Maxwell Kleet founded Kleet Lumber in Huntington in 1946. While building the family business, he and Hortense raised their twin boys in the village of Huntington. The business is now in the hands of Howard and Warren, who have also raised their own families in Huntington.
The hospital has seen tremendous growth since the twins’ birth, including eight physical expansions and countless program improvements. It is one of the top-ranked community hospitals in New York State.
The brothers recognize the value of Huntington Hospital to the community and its role as an emblem of local identity. It is one of the institutions that makes Huntington such a wonderful place to live.
