Robert and Barbara Luciano: Supporting Their Hometown Hospital
Although it was more than 45 years ago, Robert Luciano will always remember the care his father received at Morristown Medical Center while being treated for pancreatic cancer. Over the years, donating to the hospital became his and his wife Barbara’s language of loyalty.
Most recently, a $500,000 gift toward Campaign 3SIXTY was earmarked for the Nancy and Skippy Weinstein Inpatient Hospice and Palliative Care Center and the Head Family Inpatient Psychiatric and Behavioral Health Center.
Previously, the Lucianos earmarked $1 million to areas such as the Sameth Emergency Department expansion and the Campaign for the Heart, which helped to finance the construction of Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute.
Residents of Convent Station for almost 50 years, they changed their permanent residence to Florida in 2010. They continue to spend summers in New Jersey, however, and still refer to Morristown as their hometown hospital.
Now with children and grandchildren in the area, Mrs. Luciano says: “I like to know there’s a first-rate medical facility available if they need it.”
