Mount Sinai Queens Marks 15 Years of Service to the Astoria Community

ASTORIA – Staff and executives of Mount Sinai Queens recently celebrated 15 years of service to New York City’ second most populous borough at a special anniversary event under a tent on June near the construction site for a new, six-story building nearby.

The construction activity served “as a reminder of the many positive changes happening at Mount Sinai Queens,” a release noted.

Awards were handed out to Mount Sinai Queens staff and three EMS Person of the Year awards were also given to members of the New York City Fire Department’s EMS Division.

Councilmember Costa Constantinides spoke at the event and awarded the honorees City Council Certificates. Representatives from the offices of New York State Assembly member Aravella Simotas and New York State Senator Michael Gianaris, also presented the honorees with certificates.

“The growth of Mount Sinai Queens over the past 15 years is rivaled only by its accelerated progress over the last 15 months. The construction of our new state of the art building will allow us to expand our commitment to provide the best possible patient care and to continue earning consistent high marks on patient satisfaction surveys. We are very proud of the progress that Mount Sinai Queens has made in the past 15 years, and we have our hard working staff, who are being honored here today, to thank for that,” said Executive Director Caryn A. Schwab.

Nearly 100 guests joined Schwab and David Reich, MD, President of The Mount Sinai Hospital, who also provided welcome remarks. “The passion, dedication and team work that I witness day in and day out by our staff, are only a few of the reasons that we continue to grow and raise the bar for patient care in the city of New York,” Reich said.
