I was brought to the Hospital after falling and suffering injuries to my face and hip. The bleeding would not stop because I am on blood thinners. The staff in the ICU, including techs Nicolette and Jayrise, Jeanne, the overnight nurse, and especially Lena, who looked after me during the day, were great. I also want to commend Physician Assistant Jen Niz. She took the time to explain what was happening to me and really helped me understand my injuries. May God bless them all!

Dr. Carol Lederman performed Strabismus eye surgery on me on Nov. 6th. Dr. Lederman is one of the best surgeons, very professional and thorough. Her staff is top notch, very organized and helped me prepare for my surgery. If you need a good Ophthalmologist, she is excellent! Also, from the moment I arrived at White Plains Hospital, the level of car exhibited by the staff was the best. The nurses that helped prepare me prior to my operation were equally kind and supportive. Once I arrived in the recovery room I was treated very well, with love and support. I highly recommend White Plains Hospital for your medical needs.

On April 19, at 47 years of age, I was diagnosed with stage one tongue cancer. I was in no way prepared for this. I’d just moved to New York and started my dream job as CEO and President of a company. I was devastated, not to mention we were in the middle of a pandemic!  I didn’t see how things could get much worse at this point in time.
 
My treatment was 35 sessions of radiation and 7 rounds of chemotherapy. I was literally scared for my life. My first trip to the Cancer Center changed everything. I met my Angel, Toni Ann Zukowski, the one person who would get me through the most horrifying thing I had ever done in my life!
I am beyond blessed to be through treatment and finally starting to feel better. Toni Ann was my biggest blessing. She and I connected. She had a way about her that made me know everything would be okay.  She talked me through everything from the very first day. She was honest and told me it was going to be the hardest thing I ever had to do, but she would help me through it.
 
Toni Ann cared about me getting well. She made me smile every time I went for chemo. We talked about our families and became friends. She coached me when times were bad and comforted me when I was upset. In the end, I got so sick I had to be in the hospital for several days. Who came to see me to cheer me up? Yes, Toni Ann! She is simply the most incredible person God put on the planet and is the perfect cancer nurse. When I go back for checkups I always go early and make sure I get to see her. There is no one more deserving of recognition or praise at White Plains Hospital than Toni Ann.

I would like to tell you about my experience at White Plains Hospital. My husband, Roger, who has liver cancer, was at the Emergency Room on September 28, 2020. His ammonia level was elevated and his blood pressure and potassium levels were very low. They admitted him and he was discharged on October 8.
 
From the visit to the emergency room right through his discharge, everyone was professional and caring.  One of the nurses that stood out was Eli. He kept me informed about what was going on and how critical Roger was. Since Roger’s condition was getting worse, I elected to have him put in palliative care. There I met with social workers Cyndee O'Brien, Christine, and Linley Leone. They explained our options and were understanding of my difficult situation. I can't thank them enough for helping me through the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make.
 
Roger was moved to the 5th floor and made very comfortable. I met nurses Brianna, Ashley and Shervon, who were always available, pleasant, and answered any question I had. Jorge, the tech, became my husband’s "buddy." He was always pleasant. He took such good care of him and made him feel relaxed. 
Working with Linley and Christine, I made the decision to move my husband to Rosary Hill. I don't think this would have been possible without their help. I also want to thank Dr. Roayaie and Dr. Burshteyn, along with the office staff, for their expertise and caring nature. I also want to give a shout out to the valets. Unfortunately, in the mist of my husband being ill, I had foot surgery. As I pulled up to the valet, the supervisor and Will were ready for me with a wheelchair and brought me into the lobby. There I met a lovely and attractive hostess who was so kind we became friends.
 
All the employees at the Hospital are lucky to be working in such a fantastic place. I spoke with many of the employees, who said they were very happy to be working at WPH. You don't often get such a positive response from employees, so whatever you’re doing to keep you employees happy, it's working. Value your employees because they deserve it. I hope all the staff at WPH have a safe and happy holiday season!

