Assistant Medical Director Dr. Stephanie Le Instills Collaboration in our Team of Mount Sinai Physicians and Nurse Practitioners

Stephanie Le always aspired to be a doctor like her father, a radiologist who worked for the U.S. Army. And she quickly found that geriatrics was the specialty for her. She did her residency in internal medicine at Boston University, which has a strong geriatrics program. “I love working with older people,” she said. “They are great to talk to, they tell wonderful stories, and they are grateful for the care. When I applied for fellowships, I focused on New York and I was fortunate to get into Mount Sinai for geriatric and palliative care.”

They meet in person when they can; on Zoom when that’s not possible. They share the good and the bad, providing each other with comfort, support, and community.

Life after Ostomy Surgery

A new collaboration between The New Jewish Home and White Plains Hospital is providing hope and help for patients recovering from ostomy surgery. 

When patients wake up from ostomy surgery, they are dealing with all the usual post-surgery issues — weakness, pain, and disorientation — plus “the reality that they are confronting a total change to their lifestyle, both physical and psychological,” according to Tina Nardi, ET Ostomy Specialist. She should know: As one of the pioneers in ostomy care, she has been counseling patients for more than 40 years. She was recently brought in to train the nursing staff at The New Jewish Home’s Sarah Neuman campus under a new partnership with White Plains Hospital designed to provide seamless care from surgery to rehab to discharge home.
