Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, honored New York Downtown Hospital (NYDH) with her presence at downtown Manhattan's only hospital's 14th Annual Gala, held on Thursday, October 11, at Cipriani Wall Street, 55 Wall Street in New York City.

Elizabeth Blackwell MD Medal, New York Downtown Hospital's highest honor, named for America's first woman physician and founder of NYDH's precursor, was awarded to Bruce D. Logan, M.D., in recognition of his medical expertise, compassionate care, wise stewardship, and teaching excellence in Dr. Blackwell's tradition. Dr. Logan has served the Downtown community and NYDH with dedication for over 30 years, as a physician, Chief Medical Officer, and President and CEO.

The Distinguished Physician Award was presented to Victor I. Rosenberg, M.D., nationally recognized as a brilliant and innovative physician in the field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. For 44 years, Dr. Rosenberg has served his patients and Downtown Hospital with distinction.

The Community Service Award was presented to architect David M. Childs, FAIA, Consulting Design Partner of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, for his architectural masterpiece Freedom Tower at Ground Zero, a monument to the determination and courage of our city and the world.

The Gala, chaired by Trustee Giovanna Cipriani, Executive Vice President of Cipriani USA., marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of The New York Infirmary for Indigent Women and Children, New York Downtown Hospital's forerunner, by Dr. Blackwell.
