More than 50 members of the Kiwanis Club of Patchogue and the Patchogue Lions Club attended a joint meeting Dec. 16 at the Kiwanis BrickHouse Brewery meeting place. Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center President and CEO Richard Margulis updated the members on the latest developments at the hospital including continuing construction of the $61 million Knapp Cardiac Care Center building and the year old Interventional Cardiology program. In the program, more than 1,300 lifesaving cardiac procedures have been performed. The Patchogue Kiwanis Club chartered Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in 1954.
