New York/New Jersey Regional Editor Barry Bottino accepted the award on behalf of and Lynch.

"Despite their own personal losses, treacherous roads and extensive power outages, these amazing nurses traveled by foot, bicycle, car or even public transportation to take care of their patients, some even going to nearby shelters to find them,” Lynch said. “The nurses I spoke with were impressed with their patients’ courage and perseverance; and while I listened to their stories, I was in awe of their heroic and relentless efforts under extremely harsh conditions.”

“This award stands for what does every day — share the positive contributions made by healthcare professionals,” said Heather Cygan, vice president of news. “I applaud the staff who put the nurses’ stories together into this compelling article and the nurses who went the extra mile to ensure their patients were cared for and safe.”
