STATEMENT FROM QBP RICHARDS ON APPOINTMENT OF NEW CEOs at H+H/ELMHURST & H+H/QUEENS
(January 29, 2021 at 3:31pm)
“When Queens became the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst became the focal point of the nation. We will never forget the heartbreaking images of NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst’s frontline workers as they worked day and night to keep Queens residents and their loved ones safe and strong. I cannot think of a better person to lead NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst to the pandemic’s finish line and beyond than Helen Arteaga Landaverde. Helen is the exemplary public servant and healthcare hero Queens to move NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst forward. I am hopeful for NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst’s future under Helen’s leadership, and the Office of Queens Borough President is here to support her and the entire team.
“Neil Moore is a proven leader in the healthcare field with a deep commitment to serving the public. He is an excellent choice to lead Health + Hospitals/Queens as it continues to provide our diverse borough with comprehensive, high-quality medical care for all who come through its doors. I look forward to working with Neil in addressing the continued health care challenges facing ‘The World’s Borough,’ including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the goal to provide greater health care to traditionally underserved communities.”
