On Wednesday evening, local fire departments, EMS agencies, and first responders lined the arrival path and team entrance area during shift change at Northern Westchester Hospital (NWH) in a special tribute to show gratitude and support for the hospital’s heroic, dedicated doctors, nurses and staff.

The responders were joined by the hospital leadership team for the tribute to healthcare providers and staff at the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. All participants are encouraged to practice appropriate social distancing and wear masks.

Since NWH treated its first patient with coronavirus four weeks ago, it has cared for over 176 hospitalized, COVID-19- positive patients and hundreds more who came through the Emergency Department. It has discharged more than 67 patients who were hospitalized with the virus, and helped mothers, including some who are COVID positive, deliver healthy newborns.  NWH is also assisting colleagues at other Northwell hospitals, including Long Island Jewish Forest Hills and Valley Stream hospitals, which continue to see high surges.
