NEW YORK, NY, August 04, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Isaac Toussie's philanthropic work has reached a multitude of organizations throughout the country. He has contributed to hospitals, schools and public health organizations. Yet, Toussie's commitment to supporting orthopedic programs throughout the country is both unique and important. Orthopedic health programs serve a vital function in facilitating proper recoveries for individuals with bone or joint injuries. These programs are necessary, but frequently are underfunded.
Trying to make a change, Toussie started his commitment to changing the landscape for orthopedic funding by making a substantial contribution to the Broward Health's Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center. Broward Health generally is a hospital system located in Broward County, Florida. In 2020, Broward Health had over 1,500 bed and 240,000 emergency visits. The facility is constantly growing in both size and scope. Their flagship hospital, Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, is a Level I trauma center and offers services ranging from cardiac care to surgical weight loss. Broward's other hospitals offer similar services to various locations throughout the county. Toussie's donation to the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center will help the hospital system treat various individuals that have suffered from sports related injuries. Any individual can suffer from a sport induced injury, many of whom would not have an easy medium for treatment without Broward's center.
Toussie's commitment to the field of orthopedics also led to his donations to the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). As its name indicated, HSS is a specialized hospital that treats patients with mobility issues. HSS is one of, if not the most, prestigious hospital in its field, ranking first in Orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report over the past 12 years. HSS has an unmatched level of expertise. "Founded in 1863, Hospital for Special Surgery is the oldest orthopedic hospital in the United States. More than 32,000 surgical procedures are performed annually. HSS performs more hip surgeries and more knee replacements than any other hospital in the US," as stated on HSS's website.
Orthopedics is not the only specialty medical field that Toussie has contributed to; he has made a point to support to a vast majority of specialty organizations. Toussie has made donations to the JDRF, a world-class organization that funds research projects for type 1 diabetes. The organizations mission is to eliminate type 1 diabetes through increased technological and scientific advancements. Additionally, Toussie has donated to the Epilepsy Foundation. The foundation looks to help those with epilepsy better live with their disorder. That usually comes in the form of helping individuals find effective treatment and manage the symptoms of the disorder. The foundation also provides local communities with educational programs to teach them about the disorder.
Isaac Toussie's lifelong commitment to philanthropy has benefited a multitude of organizations, individuals and medical platforms. Toussie's specific commitment to orthopedic programs has been expansive, yet not exclusive. It has aided multiple organizations across the east coast and has enabled much growth within their specialty fields.
