A COmmunity leader, mother of two, and passionate
advocate for children with special needs, Cindy Johnson was
accustomed to wearing many hats. When she was introduced
to St. Mary’s in 1992, Cindy immediately embraced our
mission and graciously donned yet another. She joined the
Board of Directors of The Friedman Rehabilitation Institute, which
was later renamed St. Mary’s Rehabilitation Center for Children.
Cindy put her passion and leadership skills to the task for the children and staff.
In 2000 when St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children was formed to unify our
multi-faceted organization, Cindy gladly joined the new Board of the fledgling
System. Cindy has been instrumental in building awareness of St. Mary’s in the
business, political, and philanthropic communities. Her loyalty, talent, and
generosity have earned her the respect and admiration of fellow Board members,
staff, and friends of St. Mary’s. In 2004 Cindy was elected Chair of the Board of
Directors of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.

STephen Brent Wells was a young lawyer at Cadwalader
Wickersham and Taft when he was introduced to St. Mary’s in
the mid 1970s. At the time, St. Mary’s was a small and very caring
local facility that focused mostly on asthmatic children. The
Sisters of St. Mary’s charged Steve with establishing a medical
advisory board to affiliate with an acute care teaching hospital
and to recruit the Hospital’s first medical director. The medical director selected was
Burton Grebin, MD and the rest is history.
But Steve’s history with St. Mary’s didn’t end there. For the past 35 years, Steve has
been firmly committed to St. Mary’s total family approach to helping families and
their children with special needs. He has continually strived to do all that he can to
help each child realize his or her potential. Steve established the Amy Wells
Unlimited Possibilities Fund in memory of his daughter to use recreational therapy
to help achieve this goal for St. Mary’s children. He joined the Board of Directors
of St. Mary’s more than 25 years ago, providing the personal perspective and
extraordinary financial and legal talents to help the organization grow and thrive.
In 2004 Steve was elected Chairman of St. Mary’s Foundation for Children; he
continues to sit on the Board of Directors of the Healthcare System; and he regularly
seeks to find ways to help St. Mary’s children unlock their unlimited possibilities.

T WAS A JOYOUS dAY when baby Shadat was born. A perfect little boy—
the first child in a perfect new family. All was well until little Shadat tried to
cry for the first time. He turned blue. born with a congenital heart condition
and paralyzed vocal cords, Shadat underwent surgery at just 11 days old to
repair the tiny blood vessels from his heart to his lungs. At two months old,
Shadat was brought to St. Mary’s Hospital for children with a tracheostomy in
his throat to help him breathe and a feeding tube to help him eat.
for baby Shadat, St. Mary’s has been a home away from home for the past
year. His complex medical condition has required advanced pediatric care far
more complicated than his loving parents can provide at home. While at St.
Mary’s, he receives around-the-clock medical care to make his heart stronger
and physical, occupational, and speech therapies to help him meet all of his
early childhood milestones.

With premature births on the rise,
St. Mary’s has seen an increased need
for special services such as Early
Intervention (EI) to identify and treat
developmental delays in infants and
toddlers. St. Mary’s is one of the
largest EI providers approved by New
York State, with contracts in New York
City, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
We evaluate hundreds of children
each year at the Hospital or at home.
In 2006, we provided Early Intervention
services to more than 1,700 children
under the age of three.

St. Mary’s staff see to it that his condition doesn’t slow him down. When he’s
not hugging his favorite barney stuffed animal, Shadat can be found playing
in the physical therapy gym or clapping his hands when he is excited to
see his family. Recently, little Shadat took his first steps, with his extended
“family” of nurses, therapists, caregivers, and his parents proudly watching.
Shadat’s parents are delighted with his progress and are grateful to the doctors,
nurses and therapists for their guidance. baby Shadat will be leaving St.
Mary’s soon, but his stay here has made a lasting impression on his family.
His parents’ wish for his future is “for Shadat to become a doctor so that he
can help others as he was helped at St. Mary’s.”

knife in the other, Max cuts his french toast, takes a bite,
and gets ready to do it again. Performing this daily morning
ritual might seem the norm for most five-year-olds, but for
Max and his family, this is a major accomplishment. You see,
for most of Max’s young life prior to coming to St. Mary’s, he
relied on a feeding tube for nourishment.
born prematurely at just 29 weeks, Max weighed less than
three pounds. He spent the first three months of life in a
neonatal intensive care unit where he was also treated for a
life-threatening heart condition. Placed on a ventilator not
once, but twice in his first year, Max’s tiny lungs sustained
damage. There was concern he might permanently remain on
a ventilator. Life for Max and his family was like a runaway
train—never knowing what was around the next corner.
Max’s parents watched as other families grew up around
them while Max remained in the hospital. doctors were
eventually able to stabilize his heart and lung condition, but
new complications set in after he came home. Little Max
lacked the ability to eat—a condition all too common in
preemies—and required a feeding tube to receive nutrition.