My husband was admitted to the Hospital with Alzheimer’s disease and was also experiencing seizures. Dr. Rashmi Dubey was his physician and helped stabilize him in about a week. Dr. Dubey advised us that it was in my not in my husband’s best interest to return to the assisted living facility, but be sent to Calvary Hospital for hospice care. I cannot begin to thank her enough for her advice. He got excellent care and lived 11 months longer. Dr. Dubey exhibited professionalism, intuitiveness, and caring throughout my husband’s stay in the Hospital, and I will be forever grateful to her. She made my husband’s last days a journey filled with caring people.

My dad has been a patient on 5i for nearly a week now. The staff’s care, support and professionalism is amazing and deeply appreciated. Dad is about to turn 98. His infection seemed to come out of nowhere and was very painful. Benson, Samantha, Anu, Nicole, Marie and all the staff have been wonderful helping my dad, brother and I navigate through all the necessary decisions. ‘They are treating me royally!’ Dad said to me today. I could not be more grateful to everyone.

I wanted to take the time to thank your Maternal and Child Health Department, beginning with your technicians, nurses and, in particular, Dr. Joel, Dr. Bávaro, Dr. Giannone, Dr. Fouany, Dr. Barnhard, and Dr. Stella. Not only was I a pregnant patient but I am also a registered nurse at your organization in the labor and delivery unit. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a travel ban was placed and my husband, who is currently an airman in the Air Force stationed in Belgium, was unable to visit me here in New York and I was unable to travel to see him.

I had some complications during the early stages of my pregnancy, but I must say that Dr. Stella In your Perinatology Department was knowledgeable, compassionate, and very thorough with all her assessments. At my regular check up at 36 weeks, I was sent from the office to the Hospital for a pre-eclampsia checkup. I ended up getting admitted, and with my husband being away it was a very scary time for me. Dr. Joel and the rest of the team were quick to identify my problem, formulate a plan of care, and we’re extremely supportive. Being on the other side of the equation showed me how great our nurses and doctors are! This has been a stressful time for our family, but I can honestly say that I couldn’t have been in better hands.

My husband was given military permission to travel and see me, but as my blood pressure continued to increase I knew there was a chance he might miss my delivery. Although, I was stable on admission, I became more swollen and my blood pressures kept increasing. Suddenly my baby’s heart rate started getting tachycardia and her fetal heart rate tracing wasn’t as reactive. Dr. Joel was quick to make a decision and she proceeded with an emergent cesarean section at 36 weeks. Although my husband was not with me during delivery, I had the support of my second family - my work family. My baby was born on July 17th at 10:43pm, weighing 7lbs 3 oz., was 19.5 inches long and with a head full of hair! I couldn’t feel any more blessed.

I started to have a placental abruption, but my doctor took care of it before it became a big emergency. This is why I chose to deliver at White Plains Hospital and why I chose to work there as well.  I couldn’t have gotten through this pandemic without my co-workers and their ongoing support, recommendations, and exemplary care. Through my experience as a patient, I was able to see firsthand how the nurses and doctors at our organization are making a difference for all our patients. I am not used to being the patient and I take great pride in working for an organization that prioritizes patient care and patient experience!

My husband landed in New York the next day and our family was finally reunited after being apart for five months! White Plains Hospital is more than my workplace, it’s my family. I haven’t felt alone during this pregnancy and even though working during the COVID-19 crisis was an adjustment, my co-workers always looked out for me! I would also like to praise the following nurses: Jenny Cartica, Avril Johnson, Erin Lachapelle, Melissa Morales, Aimee Rich, Mary O’Connor, Both Kelly’s from 6F, Mary from 6F, and Ashley from 6F. Their bedside manner is admirable and they have a special way of comforting anxious moms to be and new moms, which I find very reassuring during these trying times. Thank you again for everything! And I would also like to thank the unit managers Bonnie Thompson, Mara Persico, Claudia Colantonio, Caitlin To, and our Director, Romina Hipolito, for checking in on me and making sure I had everything I needed during my antepartum, delivery, and postpartum period.

