Attorney Brian Lee recently pledged $20,000 to help fund continuing education for emergency medicine personnel at Saratoga Hospital. The gift—to the hospital’s Brian Lee Law Firm Emergency Medicine Education Endowment Fund—is the latest example of Lee’s commitment to ensuring that residents of Saratoga County benefit from advances in emergency medical care.
Lee established the fund in 2011 with a gift of $15,000. His goal is to build an endowment that will help fund emergency medicine education for generations to come. Meanwhile, Lee has made additional gifts to meet current emergency medicine education needs. Because of his generosity, 20 nurses recently were able to earn their Certified Emergency Nurse certification. Others are enrolling in the Trauma Nursing Core Course.
The Brian Lee Law Firm represents persons injured in auto collisions and falls. Lee estimates that 80 percent of his clients who are involved in auto collisions are first treated for their injuries at Saratoga Hospital’s Alfred Z. Solomon Emergency Center.
“We’re interested in doing everything we can to ensure the best possible emergency care for our clients and for the community,” he said. “The sooner people get the correct diagnosis and receive the best urgent care, the faster they will recover.”
