In a simple expression of appreciation for the committed efforts of their staff during the coronavirus pandemic, in particular those employees working on a holiday, administrators at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip on Easter distributed chocolate bars to doctors, nurses and other personnel as they entered and exited the building during the morning and evening change of shifts. Hospital president Ruth E. Hennessey was among the administrators offering words of gratitude and support to the health care heroes serving the sick during the COVID-19 crisis.
