On May 17, 2016, Bishop William Murphy gathered with oncologists, nurses, administrators and members of The Miracle Foundation to commemorate the 10 Year Anniversary of the ribbon cutting of The M.I.R.A.C.L.E. Foundation Pavilion at Mercy Hospital. This facility was a dream of the late Michael J. Tenaglia, to whom the building was dedicated, as a way of bringing world class cancer care to fellow Long Islanders. Mr. Tenaglia did not live to see the realization of his dream but since its opening in December of 2005, this facility has benefitted over 100,000 Long Islanders annually, who are now able to receive local care at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Rockville Centre based campus. Present in this photo with Bishop Murphy are oncologists Dr. Kenneth Ng and Dr. Tiffany Troso-Sandoval, Miracle Foundation representatives Patti Tenaglia, James Costello and Alyssa Nightingale, Ron Steimel, Executive VP and CAO of Mercy Hospital and MSKCC employees Cheryl Haughie and Kerrie D’Aguilar.
