In December, HHC and the HHC Foundation will present STAT! For New York City's Public Hospitals!, a week-long series of music and art events in the five boroughs to celebrate and support the public hospitals and healthcare facilities. The STAT! events will raise awareness about the wide range of services the hospitals provide for New Yorkers. Proceeds will be used to acquire medical equipment and technology for each hospital.
The events planned for each borough include a salsa concert in the Bronx featuring the Grammy-nominated artist India and Frankie Negron; a global music concert led by Haitian Kompa singer Alan Cavé in Brooklyn; a Gospel and jazz music concert featuring Grammy-winning Gospel superstar Rev. Hezekiah Walker and The Temptations in Manhattan; a variety show featuring the Broadway Kids in Queens; and a weeklong art show featuring work from HHC's world class art collection on Staten Island. HHC employees get a discount to the events. Tickets are available on the STAT! website at www.stathhc.org.
