St. Mary’s receives award

Dr. Burton Grebin, President of St. Mary’s Healthcare for Children, accepts an award from Ann Armstrong-Dailey, Chief Executive Officer of Children’s Hospice International (CHI) in recognition of St. Mary’s groundbreaking Pediatric Palliative Care and End-of-Life Program. The award was presented at a special ceremony last month, commemorating the 25th anniversary of CHI.
We are deeply honored by this recognition,” Grebin remarked. “We opened the doors of our Pediatric Palliative Care Program in 1984 with 10 beds,” he said, continuing, “over the past 23 years, our comprehensive program has grown into a model program of pediatric care.”
The program at St. Mary’s was previously honored with the prestigious Circle of Life award for innovation from the American Hospital Association and the Quality Award for Best Practice in Pain Management and Palliative Care from the New York State Department of Health in 2004.