I live in Poughkeepsie, but I traveled down to White Plains Hospital for my spinal fusion surgery because Dr. Jared Brandoff came so highly recommended.  I was surprised at the level of care and kindness I received at every point during my stay at White Plains Hospital. The nurses, techs and cleaning staff checked on me regularly, asking if I needed anything. I have had other procedures, including back surgery, at other hospitals and my stay at WPH was a better experience than I could have hoped for.
 
Due to the nature of my recovery, I stayed four days and three nights under the care of your amazing staff.  I was treated well at every instance and felt at ease, even though I really dislike hospitals in general. I was even checked on by Merin Aby, the Nurse Manager Nancy Longworth, the Assistant Director. Every person I list below should get special recognition from White Plains Hospital for going above and beyond their job requirements in my care:
 
Nurses: Therese, Miracle and Karthika
Techs: Noel, Sabrina, Erin, Jennifer, Kayla, Jose
Cleaners: Rub and Rosa
Night Nursing Leader: Gente
 
My apologies if I missed anyone. I also had good physical therapists too, but I felt compelled to share my experience at White Plains Hospital and I have already spoken to over a hundred people (friends, family, fraternities, employees) about my exceptional stay there. White Plains Hospital is a well-run organization. I think it has to do with the culture that I saw fostered by your Assistant Director of Nursing and your Nurse Manager.

I was recently admitted to White Plains Hospital, where I spent 10 days on 5F under the care of the magnificent nurses, doctors and technicians. From the moment I entered the Hospital I sensed a general pride among its staff. Everyone was caring, efficient, and attentive. It was a difficult time but had it not been for the nursing staff and doctors on 5F, I don't know if I would have been able to endure the long hours I was there. Nurses Mary Watters and Kelly Castro took extremely good care of me during my time on the floor, but all of the nurses were phenomenal. The attending doctors, Howlette, Yue, and Gendler, were available daily and took their time when they saw me.  I can't say enough about these fine professionals that helped me during a really difficult time. I am forever grateful to them for helping me with my recovery. I consider White Plains Hospital one of the premier health facilities in New York.

I was admitted to White Plains Hospital on Sunday, July 26th with transient amnesia, and spent the night and much of the next day under your care.

I want to thank them, as well as nurses Maria, Martiza and Kelly on the fifth floor, along with techs Maddy, Dane and Jorje. Also the doctor and the techs in the cardiac test area. Everyone was competent, kind and helpful in speeding my recovery and prompt discharge. Thank you!

My six-month-old daughter, Anjali, fell at home on Friday night, June 12th.  We were distraught when we came to the emergency room because of the COVID-19 restrictions, which would allow only one parent to be with her. I was with her, and it was very difficult for my husband and older daughter not to be there with Anjali while she was so distressed.  Dr. Catherine Kelly had a calm, kind demeanor and was understanding of our situation. She took the time to speak with my husband on the phone more than once to provide him clinical updates and plans for Anjali. I am so grateful to her for her willingness to take extra time during a busy Friday night to alleviate our fears and anxieties about our baby, especially since we were not all able to be there in person

Thank you for everyone’s continuous prayers during the jarring and beleaguered times my family went through. I am so relieved that my 97-year-old grandmother, a COVID-19 patient, was recently discharged from White Plains Hospital! 

They took such amazing care of her! I can’t thank your staff enough. They spoke with me over the phone every day, answering my endless questions and explaining every minute detail. They even gave me the opportunity to connect with my grandmother through FaceTime. She is no longer tenuous, lethargic, or showing severe COVID-19 symptoms like she did before!  She is slowly but surely getting better. Keep on keeping on. This too shall pass and we will ALL get through this!

