Vigils across Mount Sinai network honor healthcare heroes

June 10, 2020

Mount Sinai 1199 members, along with thousands of others across the union, have sacrificed and risked their lives while working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last night, these members gathered for a silent vigil at several Mount Sinai locations to pay tribute to their fallen sisters and brothers who gave their lives coming into work and providing care to those who were unable to care for themselves during this pandemic.

The gatherings were also designed to demonstrate to management, the strength of workers feelings around the sacrifices, risks, and contributions of ALL healthcare heroes at the hospital.

All 1199ers are essential, and we all deserve to be recognized for our work battling this deadly pandemic.
