Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz and State Senator Carl Kruger teamed up to give toys and books to the children in Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital of Brooklyn. The two elected officials went from bed to bed visiting with the young patients and their families and presented each child with a gift.

“Holidays are supposed to be a time of family celebration. Spending time in a hospital during this period is especially difficult for both the patients and their families. That’s why Senator Kruger and I went to Maimonides to bring just a little bit of cheer and fun to the patients and also let their families know that there are people who are thinking about them,” Cymbrowitz said.

“During this holiday season, there is no greater pleasure than to brighten the spirit of children who cannot be home with their families,” said Kruger, chairman of the Social Services, Children and Families Committee. “Seeing these children smile is the most satisfying gift that anyone can receive.”

“Maimonides’ doctors and nurses are truly dedicated to doing everything possible to return their young patients to good health as quickly as possible. While this brand new, state of the art hospital has the most modern technology, the environment was designed to make the children and their families feel as comfortable as possible. It is my hope that visits such as Senator Kruger’s and mine will help to make the hospital experience a little easier for the kids,” Cymbrowitz stated.

Maimonides Medical Center is located at 4802 10th Avenue.
