring. For more about diagnostic imaging at ACMC, please visit www.acmchealth.org and click on Diagnostic Imaging under the Services tab.
