Hackensack, NJ, August 3, 2017 — Anjalee Khemlani reports in NJBIZ that Hackensack Meridian Health co-CEO Robert Garrett and his wife, Laura Garrett, have provided a $2.65 million gift in honor of the new Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine’s founding dean, Dr. Bonita Stanton.

Dr. Stanton was appointed to the Robert C. and Laura C. Garrett Endowed Chair for the School of Medicine Dean.

“Endowed chairs are among the highest honors conferred in academia, and the $15 million in support of endowments at Hackensack University Medical Center reinforces its role as one of the top-ranked academic medical centers in the country,” the health system said in a statement.

“Laura and I are thrilled to create this endowment to recognize the highest standards required in a leader of our medical school,” Garrett said.

“Dr. Stanton has practiced with distinction as a physician and academic, and will continue to bring the highest standards in medical education to the next generation of physicians,” Garrett said.

Stanton was recognized for her achievements in medical education and pediatric medicine — which include consulting with the World Bank, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
