>>Title: Renew Sinai.>>Title: 6 new floors. 130,000 sq ft. Expansion of ambulatory programs for Women’s and Infants’ health>>Title: A comprehensive renovation and
reconfiguration of current clinical
and research spaces.>>Joseph Mapa: This is an exciting space
and there’s nothing more inspirational than growth for the organization,
there really isn’t. I have never seen and if you like it.
This has to be the most significant development we’ve
had as far as physical facilities in I would say the last twenty-five years. Hugely important for this organization. It is aspiring, enthusiastic, and it has so many benefits byproducts, that I can’t even describe.>>Dr. Shoo Lee: The facilities that we have here will be
second to none. This will be the most advanced NICU
anywhere in the country. and one of the most advanced in the world.
We are also embracing a new concept because in this new NICU instead of having
all the babies packed together like sardines in a room, each baby will have it’s own room. And the room will have facilities for the parents.
In other words the parents will like have a bed. They will have a locker.
They will have facilities where they can be as comfortable as if they
were in their own home. Babies required quite and require a comfortable place. and the parents require a comfortable place too.
So they can spend more time and valued time with their babies.
So overall I think this will be a
tremendous benefit to us not only in this hospital but it will be
building new models as we go forward that will benefit other people and the rest of the world.
So this is tremendously exciting for me. And this is one reason why I keep with
Sinai because I think that we are the leaders in many areas of health care.>>Lawrence Bloomber: We have unbelievable talent.
We’re now going to have new facilities. We’re gonna have a new equipment.
We’re gonna have probably the best Women’s Health, Child Health, neonatal facility probably in the world.>>Jen Cespi: Why am I here today? I’m here because Mount Sinai helped me to survive the worst day of my life
and also because this hospital made possible the greatest moments of joy I will ever know.>>Title: In 2003, Jen and husband, Claudio,
learned that the baby they were expecting was severely afflicted with Down Syndrome
and was not expected to live more than a few days…
Sadly he didn’t. Six months later, the couple suffered
another loss due to a miscarriage The physicians at Mount Sinai
consoled the couple and
encouraged them to try again.>>Jen Cespi: On August 17 2004 our son Mathew was born,
and he was joined by his sister Daniella on March 3rd, 2007. Our beautiful healthy children are the light of our
lives and there is frankly no way I could ever repay Mount Sinai for all this hospital has given us.
I have however been delighted to play a very small role in the with the
redevelopment and expansion the Women’s and Children’s Program that we celebrate today.
So if I return to my original question, “Why am I here?”
The answer is simple:
I’m here to say thank you. Thank you for my children and thank you
for making our dreams come true, and the dreams so many other families
each and every day.>>Title: For more info on Renew Sinai and how you can help,