I am so grateful to have found Dr. Caroline Stella and the Maternal Fetal Medicine team at White Plains Hospital. As a patient with a history of severe preeclampsia, I was a bit nervous going into the birth of my second child. Dr. Stella could not have been a more supportive and helpful guide during the nine months prior to the delivery, during my hospital stay, and while navigating postpartum issues after I was discharged. She was always available to answer questions and share her seemingly infinite medical knowledge. Dr. Stella is undoubtedly the most attentive and caring physician I've encountered in my lifetime. The attention I received regarding both my health and general well-being has been akin to what I'd expect from a doctor who was a relative or old friend. She also has fantastic taste in books and provides great recommendations.
 

My daughter, Ruby, was delivered via C-section just as COVID-19 began hitting Westchester. I was blown away by the quality of care I received not only from Dr. Stella, but by all the healthcare professionals I encountered during my time at White Plains Hospital. My deepest thanks to the incredible Labor and Delivery nurses who took such great care of me: Kathryn, Aleks, Anna and Sara, and the champion NICU nurses who took care of Ruby: Betsy, Vanessa, and Melissa. Based on their professionalism and positive demeanor, I would never have known there was a terrifying, life-threatening pandemic unfolding in real-time during my stay in the Hospital. Thank you so much for reminding me that not all heroes wear capes.

My husband and I just called 4E to ask to relay a message to my Aunt Rena. A lovely nurse named Jessica suggested doing FaceTime. Jessica graciously and patiently helped us connect to FaceTime. Rena seemed to be asleep and nonresponsive to my eye, but we said we loved her and were thinking of her. We also sent love from other family members. 
Jessica was so caring and kind. She said she would hold Rena's hand for us, and we saw her doing it. She said multiple times in a very warm way that the Hospital was taking good care of her. She was lovely and gracious.
Chantal, another nurse on either 4E or 4I, also did a FaceTime session for us the other day. She was also caring and patient.
We are so incredibly appreciative of the care and compassion these and other staff members are exhibiting. It would be appreciated and meaningful even under normal circumstances, but it is awe-inspiring and profound in this extraordinary situation.
You are making such a meaningful impact in more ways than I can say.

Dr. James Peacock is truly a rarity. He is kind and compassionate. He genuinely cares for each patient like they are family. Being 25 years old, I was pretty scared during the process of finding out I had an arrhythmia. Dr. Peacock always makes sure to help me feel safe, and lets me ask him a million questions. I am grateful for his patience. I never feel like I cannot contact him if there is anything that I need. When it came to my procedures (EP study in 2019, and cardiac ablation in 2020) he did everything to make me feel comfortable and well taken care of. He understood how nervous I was but he held my hand through it twice now. The only promise a doctor can make is to do what they can, and I know that Doctor Peacock will always do his best. I am grateful for him, and really lucky to be under his care.
 

I am also really grateful to his staff and his nurses, including the two teams that were with me through both surgeries. They have all been so kind, caring, and uplifting. Each nurse that I have worked with has always made me laugh and feel at home, which is everything one could ask for. Sometimes laughter and comfort is truly the best medicine. Thank you all so very much for being amazing.

Jenny eventually even got my baby to smile. We are so grateful to her and all the staff.

I want to say thank you to everyone at White Plains Hospital, from the valets who always greeted me with a smile, to the workers in the cafeteria who always told me things would get better. Thank you as well to every doctor, nurse, and tech that filled me in every day on my husband's care, and to the social workers who kept me posted as to what I’d need and what were our next steps would be. My husband and I have been coming to White Plains Hospital for over 30 years and wouldn't go anyplace else. 
 

This last trip to the Hospital was a very long one, but I got to know so many wonderful people. Every Sunday I would bring the floor a treat of bagels for breakfast and made sure to have some for the night staff as well. We developed a bond with the staff on 4F, and when my husband needed to be in the ICU they would stop by to check on him and see if I needed anything.
After almost two months of ups and downs, my husband passed away this Saturday very peacefully. The kindness and compassion we received made a difficult time easier.  Thank you, 4F and thank you to the rest of the White Plains Hospital staff.

