MAKING HEADWAY FOUNDATION JUST RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING EMAIL FROM DR. GROSSMAN OF NYU:
I am thrilled to report that we are moving forward with a phased re-opening of NYU Langone, with Tisch Hospital starting before the end of the year. Our goal of having nearly all of our main campus services back up and running by the end of January 2013 remains on track
Last week, we reached two significant milestones in our recovery efforts: the delivery of a mobile kitchen to ensure that food and nutrition services will be available for our patients, and the installation of a mobile MRI, a critical component to the re-opening of our inpatient services. Locating a unit in a short amount of time, in addition to finding a new and safe location capable of supporting the unit’s weight, was no small feat, but this puzzle became another opportunity for our faculty and staff to demonstrate the teamwork and creative thinking that has become a frequent sight at NYU Langone.
While positive progress in our patient care areas continues, the Office of Science and Research (OSR) is also expanding its efforts to help our research community. Principal investigators have a new support team of faculty advisors and staff from OSR to help them provide a clear and accurate picture to all program officers at the NIH, as well as to officials from other organizations, of the significant toll Sandy took on our research efforts and how we are quickly moving towards a full recovery.
As you can see, we have overcome many challenges over the past few weeks. And while many still lie ahead, I know the faculty and staff at NYU Langone will continue to rise to the occasion so we can get back to doing what we do best—providing world-class patient care, conducting groundbreaking research, and educating the next generation of physicians. Thank you for your continued support.
