Jean Lavin, RN
I’m Jean Lavin and I’m going the distance for pediatric patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.
I’m truly honored to run the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon for the incredible pediatric patients and dedicated staff who I have the honor of working with each day.
Here at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, I work as a pediatric cardiology nurse clinician, and I am proud to have been a member of the WMCHealth team for 29 years. I like to say that “I grew up here” and I’ve had the opportunity to see and be inspired by the wonderful, lifesaving work of our physicians and nurses and to help patients and families understand and navigate complex and difficult cardiac diagnoses. Nothing is more gratifying than seeing patients and families get well, leave the hospital, and go on to celebrate life’s happy moments like graduations and weddings – some of which I’ve been honored to be a part of.
I live in Somers, NY, with my two daughters and I’ve been a runner for 10 years. I ran my first NYC Marathon in 2015, and I’m looking forward to running my second – this time in support of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital through the Westchester Medical Center Foundation – in November. I appreciate your support in my journey.
Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital is the children’s hospital for New York’s Hudson Valley region and Fairfield County, Connecticut. Located in Valhalla, NY, this 136-bed advanced pediatric facility cares for the region’s most seriously ill and injured children including those in need of cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, hematology and oncology treatments, organ transplants and other specialty pediatric services. Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital is also home to the area’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Level I pediatric trauma and burn care programs and its Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Thank you for your support of our pediatric patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
