Joanne Fernandez, MD
I’m Joanne Fernandez, MD, and I’m going the distance for patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.
I am a second year pediatric resident at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and I’m honored to run the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon to help support the pediatric patients that I serve.
I started dabbling in running in 2007 and became a more serious runner in 2015. When I run the 26.2 miles on November 6, I will complete my first marathon and I’m proud to be able to tell my patients “I did it for you.”
Originally from Brooklyn, I now live in Valhalla. Outside of work, I enjoy running for personal enjoyment and am involved with the New York City Road Runners organization. I am the first person in my family to run a marathon.
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.
I appreciate your support as I go the distance for our pediatric patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
