The massive storm pounding the East Coast and elsewhere has been devastating in terms of human and financial costs. The health care industry, as expected, has responded heroically to the crisis--images of hospital personnel at NYU Langone Medical Center carrying children and other patients down 15 flights of stairs and squeezing airbags to keep newborns on respirators breathing remind people that whatever nature throws at humanity, medical professionals will be there doing their jobs.
Health Data Management’s parent company, SourceMedia, based in New York, has covered the unfolding news across its stable of financial, banking, insurance and health care-related publications. Following are links to SourceMedia and Bloomberg stories that detail the impact of Sandy on those industries during and after the flooding, fires and other devastation. Our thoughts and prayers are with our co-workers and all others who have been borne the brunt of the storm.
