On Saturday February 6, a devastating 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook the island nation of Taiwan, leaving death and destruction in its path. The NYP/Queens community shares in the grief and concern for all those affected. We seek to help ease the burdens brought about by this natural disaster. As has been our tradition in the past when similar disasters struck, the NYP/Queens family joins together to lend assistance to the relief efforts. We do so by helping to provide the resources necessary to expedite food, clothing and medicine needed by the victims. NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens has established the Taiwan Earthquake Relief Fund. All funds received will be forwarded to the United Way of Taiwan, a reputable affiliate of the United Way organization here in the United States.

Palliative care is high quality, multidimensional care for patients who are seriously ill, and their families. Palliative care can be provided together with curative treatments (in appropriate situations). Our team believes in forming a partnership between patients, families, doctors and nurses, with the Patient being the center of care. Our goal is to help patients feel better by treating pain and distressing symptoms, and to improve quality of life for both patients AND families. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and other specialists who work with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. We are grateful for gifts that help us enhance educational efforts at multiple fronts, including medical, nursing, interdisciplinary, and public education.
