Cecily Strong to host gala event

 

The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) will honor Brian L. Roberts, chairman and CEO of Comcast Corporation, in celebration of his business accomplishments at the hospital’s 32nd Annual Tribute Dinner on Monday, June 1, 2015 at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York City.

 

The hospital will also present David L. Helfet, M.D., director of Orthopedic Trauma Service, with the Lifetime Achievement Award. For the past 30 years, Dr. Helfet has provided life-saving care to countless patients and has grown the Orthopedic Trauma Service at HSS into a world-renowned program.

 

Cecily Strong, cast member from Saturday Night Live, will host the black tie gala. Guests include esteemed political leaders, respected medical professionals and business executives as well as celebrities and athletes from the community.

 

“It is our pleasure to recognize the extraordinary business and civic achievements of Mr. Roberts, who has fostered excellence and innovation at Comcast,” said Louis Shapiro, president and CEO of Hospital for Special Surgery. “Innovation is valued here at the hospital as our vision is to lead the world as the most innovative source of medical care.”

 

“We have been honored to have Dr. Helfet as part of our team,” said Todd J. Albert, M.D., Surgeon-in-Chief and Medical Director at Hospital for Special Surgery. “He has shown incredible leadership in expanding our orthopedic trauma service and raising its awareness internationally. The hospital is very proud of all of his accomplishments and is honored to present him with the Lifetime Achievement Award.”

 

Brian L. Roberts

Mr. Roberts is the current chairman and CEO of Comcast Corporation. He joined the organization after graduating from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1981. Comcast’s annual revenue has grown exponentially under his leadership, beginning at $657 million when he was named President in 1990 to an annual revenue today of nearly $69 billion. Comcast is now a global Fortune 50 company with two primary businesses, Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal.

 

Mr. Roberts was recognized by Fortune magazine as “Businessperson of the Year” in 2012 and in 2015, was named one of America’s top CEOs by Institutional Investor magazine for the seventh time in a row.

 

Outside of professional accomplishments, he has also been recognized for his philanthropic work in education and technology. Mr. Roberts received the Ambassador for Humanity Award from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute as well as the Humanitarian Award from the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

 

Mr. Roberts is a member of Business Roundtable and has served on the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. He has also served as Chairman on the Board of Directors of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association as well as CableLabs, where he is now Director Emeritus.

 

A resident of Philadelphia, Mr. Roberts is an All-American in squash and has competed in the Maccabiah Games in Israel five times.

 

David L. Helfet, M.D.

Dr. Helfet is an orthopedic trauma surgeon and director of Orthopedic Trauma Service at Hospital for Special Surgery. In addition, he is a professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College and the director of the Orthopedic Trauma Service at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Helfet is annually ranked as one of New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors in New York” and Castle Connolly’s “America’s Top Doctors”.

 

Dr. Helfet is known both nationally and internationally for his expertise in orthopedic trauma. As such, he has served on the boards of the major orthopaedic/trauma societies, including as President of the National Orthopaedic Trauma Association. He has published over 250 papers in peer-reviewed journals and contributed to forty books on the topic. As the recipient of many honors and awards, such as the Philip D. Wilson Jr. Teaching Award, Dr. Helfet has received visiting lectureships including the Presidential Guest and Watson-Jones Memorial Lecture of the British Orthopedic Association.

 

Dr. Helfet often provides medical care to public safety individuals as the designated Orthopedic Trauma specialist for the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the New York State Police.

 

While he focuses on orthopedic trauma, Dr. Helfet also specializes in hip and is part of the Hip Preservation Service at HSS.

 

Dr. Helfet received his medical degree at the University of Cape Town Medical School in South Africa before completing his residency at Johns Hopkins University. He has held fellowships at University of Bern in Switzerland and University of California Los Angeles.

 

The event will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m. with a dinner to follow
