Gavin’s Got Heart is pleased to honor Donna Moravick at the 2017 Cocktails for a Cause event.
Prior to becoming the executive director of Southside hospital, Donna was the Vice President of Cardiac services for the Northwell System. She was responsible for all aspects of cardiac care in and out of the hospital. In 2011, Donna was instrumental in the opening of the cardiac surgery program at Southside Hospital. In 2012, Donna became the executive director of Southside. Since 2012, Southside Hospital continues to transition into a tertiary facility. With the quality clinical programs, and the new construction, Southside continues to grow.
Donna and her husband, Patrick reside in West Babylon (next door to her sister and brother-in-law). The two Moravick sons and their wives reside in Suffolk County. Her passion aside from her family and work life are her three dogs; Herbie, Willie, and Buddy. Donna’s mantra is to LEAD by example. Her commitment as a “people person” has allowed her to always do the right thing for the patients and the community. Southside Hospital is an integral part of the community and the community is an integral part of the hospital-in fact, in Donna’s eyes, they are inseparable.
Turning point in my life
Putting the open heart surgery program at Southside which led to me becoming the executive director of Southside.
Funniest moment in your life
When my dog chased a goose and didn’t realize the dock was wet. He slid into the canal!! We had to fish him out. HE still holds a grudge against geese!
