Mount Sinai celebrates 13 years

Doctors, staff and friends of Mount Sinai Queens recently celebrated the 13 years that the hospital has served those who live in the western Queens area.

The anniversary included presentations of awards to staff and doctors for their outstanding job performance as they reflected on the accomplishments of the previous year.

“Employee of the Year” went to Deborah Guthrie-Aarons; Cristina Bayne was named “Freshman of the Year”; Perceverada Marmol was awarded for Service Excellence; Chester Ostrowski was given “Manager of Year”; “Team of the Year” went to Rehabilitation Medicine; and Roxanna Jimenez was awarded Physician of the Year.

Mount Sinai Queens, located at 2510 30th Avenue in Astoria, is a 235-bed facility with nearly 500 attending physicians and more than 300 registered nurses. It is the only hospital in Queens designated as a Primary Stroke Center by both New York State and the Joint Commission.
