Ceremony officially unveiled Investors Bank Post COVID-19 Care Center at Richmond University Medical Center  

November 29, 2021 Richmond University Medical Center and Investors Bank officially unveiled the new Investors Bank Post COVID-19 Care Center, located on the RUMC campus. The center which has been assisting COVID-19 patients with their short and long-term recovery since opening in May of 2020, was renamed in recognition of the Investors Bank and Investors Foundation support of RUMC, a full-service hospital that has served Staten Island and surrounding communities for nearly 120 years. Over 1,000 patients have received care and assistance at the Post COVID-19 Care Center since its opening.

The new Investors Bank Post COVID-19 Care Center will continue to feature a team of RUMC experts in pulmonary care, cardiology, infectious disease, psychiatry, behavioral health, physiatry and additional areas of healthcare. Patients do not need to have been previously treated for COVID-19 at RUMC to access the Center’s services. Not only will the Center treat patients to help manage their recovery, but the team is gathering important medical information to better understand the impact COVID-19 has on the human body. Information critical to the medical community which continues to learn more and more about this virus each day.

“Richmond University Medical Center is now one of New York City’s most comprehensive COVID-19 care facilities as we provide vaccinations, immediate care for patients diagnosed with the virus, monoclonal antibody treatment and treatment for those who are recovering,” RUMC President and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel J. Messina, PhD, FACHE, said. “I am extremely grateful to our friends at Investors Bank and the Investors Foundation for extending their hands to our patients and joining us on the journey to better care for our neighbors. Their investment in this Post COVID-19 Care Center is indeed an investment in the health of our community.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony featured remarks from RUMC President and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel J. Messina, PhD, FACHE; and Brian Gomez, Vice President/ District Manager at Investors Bank. They were joined by medical staff who provided an update on services and discussed medical findings gathered through research conducted at the center regarding post-COVID-19 after effects in recovered patients. 

“Investors is proud to be affiliated with such an important leading-edge care center that is so vital to the community,” said Domenick A.  Cama, President and Chief Operating Officer for Investors Bank. “It’s a symbol of our continuing commitment to the health and well-being of Staten Island and the region. We feel fortunate to be able to support an amazing team of doctors, therapists and caregivers who provide such important care.”
