“Sueyun supports Pennsylvania Hospital in many ways and has over a number of years,” said PAH Executive Director R. Michael Buckley. “She is a valued member of our Board of Managers, a strong neighborhood voice for our hospital and its programs, and generously opens her gallery to us for events. Her advice and counsel have been valuable to me in my relatively new role, and we are all fortunate to have Sueyun as part of our Pennsylvania Hospital family.”
Sueyun has served as director of the Locks Gallery of Washington Square since 1987, and publisher of Locks Art Publications since 1990. With her husband, Gene, Sueyun has generously supported several initiatives at PAH including an endowed Neurosurgery professorship and the preservation of the historic Pine Building.
