First Chairman of NHRMC Board of Trustees passes away

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington businessman, who played a pivotal role in the founding of New Hanover Regional Medical Center, has passed away.

Seymour Alper was 97 years old.

In 1960, Alper campaigned for passage of a bond issue to raise money for the construction of New Hanover Regional. The bond issue to build the hospital was passed, but voters turned down a second bond issue to provide operating funds. In 1967, Alper obtained a grant from the Duke Endowment to fund operations, and the hospital opened the same year.

Alper served on the Board of Trustees of New Hanover Memorial Hospital from 1961 until 1978, and he was its first Chairman.

Alper is survived by his wife Mildred, two children and five grandchildren.

A funeral will be held tomorrow at 11:30 am at B’nai Israel Synagogue at 2601 Chestnut Street with burial to follow in B’nai Israel Cemetery.
