The New York City Council honored Lenox Health Greenwich Village staff this week with a proclamation for their extraordinary service in treating Chelsea bombing victims on September 17, 2016. The freestanding emergency room staff treated nine of the 31 people hurt during the explosion with injuries ranging from lacerations and contusions to mild concussions and decreased hearing.
The proclamation states the following:
On this occasion, it is a great privilege to publicly commend several key people for demonstrating the strength of character and resilience that define us as New Yorkers. Whether they identify as official first responders, business owners, residents or go by some other title, they have provided tremendous service to our City and the nation and they have earned the gratitude of every New Yorker. Now, therefore, be it known that the Council of the City of New York Gratefully honors everyone at Lenox Health Greenwich Village for their extraordinary service following the Chelsea bombing on September 17, 2016.
