Titled “Heal,” the 6 foot by 6 foot by 3 foot aluminum sculpture, designed by Mamaroneck resident Sid Singer and donated by him and his wife, Shirley Singer has been installed at the main entrance to Westchester Medical Center and the hospital’s Ambulatory Care Pavilion celebrating the healing care of health care providers across WMCHealth.
“We are grateful to Sid and Shirley Singer for this meaningful and generous gift,” said WMCHealth President and CEO Michael Israel. “Our workforce across the Hudson Valley embodies the true meaning of the word heal in service to our patients and their families.”
According to Singer, the “H” askew in the sculpture signifies that something needs to be corrected or healed.
“Whether you are a patient or caregiver, going to a hospital may lead to a feeling of apprehension,” said Singer, “and on arrival there can be a sense of relief as trained professionals endowed with an incredible array of skill and technology will handle your care. This work of art is meant to be soothing to those that arrive at Westchester Medical Center as it represents healing and comfort.”
A six-inch version of the sculpture is currently available for purchase in the Westchester Medical Center gift shop. Sale proceeds go toward the hospital’s Caregiver Center, which provides services for individuals with loved ones undergoing care at Westchester Medical Center or Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
