New York Methodist Hospital to Host a Women’s Night Out
In February of 2013, over one hundred New Yorkers packed New York Methodist Hospital for the Day of Dance, NYM’s inaugural event in partnership with the Spirit of Women Network of hospitals.
New York Methodist Hospital (NYM) invites women ages 18 and up from across the borough to join the Hospital for an Evening of Spirit on Wednesday, October 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Evening of Spirit is NYM’s second event in partnership with the Spirit of Women network of hospitals, and will take place in the Hospital’s Carrington Pavilion Atrium, located at 506 Sixth Street in Brooklyn.
“Spirit of Women is a network of over one hundred leading hospitals and healthcare providers across the United States dedicated to advancing the cause of women’s health,” said Carol Vargas, assistant vice president and NYM’s coordinator of the Spirit of Women program. “New York Methodist Hospital is proud to be New York City’s only Spirit of Women hospital. In February, over a hundred Brooklynites came to the Hospital for the Day of Dance, NYM’s inaugural Spirit of Women event. After the Day of Dance’s outstanding success, the Evening of Spirit is sure to be a hit as well.”
The Evening of Spirit will be filled with pampering services such as mini-massages, acupuncture and hair/makeup consultations. There will also be shopping, women’s health information, blood pressure and glucose screenings, amazing door prizes, goody bags, wine tastings and healthy hors d’oeuvres. Admission to the event is $10 for Spirit of Women members and $15 for non-members (registration for Spirit of Women is free and can be completed online at nym.org/spirit).
