Northwell Health Staff Receives One in a Million Award: In Recognition of the Care They Provided During NY COVID-19 Pandemic

September 14, 2020

Northwell Health staff are being honored with Multiplying Good’s One in a Million Award in recognition of the care they provided during New York’s coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

At Northwell, our tireless and dedicated staff treated more than 77,000 people when New York was the COVID-19 epicenter. They worked through and beyond exhaustion to care for people in need,” said Michael Dowling, Northwell Health President and CEO. “I am humbled by our staff’s unyielding grit and compassion and I am proud that they are being recognized with this award.”

Northwell’s frontline staff cared for more COVID-19 patients than any other US health system and did so under heroic circumstances. From emergency medical technicians who manned the ambulances to phlebotomists deployed to drive-thru testing sites, caregivers at hospitals and environmental services workers who kept everything clean, it was a true team effort.

The One in a Million Awards Campaign celebrates the millions whose acts of bravery, generosity, and kindness are bringing the nation together in this time and, through recognition, inspire others to do the same. Awardees are featured on the campaign’s website and social media, and provided a digital certificate.

“Since our founding in 1972, we have celebrated extraordinary public service with all recipients filtered through a robust selection process,” explained Hillary Schafer, CEO of Multiplying Good. “During this time, millions are leaning in to do anything they can to help, and everyone is looking for good news stories. We believe that every act, at this time, is extraordinary. This campaign is designed for everyone to nominate anyone who inspires them.”
