BENEFITING: WESTCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: WESTCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION
I am proud to say I have been a nurse at Westchester Medical Center for 17 years. I have had the pleasure of working in several units throughout the hospital over the years and I am currently working in the PACU.
Growing up, I was a middle distance runner on my high school track team. I ran on and off throughout adulthood. After I had my twins, I went to the Philadelphia Marathon to cheer on my husband. I planned to pace him the first few miles to get him started. I ended up running the whole half marathon without training. I have always wanted to do a full marathon myself.
As an employee at Westchester Medical Center, I have done everything I can to work hard and be a good representative for the hospital. I am excited to do that outside the hospital on the roads of New York showing people outside the Westchester area that we are the premier provider of advanced medical care in New York’s Hudson Valley region.
Westchester Medical Center, the flagship of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, is an 895-bed academic hospital located in Valhalla, New York, providing local residents with acute care services - Level I trauma and burn care, organ transplants and advanced neurovascular procedures and more - found nowhere else in the region. Westchester Medical Center is the primary referral facility for other hospitals in the Hudson Valley and serves as a lifeline for more than 3.5 million people.
Thank you for your support of our patients at Westchester Medical Center.
