On Tuesday, July 25, Hospital officials, staff, and friends and family of Mrs. Lord gathered at the facility in Hampton Bays to officially introduce the Barbara H. Lord Regional Dialysis Center.

Mrs. Lord, who passed away in 2016, established the J. Couper Lord, Jr. Memorial Fund in memory of her son, who was a patient at the Dialysis Center, and for years she spearheaded annual appeals to raise money for a number of items to help support the Center. Her efforts resulted in a generator to ensure patients still receive care in the event of a power outage, as well as new treatment chairs with televisions to make their long and frequent visits more comfortable.
