Grossmont Hospital Foundation hosted event to support hospital’s patient services and programs.

Grossmont Hospital Foundation raised more than $410,000 for Sharp Grossmont Hospital at the 30th Anniversary Grossmont Hospital Invitational Golf Tournament at Sycuan Resort, held April 17, 2014. This year’s total fundraising amount exceeded last year’s record breaking figure by $30,000, an increase of 7 percent.
Teeing off for the cause were 316 golfers, representing a range of industries — from health care and construction to architecture and IT. Proceeds from the event will support priority initiatives related to patient services and programs at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, including a new, state-of-the-art heart and vascular center.
“This event was truly a community effort,” says Dr. Scott Musicant, a Sharp Grossmont-affiliated vascular surgeon, and one of this year’s event co-chairs. “And because of the golf committee's passion for helping Sharp Grossmont provide the best patient care possible, we were able to raise proceeds that will allow us to continue to enhance patient care with the most advanced technology available.” Dr. Musicant has co-chaired the event for the last five years with Hollis Gentry, director of medical services for Pacific Building Group.
The event’s title sponsors include EDCO Disposal Corporation, which has participated at this level for the 22nd consecutive year, Grossmont Shopping Center, Plum Healthcare Group and Shea Family. Pacific Building Group is this year’s Tournament Level sponsor. Eagle sponsors include Cisco & Nexus IS, Diversified Protection Systems, Inc., McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., National Electric Works/National Security Works, Pacific Building Group and Sodexo Health Care Services.
Over the last three years the tournament has raised more than $1,145,000 and over the 30 years since its inception, Grossmont Hospital Foundation’s annual invitational golf tournament has raised more than $4.4 million toward hospital services and programs, including:
- TomoTherapy, a highly precise, image-guided radiation therapy for cancer patients

- The women’s health center, cancer center, emergency and critical care, wound care and endoscopy
- ThinkFirst, a children's educational program dedicated to the prevention of spinal cord and brain injuries
