You Just Try and Help the Most People Possible

Dr. Mark Schlesinger

For more than 30 years, Dr. Mark Schlesinger has been a big part of, and a big giver to, the Hackensack University Medical Center family. Not only does he share his clinical expertise as chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology, he also gives generously of his time, energy and resources in raising and donating funds for the medical center.

“When I turned 60, it dawned on me how deeply involved I had been with the Foundation over my time here,” confides Mark. “And it struck me that I had given a lot incrementally, but maybe it was time to consolidate my commitment into something lasting.”
