Chuck Clarvit, Mark Hauser, Jonathan Spitalny and Alan Waxenberg Nominated
as Philanthropic Leaders for the Hospital
White Plains, NY (May 10, 2012) - Four longtime Scarsdale residents: Chuck Clarvit, Mark Hauser, Jonathan Spitalny and Alan Waxenberg have been nominated to the Foundation Board of White Plains Hospital, tasked with serving as ambassadors for the Hospital in the Westchester community and leaders of its philanthropic missions.
With hospitals under increasing financial stress to reduce costs and provide affordable care to growing numbers of insured individuals, the role of philanthropy is seen as more crucial than ever before. White Plains Hospital’s $100 million The Time Is Now capital campaign to expand and modernize facilities will rely heavily on Foundation Board members to increase philanthropic support for the Hospital from the community and raise awareness of the exceptional clinical services it provides.
Mr. Clarvit is a financial executive currently serving as the C.E.O. of Vinci Partners, an asset and wealth management firm headquartered in Brazil. He and his wife, Nancy are longtime donors to White Plains Hospital. The hospital’s cardiac catheterization laboratory, opened in 2008 and since lauded as a lifesaving resource for thousands in the community, was recently named in honor of Mrs. Clarvit’s parents, Dr. and Mrs. Alan Herfort.
Mr. Hauser, also a financial executive, is Managing Director at Tamarix Capital, a private investment firm based in New York, and began supporting the Hospital earlier this year.
Mr. Spitalny is an Executive Director at Morgan Stanley-Smith Barney in New York City. He is a co-founder of the Hospital’s annual Ahmad Rashad Golf Classic, a popular and successful fundraising event held every June.
Mr. Waxenberg is a retired publishing executive, having most recently served as the Publisher of Good Housekeeping and Redbook Magazines. All are energetic supporters of the Hospital who are striving to secure its future amid the uncertainty and financial challenges brought on by the current economy and health care reform bill. “White Plains Hospital is an extraordinary healthcare resource which we are tremendously fortunate to have here in Westchester County,” said Mr. Waxenberg, who is also a longtime Hospital Volunteer. “Our work on the Foundation Board will advance the Hospital’s philanthropic goals to broaden the reach of these exceptional clinical services for the community.”