I had to have a breast Imagining exam and an ultrasound done prior to breast surgery to remove a cancerous growth. I had a biopsy done a month before at another facility, which diagnosed the cancerous growth, and the injection they gave me was extremely painful. When I realized I had to endure another breast procedure involving a needle I became very anxious and started to hyperventilate. The nurse, Alicia Steele, and ultrasound technician, Kristen Posimato, calmed me down. When Dr. Glass entered the room, they relayed my fears to her. Dr. Glass was very professional and told me I was going to be fine. Ms. Steele actually held my hand during the procedure and it wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be.
Honestly, I couldn’t have done that procedure without those two compassionate women who supported me. I was very fortunate to have such a caring staff in my time of need. Since it was the beginning of a long journey to becoming well, their encouragement meant a lot to me.

I went to the emergency room on December 26th for an emergency appendectomy.  The ER nurse, Ria, was awesome.  She was super nice, professional, knowledgeable, and really ran the show there. She explained everything really well and hustled to get us into surgery so that we were in and out in less than 24 hours.  Christina, the night nurse, and the day nurse were excellent as well, and Dr. Zemon was very pleasant and reassuring.  Everyone we encountered, from the valet to the security guard, to the cleaning people and other staff, were dedicated and supportive.

I was admitted into the hospital on the fifth floor back on November 5, 2019. Upon my arrival around 10:00 p.m. I was immediately greeted by my nurse and tech and was attended to until I was made comfortable in my bed. I was in a lot of pain, which was made more manageable by the nursing staff. The care I received for the next 9 days was above and beyond the call of duty. To name a few nurses that I remember that I would like to thank: Kelly, Carol, Nick, Kate, Liliana, Stephanie and Meg from the IV team. They were the best nurses I have had the pleasure of dealing with in my 49 years of life. Not only were they professional, they showed compassion and treated me like I was family. The environmental services people, the food service people, the transporters and the physical therapists that walked with me countless times around the unit should also be commended for their work. Your nurses worked together as a team and were able to defuse any situation that look like it was might get out of hand. The cleanliness of the rooms the bathrooms and the entire floor that I was on made me feel very comfortable and at home.
I would like to thank every one that was part of my recovery for a job well done. I will always use White Plains hospital for my health care needs and I will pass the word on to my friends and neighbors about your excellent care.

Thank you for all for making a really scary parental experience much less scary.

We went to WPH for a scheduled eye surgery for my two year-old daughter. It was nerve-racking to think about and even more so once you step foot into the hospital. My husband and I were impressed with the staff from admission through recovery. Everyone took a minute to address our daughter directly, with a little joke or sweet comment about her, and were all courteous, professional and efficient. We were especially taken with the pediatric anesthesiologist, whom was probably the second most important person to us after the surgeon. Dr. Chen was warm, patient, and informative and put both us and our daughter at ease pretty quickly. He sang with me while sedating my daughter, which is one of the scariest experiences I’ve ever had, and left us all feeling confident and assured about her safety and health. Thank you for all for making a really scary parental experience much less scary.

 WE had wonderful nurses and doctors...

​My father went into the ER on two separate occasions, April 12th and April 29th.  He had gangrene his toe, which is why we initially went in and he stayed about a week and then went into nursing care for IV antibiotics for osteomyelitis.  While in nursing care, his picc line came out so we went back to have it replaced.  WE had wonderful nurses and doctors both times, I was very impressed at the speed with which he had his blood drawn, had X-rays and was seen by a doctor.  Unfortunately, the first time I didn't record names, but I think one nurse was named Aneesa?  The second time, I wrote down Lorna MacFarlane, who was wonderful with my dad.  Dr. Bregman was AMAZING.  I had to leave to tend to my own children and I felt awful leaving my father there alone.  Dr. Bregman called me TWICE to let me know what was going on.  He also called Dr Ha, who had originally seen my father for this infection.  The ER was busy both days we were there, but the care we received did not take long, nor was it hurried.

