Ms. Sandi Nicholson, philanthropist & art collector
Northwell Health is the largest healthcare provider in New York and amongst the largest in the nation. During the first 5 months of the COVID - 19 crisis, Northwell Health was at the epicenter providing medical care to over 76,000 COVID patients with the support of a team of 77,000 employees, including over 3,300 physicians and 20,000 nurses.
Northwell Health strives to improve the health of the communities they serve and are committed to providing the highest quality clinical care; educating the current and future generations of healthcare professionals; searching for new advances in medicine through the conduct of biomedical research; promoting health education; and caring for the entire community regardless of the ability to pay.

Northwell Health is also a nationally respected supporter of our veterans, and a member of America Serves, the nation's first coordinated network of organizations to help veterans connect with resources such as employment opportunities, behavioral-clinical services, education, housing, legal services and financial counseling.
As an academic medical center, Northwell Health is engaged in training the next generation of physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses.
The Northwell Health team has also helped inspire and motivate us during particularly challenging times; for example Emily Fawcett, RN, a nurse working on one of Lenox Hill Hospital’s COVID-19 units, helped launch an initiative that promises to provide positivity to her fellow front-line health care workers — something she calls “Hope Huddles.”
Northwell Health stands-out as a team of collaborators, healthcare professionals, research pioneers, and educators, caring for millions of patients each year. We are delighted to select the nurses of Northwell Health as the first beneficiary of Nurse Heroes and the 'Women Who Dared' collection.
