Standing O is at it Again!
Hip, hip, hooray to the more than 755 employees who were honored at Interfaith Medical Center for their service and dedication to the hospital on Dec. 14, including two that have been at the medical center for more than 50 years. “Interfaith is its people. This hospital’s proud past and strong future has and will continue to be shaped by its loyal and hardworking employees. They have shown their unwavering commitment to our patients and the Bed-Stuyesant and Crown Heights community through some of our most challenging times,” said LaRay Brown, chief executive officer and president. The ceremony honored employees who have served the center from five to 50 years. Chairwoman Diane Porter presented the two longest recipients with a free cruise on the Queen Mary. Employee Elijah Lindsay, a 50-year veteran at the hospital said, “I joined the team at Interfaith Medical Center over fifty years ago. I have been through many transitions in leadership and have seen health care delivery transform over the years. I am proud to be a part of the family at Interfaith, and under Ms. Brown’s leadership, believe we are headed in the right direction. We faced a lot of hardship over the past couple of years, but this year marks a new beginning at Interfaith Medical Center.” Standing O says thank you to all the employees and wishes Mr. Lindsay a very enjoyable trip.
