When is a curtain
not just a curtain?

Can you imagine a hospital bedside curtain that could help reduce the spread of infection?

Northwell Health employee Lorenz “Buddy” Mayer did. Thanks to Buddy's new design, removable panels of cleanable fabric on both sides of our bedside curtains can be disinfected in seconds. This reduces the spread of infection, and raises not just our standard of healthcare but the standard of healthcare.

Buddy’s idea was worthy of a patent and has since become an industry-wide innovation.

That’s what happens when 61,000 sets of eyes look at healthcare differently.

Look North with us.
