On April 29th, Northern Westchester Hospital (NWH) honored Anita Grover, MD, a gynecologist and member of the NWH Foundation Board of Directors, and husband Tom Hargrove, for their enduring commitment and generous contributions to NWH at a dedication ceremony of the lobby in the North Building. Named in honor of Dr. Grover’s parents, the lobby in the North Building will now be called the Harriet and Perry Grover Lobby.
Dr. Grover was the Physician Honoree at the Hospital’s 2014 Gala where she was recognized for her longstanding generosity to the hospital. “While Anita and Tom have been extraordinarily generous financial supporters, they also understand that the little things also mean so much. For example, when Anita discovered that there was an old analog television in the Physician’s Lounge, she immediately volunteered to purchase a new flat screen television so her colleagues can relax a bit as they waited for their littlest patients to make their entrance,” said Keeva Young-Wright, President of Northern Westchester Hospital’s Foundation. Dr. Grover is also famous for sharing fresh eggs from her farm with staff at the hospital and her medical group.
President and CEO, Joel Seligman, along with family members, friends, NWH Trustees, members of the NWH Foundation Board of Directors and Leadership, celebrated Dr. Grover and Mr. Hargrove’s commitment to NWH.
“We have the privilege of honoring Anita and Tom and their deep commitment to Northern Westchester Hospital,” said Mr. Seligman during remarks. “Anita has been a committed leader and supporter of our hospital for many years, including serving as the Co-Chair of our Physician Campaign for the new operating suite. Choosing to name the North Lobby after Anita’s parents is truly representative of the altruistic and grateful nature of Anita and Tom and is an appropriate way to celebrate and recognize their generosity now and for generations to come.”
Dr. Grover, a resident of Bridgewater, Connecticut, is a board-certified gynecologist who founded Women’s Medical Associates more than 25 years ago. She was the first female, board–certified obstetrician to practice in Northern Westchester, and currently practices with Westchester Health Associates with offices in Mount Kisco, Tarrytown, Katonah and Yorktown Heights.
“I thank my parents for their unwavering support of me and my brothers,” said Dr. Grover. “I know they would be honored. Now every time I walk in this entrance I will think of my parents.” Dr. Grover also stresses the importance of philanthropy in ensuring that Northern Westchester Hospital always has the latest technology and highest qualified clinicians caring for the people in our community. “It gives Tom and me great satisfaction knowing that the gift we made to NWH has helped provide six state-of-the-art new operating rooms which will serve the community for many years to come.”
