Last Thursday, hundreds of medical staff of Lenox Hill Hospital were treated to a day of celebration and appreciation for their exceptional and dedicated service to the residents of New York during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program began with the singing of the national anthem by Aron Gerstel and The Bridge Unity Band, led by international singers Ezzy Gluck and Levi Okunov. The staff of B&H Electronics then presented beautiful gifts to all the staff.
The entrance to Lenox Hill Hospital, 100 East 77 St., was full of music, dancing and happiness as hundreds of Upper East Side residents came to join in the day of appreciation. Mark Appel, one of the volunteers, was enchanted by the emotional energy of the community.
“Seeing hundreds of the medical staff dancing with joy and happiness as Mew Yorkers join together to show gratitude to such angels bought sweet tears to all,” said Appel.
The nurses and medical staff were overwhelmed with joy, and stayed around for hours dancing and mingling with the volunteers of B&H as the program came to an end.
Joining the program were Martin Witriol and Simon Sebag from the office of Public Advocate Jumaane Williams (D), as well as hospital senior staff Peg Butler and Katie Greer.
A special thanks to the leadership of Northwell Health/Lenox Hill for leading and ensuring the best and compassionate health care to all patients during this viral pandemic.