​I’m writing to express my gratitude for the treatment my wife received while she was in your hospital.

On Thursday 4/18 my wife, Sheila Palmesi was transferred to your CCU from Northern Westchester Hospital, mainly for the reputation of your Cath lab. She was on a ventilator due to anaphylaxis/angioedema which also caused a possible heart issue.
The treatment that she and our family received while she was there was beyond outstanding. Nurse David and Nurse Chrissy went above and beyond to keep her as comfortable as possible and keep us informed even at the end of a long shift.  Dr Hani and Dr Matejak took their time with us and answered all of our questions. There were many more people – Dr’s, Nurses, Tech’s, Pa’s and others, names of which I can’t remember, that were all equally as good. 
A trying and stressful time for us was made bearable by your fantastic staff and they should all be commended.  Thankfully, Sheila is well on the road to recovery. 

Thanks Again
Richard Palmesi and Family

Whether it was a small chat, checking on my well-being, or administering medication, the care provided was nothing short of exceptional.

I was recently admitted into your hospital for a possible cardiac-related event. I was placed on 4F and was truly lucky enough to be assigned the following nurses: Vanetta and Mike.  In addition, Vanetta was training Jessica, during the day.  I was truly astounded by all three, who were extremely attentive and exhibited the utmost professionalism at all times. I would be remiss to not mention Bruce as well who was their Tech.  As a first responder with almost 30 years of experience, it truly amazed me the energy and devotion that these individuals share with their patients.  Whether it was a small chat, checking on my well-being, or administering medication, the care provided was nothing short of exceptional. Thank you so much!

From the moment I arrived until being discharged from the hospital 7 days later, I had the best of care I could possibly imagine.  

​I came to the White Plains Hospital Emergency Department suffering tremendous pain in my stomach, later to find out it was diverticulitis.  From the moment I arrived until being discharged from the hospital 7 days later, I had the best of care I could possibly imagine.  I fully expected that the ER would be busy and hectic, but every single person I met treated me with kindness, respect, courtesy and personal dignity.  When you are suffering pain and you are not sure what is going to happen next, knowing that the people around you - strangers - are treating you so well is incredibly reassuring and calming.

We were overwhelmed with the kindness, professionalism, knowledge and expertise of the entire staff.  

From the emergency room staff,  dozens of Dr.'s, surgeons, nurses, orderlies, MRI techs, x-ray doctors, food service, valet parking attendants, patient advocate representatives, and poets (yes, we even had a staff member distribute poems to help us through our stay) etc. We were overwhelmed with the kindness, professionalism, knowledge and expertise of the entire staff.  We were treated with dignity, respect, had immediate access to information and comfort during an otherwise difficult time.  The facilities have been beautifully re-designed with a mindfulness to make people comfortable during their stay. 
Dr. Casden was fantastic.  He was extremely patient, informative and did an amazing job.   The nurses were caring, attentive, cheerful and extremely competent.   You guys are doing a terrific job - keep it up!!  P.S. best of all, my wife is making a speedy recovery.

I had the most amazing team taking care of my health!

I was hospitalized on July 2, 2016. I went to WPH because my instinct told me I will receive the care.. I was very sick and at some point I truly did not realize the severity of my condition. I was septic and at that moment I was fighting for my life. The doctors told me I was lucky to have survived such severe infection. I had the most amazing team taking care of my health. Dr. Zeitlin and Dr. Kahan were amazing! They truly saved my life and I cannot ever put into words how thankful I am for everything they did for me. I hold them dear to my heart and in my prayers all the time! Because of them I am alive today and I am able to continue raising my 4 young daughters. They were so caring and put all their experience to help me get better. My case was complicated but they were able to help me get through that difficult health experience. My instinct was right when I chose WPH! Everyone was on top of my health, the entire team was amazing! Thank you everyone and I cannot ever re-pay you for giving me my life back!

