It’s signed, sealed, and snipped at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. Leaders of both healing institutions including Dr. Laura Forese, chief operating officer of NewYork-Presbyterian; Dr. Richard Liebowitz, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist; James W. Perkins, chairman of the Community Board of Trustees; and Dr. Michael G. Stewart, vice dean, professor, and chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College as well as otolaryngologist-in-chief at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center, joined together on Feb. 23 to cement the deal and finalize the partnership of two great hospitals into one even bigger, greater medical center for our borough with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

“This hospital has been a true leader for the entire borough,” explained Dr. Forese. “For NewYork-Presbyterian to partner with this hospital is a dream, and a dream comes true when people have vision and care about what they are doing.”

Dr. Liebowitz is optimistic too, and shared, “With the support of NYP, and the staff of this hospital, we cannot help but succeed in fulfilling our mission.”

James W. Perkins and Michael G. Stewart added to the program of speakers, rounding out the event.

Elected officials including Assembly members Felix Ortiz (D–Sunset Park), Robert Carroll, (D–Park Slope) and Jo Anne Simon (D–Downtown) were also on hand to welcome the partnership into the community.

Standing O says, “Thank you for providing our residents with the tops in medical care, and wishing you a long and very healthy partnership.”

NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital [506 Sixth St. at Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 780–3000].
