Westfield, NY – Friday, the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for Westfield’s community hospital when the Westfield Memorial Hospital Foundation (WMHF) was incorporated under its original name of Chautauqua Health Care Foundation, exactly 40 years ago on the same date. The foundation was renamed to Westfield Memorial Hospital Foundation on June 5, 1996. This year, the foundation hosted its 26th Annual Golf Tournament at the Chautauqua Golf Club on Friday, July 13….also a lucky day!
The WMHF Golf Tournament draws medical and corporate professionals, business owners and employees, hospital associates and community members interested in keeping quality healthcare in our region while enjoying a great day of golf. The event featured a continental breakfast, lunch, an afternoon out on the links, and a clam bar, which was then followed by a cocktail reception and a prime rib dinner.
The proceeds from the tournament will benefit the foundation’s Annual Campaign in support of the hospital. The WMHF Annual Golf Tournament event has proudly donated more than $800,000 to Westfield Memorial Hospital through the quarter of a century it has been held.
WMHF is very grateful to its numerous individual and corporate sponsors for the event and acknowledges all of its treasured donors.
WMH Foundation President Kathryn Bronstein, PhD, RN, said: “We are beyond thrilled by the sheer number of businesses, civic organizations and members of our community who in addition to sponsorships also donated exceptional Gifts-in-Kind to the hospital and foundation’s largest fundraiser.”

“As we all know, there is no “I” in teamwork; it took many hands including those of various board members, hospital associates and volunteers who helped to ensure the success of our annual golf tournament. We remain indebted and incredibly grateful to all those who support our community hospital and its foundation – especially during our 40th anniversary year,” remarked WMH Foundation Executive Director/2018 Golf Committee Chair Patricia Gaughan DiPalma.
