Perks and Programs

We asked NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Employee Appreciation Celebrations: Every year, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital hosts themed Employee Appreciation Days, giving leaders the opportunity to say thank you to the staff for their commitment to putting patients first. During these celebrations, meals following a theme are served by managers and other leaders at local parks or onsite while a DJ and other entertainment is provided. This year the theme was Wild, Wild West, and employees participated in line dancing. Previous themes include Hawaii, Parisian, and Moroccan. Employees celebrating 10 or 15 years of service are recognized at local receptions. Employees with 20 or more years of service are celebrated at themed galas attended by senior leaders at landmark hotels in New York City. NYP Cultural Week honors the diverse backgrounds of our employees. During this celebration, cafeterias featured multicultural menus, employees were encouraged to dress in traditional clothing, and teams shared facts about their cultures.
  • NYP Everyday Amazing: NYP Everyday Amazing is an online, Hospital-wide program that allows co-workers to easily recognize each other in different ways. It includes opportunities to applaud and thank a co-worker for exceptional work, nominate and recognize co-workers for awards, and offers a wide array of gift choices, as well as interactive features, including a mobile app and social media platform. To date, over 195,000 moments of recognition have been issued in this platform. Furthermore, employees receive a customized yearbook when they are approaching service milestone anniversaries and retirement. The Service Milestone Yearbook includes personal comments and photos from leaders and colleagues, celebrating the friendships, relationships, and successes employees have experienced during their time at the Hospital.
  • Thank an NYP Employee: Thank an NYP Employee is an online, hospital-wide program that allows patients and families to easily recognize NewYork-Presbyterian employees and teams with an eCard. When a patient or family member creates an eCard to recognize an employee or team, the unit or department leader will receive a link to the eCard and will forward it to the employee(s). Thank an NYP Employee signage for patients and families is visible throughout the hospital.
  • NYPBeHealthy: This program engages our employees in their own wellbeing by providing the resources and tools to support them in achieving their individual health goals. Confidential and complimentary on-site wellbeing coaching, annual biometric screening and assessments, on-site yoga classes, confidential counseling, and discounts with online farmers’ markets are just some of the many resources available. NYPBeHealthy also encourages participation from thousands of employees in annual team-based competitions like the Steps Challenge and the Maintain Don’t Gain Challenge.
  • Schwartz Rounds: Schwartz Center Rounds are a multidisciplinary forum hosted at all NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital locations that provide support to clinical and non-clinical employees in dealing with complex emotional and social issues related to caring for patients. Topics covered include: managing team conflict around how to treat a patient, delivering bad news, caring for a colleague, and discrimination we encounter.
  • LGBT Task Force: As New Yorkers, we live in a highly diverse community, and this is reflected in our patient population. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusiveness across our workforce. Working with people representing diverse backgrounds, races, religions, sexual orientation, and ways of life, contributes to a more creative and vibrant environment, and ultimately, enables us to take better care of our patients and families. In support of our commitment, and, as a recently named leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital launched a training module, approved by the Human Rights Campaign, which focuses on the importance of creating a more welcoming, inclusive and LGBT sensitive health care environment.
  • Dialogues in Diversity: Dialogues in Diversity is a series of seminars launched by the Diversity & Inclusion team. These seminars are designed to raise awareness and spark meaningful conversations that nurture respect and trust among employees. The seminars are interactive and led by experts in a variety of diversity-related topics. Topics that have been presented include unconscious bias and the LGBTQ experience in healthcare, women in leadership, exploring the spectrum of gender identity, and spirituality and religion in healthcare.
  • NYPgreen: At NewYork-Presbyterian we recognize the intrinsic relationship between the health of people and the health of our environment. Many of our employees feel compelled to have a role in promoting sustainable practices within the healthcare system, and we are proud to promote environmental stewardship through NYPgreen, the hospital’s sustainability program. Through this program, NYP creates a forum whereby employees are empowered with the tools and resources necessary to pursue sustainability projects within their own departments. Areas of focus include landfill diversion, environmentally preferred purchasing, energy/resource conservation, green infrastructure and employee engagement.
  • Volunteer Opportunities: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is committed to improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve in New York City and Westchester County. Employees have many opportunities to give back outside of their day-to-day job duties, either within NewYork-Presbyterian or in the local neighborhoods. Together, employees volunteer at annual proms at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and the NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital for teenage patients and for seniors at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, dress up to visit patients on Halloween, provide taxi drivers and their families free health screenings, offer shadowing opportunities for students enrolled in local middle schools and high schools, recover surplus and no-longer-needed medical supplies, and serve meals at local shelters. These activities or programs are sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian.
  • Patient Centered Fridays: Patient Centered Fridays are a Hospital-wide initiative that cultivate a culture of safety and education while reinforcing our mission of putting patients first. Every Friday, senior leadership, department heads, and staff gather to present a structured curriculum around various issues in quality and safety — some clinical, some environmental. These gatherings encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and strengthen professional networks throughout NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
Physician Assistants collaborate to provide the highest quality of care and service to our patients.
