...Hudson Guild presents the Chelsea Award to a community leader who helps the foundation to provide its programs and services to over 14,000 people in the Chelsea community.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates isn’t only a leading health provider in New York City. The cardiac care center also gives back to local communities in need with generous charitable donations, volunteer time, and other outreach efforts. Recently, the Manhattan-based heart health clinic was formally recognized for their community service in Chelsea.
The Hudson Guild organization, a nonprofit that has been providing services to the Chelsea community for over 118 years, honored New York Cardiovascular Associates for their dedicated charitable efforts in Chelsea — presenting them with the highly esteemed 2013 Chelsea Award.
Hudson Guild recognized New York Cardiovascular Associates at their annual Hudson Guild Benefit, held on April 11. Dennis Gifford, C.E.O. accepted the award on behalf of NYCVA.
“I am both honored and humbled to accept this award,” Mr. Gifford said. “We’re both in the business of caring for people,” he told the audience of Hudson Guild, NYCVA, and other attendees. Mr. Gifford went on to talk about the difference Hudson Guild and its partners have made in the lives of Chelsea residents, and how much it has meant to NYCVA to be involved. “This is not about New York Cardiovascular… It’s about the good work that Hudson Guild has done over the last 100-plus years,” he said.
Dr. Michael Infantino from NYCVA was also in attendance and spoke passionately about his organization’s partnership with Hudson Guild. “It goes beyond our responsibilities to patient care,” said Dr. Infantino. “It also lends itself to our commitment and our responsibility to the community… That’s why we feel so strong that we have to be committed to nurture programs such as Hudson Guild.”
Every year, Hudson Guild presents the Chelsea Award to a community leader who helps the foundation to provide its programs and services to over 14,000 people in the Chelsea community. That includes vital services like child care, after-school programs, senior services, counseling, arts programs, and educational activities for children and families in need.
New York Cardiovascular Associates was chosen to receive the Chelsea Award in recognition of their community efforts over the past year. Last Thanksgiving, NYCVA donated over 150 turkeys for the Hudson Guild’s Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, which provides free meals for low-income families who would not otherwise be able to enjoy a holiday dinner.
NYCVA and Hudson Guild clearly benefit from their partnership in pursuit of improving people’s lives in Chelsea. Everyone involved at NYCVA looks forward to their continued community outreach in Chelsea and neighboring communities.