Everybody that works there make White Plains Hospital the best choice for your health needs care

I had a mammogram with ultrasound as well as a pelvic ultrasound at your facility. I just want to express my gratitude to Caroline McGrath (ultrasound department) for her caring and professional attitude towards my issue. She was respectful, kind and compassionate. I want to also mention Jessica (ultrasound mammo) the tech that did my mammogram and the lady at the lobby, Ellen Finn.
On that day I had a little time between appointments so I went to the lobby and sat down on a comfortable chair; I was a little nervous, but just by sitting down I was surrounded by beautiful designs, a giant window where I could see people pass, the warm sun entering the room and the 3D butterflies on the wall behind me...somehow all those details made my wait very enjoyable. Everybody that works there from the valet parking (excellent service) to the cleaning employees, volunteers, techs, nurses and doctors make White Plains Hospital the best choice for your health needs care. Thank you!

I am writing to share my deepest appreciation for your staff at the Labor & Delivery and Maternity departments. 

I had a long labor (induction) and ultimately a C-section. The nurses, technicians and other staff were simply incredible and made a scary and difficult birth much more bearable. I would like to commend them for their immense care and professionalism. The care I received at your facility made all the difference in a difficult birth.

I am not used to being in a hospital but I can tell this place is special. I wanted to acknowledge the good job everyone is doing and just say thank you!

I am a young, 20 year old college graduate with a high stress job in the in NYC. After starting full time I began to notice my stomach was not feeling well, fairly frequently. Under the instruction of my GI doctor I reported to White Plains Hospital for an Endoscopy and Gastric Emptying Study. I mentioned my age to help you understand why my mom would have accompanied me. As you might imagine she was very nervous although this was "routine" stuff. The nurses Macharlie, Janet, & Sue were outstanding! These women are clearly seasoned professionals. They went out of their way to keep us informed, comfortable and without fear. One of the nurses even hugged my mom to ensure her everything would be fine. In fact every single person from the front desk security guard, to the entire staff, plus Lee and Frank in Nuclear Medicine were excellent to us. I am not used to being in a hospital but I can tell this place is special. I wanted to acknowledge the good job everyone is doing and just say thank you!

I couldn't thank everyone enough for making my hospital stay and surgery recovery a positive experience!

In February 2018, I was diagnosed with appendicitis and needed to have emergency surgery at White Plains Hospital.
My surgeon, Dr. Charny and his team, the nurses and other staff members made me feel at ease.
I couldn't thank everyone enough for making my hospital stay and surgery recovery a positive experience. I'm grateful for my nurses who took care of me (special thanks to the 5th Floor Pediatrics Unit!) and cheered me up. Also, the food service staff was more than accommodating and made sure I had my chicken soup and rolls, since I couldn't indulge in the other delicious meal options at the time. You guys helped me get through this stressful time and I'm recovering well.

The White Plains Hospital staff from greeting, to admitting, and patient intake was friendly and supportive of our situation from arrival through departure.  

Today, my petrified 9 year old was soothed by 2 darling nurses, Daisy and Stacy.  My daughter had to give 9 vials of blood and had 2 prior bad experiences at two other hospitals.  Daisy and Stacy were absolutely wonderful at calming a hysterical child and effectively drawing the blood without any pain.   They spoke to my child calmly and with respect and patience as they distracted her with positive conversation and supportive encouragement.  My daughter was so thankful and so was I.  We could not have done it without the support of Daisy and Stacy.  Additionally, the White Plains Hospital staff from greeting, to admitting, and patient intake was friendly and supportive of our situation from arrival through departure.  They surely turned our frowns upside down!
