Re: Martha Stewart/Mt. Sinai Medical Care for Olders

I really disliked her after seeing her on a cooking show w/Julia Childs.  She was incredibly rude......interrupting, talking over and not letting Julia Childs speak at all.  Julie Childs picked up on this fairly quickly and limited her remarks to agreeing with Martha.

On Wednesday, June 26, Martha Stewart together with Mount Sinai Health System, announced the expansion of their highly successful model of medical care for older adults. 

 

'My partnership with the Mount Sinai Health System continues to evolve as we expand services of the Martha Stewart Center for Living to downtown Manhattan, where the needs of older adults are currently underserved,' said the culinary queen. 

 

'From now until 2030, 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day. This is the perfect time for leading academic medical centers and philanthropists to partner in improving care for this population and their parents.

 

'Below 14th street there are more people above the age of 65 than above 14th street,' shared Martha. 'That's why Mount Sinai built a whole new facility in Union Square.' 

 

'We are honored to once again collaborate with Martha Stewart and bring proven high-quality care to older adults in downtown Manhattan,' said Jeremy Boal, MD, President of Mount Sinai Downtown, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System, and Geriatrician. 

 

The center is focused on enabling older adults to live healthy and more engaged lives, by offering full-service, comprehensive care that includes access to specialist physicians and holistic living services such as tai chi, yoga, music therapy, nutrition planning, and fall prevention programs. 

 

'The gist of the hospital is to not age but to live better,' said the business woman and television personality. 

 

The establishment opens just in time, as Martha points out that in 10 more years, there are going to be more people over 65 in America than under 18. 

 

Branching out: 'My partnership with the Mount Sinai Health System continues to evolve as we expand services of the Martha Stewart Center for Living to downtown Manhattan,' said Martha

Choose being the operative word.

 

Good going, Martha.  This is a good thing.


I see your sly slant here. Yes, personal choice can make a difference and hopefully it is an altruistic choice.  But personal choice can never be a substitute.

Martha turns 78 in August so I think she looking out for her "peeps"  which includes me.

 

I  support her in what she is doing in her own words " it's a good thing." Amen.

I wonder what the co-pays are going to be for the services or will they be gratis?

I have not always been a fan of this woman, nor first in line to buy anything of hers, or to watch her on TV.   

 

However, when she served her time in a facility in this state, she had a positive impact on the people she met here, and MANY good things were said, and continue to be said about Martha Stewart.   I think she has a very caring nature, which is definitely a good thing!

RICH people should help where it's needed. They're the ones with the money and connections.

Just an observation that if you can afford to live in Manhattan you can likely afford co-pays.

 

Wonder why they didn't open this clinic in Harlem? I don't see much diversity in that photo op.

Her mother was there

 

Situated within Mount Sinai Hospital but with its own entrance, the 7,800 square-foot center will bring together doctors of various specialties under one roof to care for patients 65 and older, including Stewart's mother.
