LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Dr. Dong-Gi Hong upon the occasion of
his retirement after more than 40 years of distinguished service to the
Wayne County community

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to acknowledge the
significant milestones in the distinguished careers of esteemed resi-
dents of this noble Empire State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Dr.
Dong-Gi Hong upon the occasion of his retirement after more than 40
years of distinguished service to the Wayne County community; and
WHEREAS, A resident of Lyons, New York, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong has been a
member of the medical staff at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital since
1972; he was in private practice in Lyons until 1998 when he joined
Rochester General Medical Group; he has also worked as the medical
director of the DeMay Living Center in Newark; and
WHEREAS, Officially retiring on December 14, 2012, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong
has worked tirelessly to advance the standard of patient care as one of
the first internists in Wayne County; he is a native of Seoul, South
Korea, where he went to Yonsei University College of Medicine; and
WHEREAS, Having always aspired to be a doctor, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong worked
for three years in the South Korean Air Force and later came to the
United States in 1967; he did his residency at the University of Boston
Medical Center and then moved to Lyons because he wanted the challenge
of a rural practice and continued to make house calls long after it went
out of fashion; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong now plans to move to New Jersey and become a
medical volunteer for a large Korean church and travel with his wife,
Ae-Soon to Israel and Egypt, as well as spend quality time with other
family members; and
WHEREAS, For more than 40 years, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong rendered faithful,
conscientious and valuable service to the Wayne County community, earn-
ing the admiration, esteem and affection of his colleagues; and
WHEREAS, In his capacity as a medical doctor, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong served
with loyalty, honor and distinction, and was governed by a keen sense of
duty and always showed a unique grasp of human problems in his official
acts; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; and
WHEREAS, A true asset to society, Dr. Dong-Gi Hong's distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Dr. Dong-Gi Hong upon the occasion of his retirement after more
than 40 years of distinguished service to the Wayne County community;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Dr. Dong-Gi Hong.
