Andrew L. Pecora, M.D., president of Physician Services and chief innovations officer at Hackensack Meridian Health, received the Rosemarie J. Sorce Endowed Chair in Innovation at Hackensack Meridian Health. The award is in honor of his lifetime achievements in medicine, including cancer research and treatment. The award, which includes a grant for more than $2 million from Mrs. Sorce, the first vice chair of the Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center Board of Governors, is also designed to further Dr. Pecora’s work in moving cancer treatment toward a cure. The Inaugural Endowed Chair event was recently held at the 21 Club in New York City to celebrate Dr. Pecora and Mrs. Sorce.
