St. Vincent’s Hospital Manhattan Comprehensive HIV Center
Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Stars, Fashion Gurus, And Politicians Turn Out To Honor Two Decades Of Leadership In The Fight Against HIV/AIDS

New York, NY – December 2, 2008 – St. Vincent’s Hospital Manhattan will commemorate the 20th anniversary of its Comprehensive HIV Center with a special fundraiser on December 2, 2008 at Gotham Hall. The event will honor the history of St. Vincent’s center as it evolved in response to the devastating epidemic of the 1980s, becoming the largest designated HIV Center in New York State. In addition to recognizing St. Vincent’s long dedication and commitment to caring for those living with HIV/AIDS, 20 exceptional individuals and organizations will also be recognized for their commitment and impact in the fight against AIDS.

New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn is serving as honorary chair of the celebration with Thom Filicia, Kristen Johnston, Florent Morellet, Bobby Moresco, and Brooke Shields as event chairs. Emcee Carson Kressley will be joined by keynote speaker Kenneth Cole and Nona Hendrix, from Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (the sweethearts of The Apollo), will provide a special musical performance.

Located in Greenwich Village, the epicenter of the domestic AIDS crisis, St. Vincent’s diagnosed some of the first known cases of HIV in the city in the early 1980s. “We are very proud of the profound work St. Vincent’s Hospital has done through the years,” says Henry Amoroso, President and CEO of Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers. “Our dedicated staff and doctors continue to inspire us every day with their courage and commitment in the fight against HIV/AIDS.”

St. Vincent’s was the first clinic of its kind on the east coast that welcomed and provided care for individuals with the disease who were turned away and stigmatized elsewhere. “In the past 20 years, we have made great strides in this battle,” says Frederick P. Siegal, MD, director of the HIV/AIDS Center. “However, the rate of HIV and AIDS is rapidly rising in New York City and spreading at three times the national rate. Now more than ever, the work of the HIV Center is extremely important.”

The HIV Center, which absorbed the Spellman Clinic from St. Vincent’s Midtown when the hospital closed in 2007, now treats more than 4,600 patients a year and works to curb the spread of the disease through educational programs and outreach. Prevention education programs for high-risk groups are a large part of staff outreach, while educating health care professionals through conferences and training programs help spread twenty years of expertise in fighting the disease.

The 20th anniversary celebration will be held at the Gotham Hall, located at 1356 Broadway, at 36th Street beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets begin at $500 and are available by calling 212-604-6800, or online at www.svcmc.org/HIVevent.

It is the center’s mission to continue to serve the HIV and AIDS community in the tradition of caring and support pioneered by St. Vincent’s Hospital in 1849.

Patients who were on Avodart or Dutasteride should refrain from donating blood for 6 months since there is a possibility of the blood being transfused to a pregnant female who might be carrying a male fetus.

The function of Levitra (Buy generic Levitra) is similar to that of Viagra, but in many cases the former is more effective. It can be taken with or without meals. It has nothing to do with sexually transmitted diseases. It never protects against such diseases.

Was the attempted murder charge because he bit the officer and that could lead to death if he eventually died from HIV/AIDS? Or did he actually try to kill the officer, and not just escape?

I cannot understand if this man knew that he was ill why he allowed himself to bite someone else.

I wanted to share this info. I have friends with many medical ailments that are helped by Isamune. Since Isamune is also recommended for AIDS, I wanted to share it. Seems that natural solutions don't get much visibility in the USA. It's a shame that too often only the Rx solutions are known by doctors. Anyway, here's some info if you're interested:
