Thanks to a $25,000 gift from The Wasiullah Family Foundation, a brand new Behavioral Health Community Resource Room is now open to the community at Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore.
Masood Wasiullah, MD, a family practice physician, started working at the hospital at the young age of 17 as an orderly. He remained there until he stopped seeing patients in 2014. Dr. Wasiullah’s wife and children were also born at the hospital. He says it has special meaning to his family and the entire community, and he wanted to give back.
“That’s the beauty of Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore, it’s a place you feel at home. And it’s one of few places offering inpatient behavioral health services. So this new room will help enhance that already exceptional care,” he explains.
