Posted: 11/2/2017

The medical staff of Putnam Hospital Center donated $1,000 to the American Red Cross to assist in their hurricane relief efforts.

The physicians recently voted to allocate the money toward the agency's assistance to victims affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.

“It is our honor and privilege to contribute to the Red Cross and assist them with the great work they do in helping so many people affected by these devastating hurricanes,” said Dr. Michael Nesheiwat, president of the medical staff.

Representatives from the Red Cross visited Putnam Hospital Center on Oct. 30 to receive their check delivered by general surgeon Dr. Hansraj Sheth, vice president of the medical staff.

Mary Young, CEO of the agency’s Metro NY North chapter, appreciated the good will.

"We have such massive responses happening across the country," Young said. "We couldn't do our work without generous donors. We are so thankful to the medical staff at Putnam Hospital Center."
