HUNTINGTON - Islanders Hall of Famer Clark Gillies is opening his heart and his wallet to help expand Huntington Hospital.

The hospital is building a new state-of-the-art emergency department that would double its current capacity. Gillies' foundation is donating money for the pediatric emergency treatment area.

"It's a great moment in our foundation to be able to be part of the expansion here at the hospital,” says Gillies.
