Spectrum News: Hilton Garden Inn Transforms for Medical Staff
Shannon Galuski, executive director of the St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation, appeared in a Spectrum News report on how the Albany Hilton Garden Inn has been transformed into “Heroes Landing” to serve as a respite for health care workers at St. Peter’s Hospital and Albany Med, serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
From the story:
Health care workers can go to the hotel after their shifts. They’re each given a package with toiletries, snacks, and a meal.
SEFCU partnered with BBL, St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation, CDPHP, and MVP Health Care to make Heroes Landing possible.
“Immediately it was, ‘look, we need to help them refresh, help them by housing them, by feeding them,’ just showing them that they have a place to go,” says Michael Castellana, SEFCU president and CEO.
“It’s easy to see that they are everything to those patients right now,” says Shannon Galuski, executive director of the St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation. “My biggest hope is that every health care worker realizes how much the community supports them and how grateful we are.”
