Cops and Hospital Heroes Celebrate the ‘Frontline Family’ at Long Island Jewish Medical Center

This morning, Long Island Jewish Medical Center nurses, doctors and hospital staff were greeted by police sirens and a cheering crowd of dozens of cops, who were there to deliver food and moral support to their fellow “frontline family” members after a long shift battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We came to Long Island Jewish Medical Center to say ‘thank you’ to our sisters and brothers on the front lines. These nurses, doctors and hospital staff members have always stood by the side of New York City police officers, long before this pandemic. They have held our hands and shed tears for our fallen. Now it’s our turn to show them the same support.”

Panico’s Community Market in Smithtown, NY helped with the preparation and delivery of more than 750 sandwiches, continuing their longstanding support for first responders and veterans in our area and across the nation.
