Albany, N.Y. >> A Saratoga Springs family on Wednesday made a $2.5 million donation to Albany Medical Center to see that the hospital’s two-year-old Cleft-Craniofacial Center continues its work.
The gift from the Moser family — Robert, Lisa, Carson, 9, and Emery, 7 — was given to Dr. Oluwaseum Adetayo, the area’s only pediatric plastic surgeon, and the center. The multi-million donation will allow Adetayo and her team serve more children from the region who are born with cleft, cranial, and facial abnormalities.
In a brief ceremony on the hospital’s pediatric wing, Lisa Moser, speaking for the family, described Adetayo as a miracle worker who changes people’s lives.
“We are the ones who are honored to play a small part in a program that will transform the lives of many children annually and will continue to do so for many years to come,” she said.
The Mosers are natives of the Capital Region. Robert is a graduate of Queensbury High School and Union College. He is a real estate developer and owner of Prime Group Holdings. His wife is a graduate of Hudson Falls High School and Siena College.
Lisa Moser said she and her husband began funding cleft organizations globally after learning about Medical Missions for Children. When they learned of the Cleft-Craniofacial Center at Albany Med they reached out to get involved in a way that would not be a “one-off.”
“When you spend five minutes with any doctors in this field, you understand,” Lisa Moser said. “If you see a child with cleft it breaks your heart.”
