Last weekend, Nancy Whipple donated #Easter dinner & Easter baskets to the patients & families in our Pediatric BMT Unit in memory of her son, Alexander the Great. Nancy spent many holidays in the hospital with Alexander, and knows how difficult it can be. Thank you, Nancy!
Due to the #MeaslesOutbreak, doctors at @southnassau say you can give babies and children the vaccine at an earlier schedule:
Measles Shots Available On Earlier Schedule Due To Epidemic
Religious holidays are around the corner, children are off from school and many are traveling.
Build healthy habits into your routine: If work life tends to crowd out your social life, make changes and book regular dinner dates with your favourite people. If you’re a social butterfly but also a couch potato, carve out time for daily walks or other workouts with a friend.
Every day, we rely on the experience, dedication and organizational skills of our talented administrative professionals to keep the hospital running smoothly. THANK YOU for everything you do for our patients and our Medical Center! #AdministrativeProfessionalsDay
