Retired Physicians Organization

Members of the Bensadon Society: Touro Infirmary Foundation's Physician-led Giving Society.

Congratulations on your retirement!

Thank you for your years of service to Touro and our community. We are excited to welcome you into the Retired Physicians Organization and Bensadon Society.

By joining Bensadon Society through the Retired Physicians Organization, you will receive numerous benefits as well as the opportunity to continue to engage with Touro Medical Staff, all while supporting our patients and community hospital.

Physician led philanthropy

The Bensadon Society is a philanthropic group of physicians with the same vision – patients come first. Named after Dr. Joseph Bensadon, Judah Touro’s personal physician and the first house surgeon at Touro, the Society exists to help further the mission of the Touro Infirmary Foundation and its reach and impact to our patients.

Physicians see first-hand the needs of our patient population. Whether it’s an updated unit or area that houses state-of-the-art technology that will provide advanced treatment for our patients, or vital equipment needed for care that our patients cannot afford, and that insurance will not cover, this Society allows a direct line to make a difference in the way care is delivered. Voting members of the Bensadon Society, decide on the philanthropic goals of the established fund and how best to utilize donations to impact Touro patients.
