NORRISTOWN — A $7.5 million gift from the Karabots Foundation and Nicholas and Athena Karabots to Einstein Healthcare Network (EHN) was delivered Wednesday afternoon during a gala celebration under a white tent erected on Powell Street next to the newly renamed Nicholas and Athena Karabots Medical Building.
More than 150 physicians, nurses and top managers from EHN and Einstein Medical Center Montgomery (EMCM) came to celebrate the gift that benefits three buildings in the healthcare system.
“The first phase was cosmetic improvements to the common areas of the building including new carpet, paint, new lighting and ceiling tiles,” said Rich Montalbano, the project executive at Einstein Healthcare Network. “That was completed this winter. The second and third phases will occur over the next two years and include replacing the outdated central air conditioning systems and replacing the two elevators.”
