American Airlines has partnered with Hyatt Hotels
to award thousands of health care professionals from NYC Health +
Hospitals/Elmhurst with three-night complimentary vacations to
help them recharge and reconnect with their loved ones, once they
are able to take time for themselves.
The staff, more than 4,000 at NYC Health +
Hospitals/Elmhurst, will be treated to priority airfare on round trip flights
American Airlines to Hyatt hotels in select destinations across
the U.S. and Caribbean.
“We are extremely grateful to Hyatt and American
Airlines for this generous gift to our health care workers, who
have been at the epicenter of the COVID19 pandemic,” said Israel
Rocha, Vice President of NYC Health + Hospitals and CEO of NYC
Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst. “Our doctors, nurses, and other staff
on the front lines of this unprecedented health care crisis really
appreciate the outpouring of support from two of America’s major
companies, and we look forward to taking advantage of these
well-earned vacations in the near future.”
NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst serves an area of
nearly one million people in one of the most socio-economically
diverse communities in the U.S. The hospital is among some of the
hardest-hit in a city severely affected by COVID19. In response to the crisis, the hospital quickly
scaled to increase Intensive Care Units (ICU) capacity by 500%.
“At Hyatt, everything we do is fueled by our
purpose of care and when opportunities like this present
themselves we are inspired to act,” said Mark Hoplamazian,
president and CEO, Hyatt. “We’ve heard from so many of our
colleagues and members who simply want to do some good and find a
way to share their gratitude for some of the heroes of this
pandemic in one of the hardest-hit areas of New York. We are
humbled by the health care workers’ dedication to saving lives.
Now it’s our turn to take care of them like members of our own
family, and we look forward to making their stays special when
they are able to take a hard-earned break.”
also added all
health care workers globally to its Hyatt Friends & Family Rate. Qualified
health care workers can access the special rate at Hyatt.com or
via the hotel company’s global contact centers by including the special
offer code: THANKYOU and validating their professional status. They will be
able to enjoy this special offer for stays through 30 June 2021.
