2016 Crouse Classic

Monday, July 18

Crouse Health Foundation’s 15th annual Crouse Classic Golf Tournament was held Monday, July 18, at the beautiful and challenging Bellevue Country Club in Syracuse.

Both morning and afternoon shotgun starts were offered in a Captain and Crew format as golfers enjoyed friendly contests on a variety of holes with tasty treats and refreshments available throughout the course.

With only two minor inclement weather delays, golfers in both sessions played 18 holes followed by a casual reception, delicious dinner and awards presentation.

Once again, the tournament was sold out with a record 216 golfers and with net proceeds more than $125,000. Proceeds from the 2016 tournament will be used to support the work of the Baker Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Crouse Hospital’s Kienzle Family Maternity Center. To date, golf tournaments in support of the hospital have raised more than $1.6 million.

This year’s Crouse Classic Golf Tournament proceeds will be used to purchase a portable ultrasonography machine that will assist in the placement and location of central venous IVs.

Our Baker Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is using an increasing number of central venous lines, especially in the smallest premature babies, while providing care in the NICU. These catheter tubes are used to give medicines, fluids, and/or nutrients to the infant patients. Use of this advanced equipment will enhance patient safety efforts, benefitting both the babies and the staff who care for them.

Donations to benefit the Baker Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are gratefully welcomed. For more information and/or inquiries about the 2017 Crouse Classic Golf Tournament, please contact Phyllis Devlin in the Foundation office at 315-470-7008.
