CareMed CEO Fulfills Wishes Of Special Needs Kids

New Hyde Park-based company provides

Christmas cheer to St. Mary’s children

Each of the 97 patients at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children’s inpatient facility in Bayside had the opportunity to really think about what they wanted for Christmas and that’s exactly what they got, courtesy of Moby Kazmi, CEO and managing partner of CareMed Pharmaceutical Services in New Hyde Park.

Kazmi asked for a wish list of what each patient wanted and he made sure to fulfill each of his or her wishes. Among some of the wishes were pillow pets, lava lamps, cars, trucks, iTunes gift cards, dolls and more, all of which were delivered.

Along with a few of his family members, Kazmi visited each patient floor of the hospital handing out presents to all the kids, bringing them an early holiday treat before Christmas day.

“It was a wonderful opportunity for us to spread a little joy to St. Mary’s Kids during the holidays and watch their faces light up as they got their presents, Kazmi said. “My family and I really enjoyed meeting all the kids and just spending time at a hospital that provides the best possible care for children with special needs.”

News

New Hyde Park resident Tom Madera, of 7th Avenue, doesn’t want another car crashing into his house and hopes a Nassau County plan to install traffic calming features along Covert Avenue will prevent another incident.

 

“Anything would help, even if it makes noise like rubber strips along the road,” he said. “I can assure that it doesn’t make as much noise as a screeching Cadillac which has decided to reorganize the front of your house. That happened two years ago.”

 

The project would run down Covert Avenue from Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, south to Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont. The project could cost more than $250,000, according to Aryeh Lemberger, unit head for Nassau County traffic engineers. He expects the plan would begin in 2015.

No matter what, one thing is certain—there’s no better way to spend a sticky summer evening on Long Island than camped out at an exciting outdoor concert.

 

Dazzling a crowd at Memorial Park on Albert Street in New Hyde Park that just seemed to grow and grow as the evening went on, the talented foursome of Marty G and The G Men pumped out some of the most toe-tappin’ hits of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s...plus a few original tunes for good measure, on Wednesday, July 9.