As Max grew up, his condition manifested into a serious feeding disorder.
for the first two and a half years of his life, the majority of his calories were
administered through a feeding tube. The little food he could tolerate—
yogurt, cheese puffs, and formula from a bottle—were rarely, if ever, kept
down. Max’s parents aggressively searched for help for their young son. He
had beaten the odds before and they were determined to do it again.
He was admitted to St. Mary’s center for Pediatric feeding disorders, the first
and only program of its kind in New York. Max was evaluated by an interdisciplinary team, including a gastrointestinal physician, nutritionist, psychologist,
nurse practitioner, and a speech language pathologist. A plan was formulated
and an intensive course of action was put in place. According to his mother,
Max made more progress in his nine weeks in the feeding Program than he

had in his entire life. And because St. Mary’s included her as part of the team,
she was an active participant in his care and recovery.
Today Max is an outgoing, charismatic, and resilient child who is growing
by leaps and bounds. Now a preschooler in St. Mary’s institute for child
development, Max continues to be monitored by the feeding Program to
make sure he stays on track.
While life may still not be “normal” at Max’s house, he’s come a long way from
the days of ventilators, oxygen tanks, and extended hospital stays. As Max’s
dad explains, “NicUs get the glory of saving lives, but places like St. Mary’s
help put lives back together.” His parents are grateful for his progress and
appreciate the little things in life. Little things like eating french toast for
breakfast.

vulnerable to mini-strokes. Still, she lived life to its fullest in her native
dominican Republic. That all changed when carla was nine and suffered her
first stroke. A second stroke the next year left her unable to walk, use her right
arm or say more than a few poorly pronounced words. carla was homebound
in her small house, only going out when carried by her mother. Just before
her 12th birthday, carla had yet another stroke.
Her mother brought the family to the U.S., where she found help. carla
underwent life-saving brain surgery and then intensive rehabilitation
at St. Mary’s Traumatic brain injury Unit (Tbi). The Tbi team worked with
carla to break her silence and resistance to move. communication was difficult at first, but collaboration among St. Mary’s specialists led to a medication
intervention that accelerated her response to therapy. despite months of
rehabilitation, carla wasn’t using her right arm outside of therapy. Her
occupational therapist initiated modified constraint induced Movement

Therapy (ciMT), a rigorous program developed at St. Mary’s for children with
brain injuries, which restricted carla’s use of her left arm and forced her to use
her right arm during exercises.
St. Mary’s staff continually looked for new ways to motivate carla. They
found the answer. Knowing her so well, the women who worked with her
recognized that, like many 12-year-old girls, carla loved to go to the beauty
salon. Now, carla earns “beauty bucks” for her progress in therapy, which she
redeems for a visit to the local beauty parlor accompanied by her favorite
nursing assistant.

After 10 months of extremely hard work, which included intensive physical,
occupational, and speech therapies, carla recently took her first
steps in two years. She is speaking again in both English and
Spanish, and using her right hand more often in daily activities.
carla’s recovery also includes participation in social and educational
activities, which were abruptly curtailed by her strokes. busy making up for
lost time, she is making friends, attending on-campus public school and
enjoying off-campus activities. No longer on the sidelines, carla can be
found joining in the fun on St. Mary’s playground. And, thanks to “beauty
bucks,” this delightful girl is working hard and looking her best.
St. Mary’s Traumatic Brain Injury and Coma
Recovery Program (TBI) is highly acclaimed for its
leading-edge programs that treat children with
cognitive and physical disabilities related to an
injury to the brain—from accident, illness,
infection, cancer, or stroke. St. Mary’s pioneered
the first pediatric program of its kind in the New
York metropolitan area. St. Mary’s TBI services
can be provided to patients at the Hospital, at

T WAS A TYPicAL dAY for nine-year-old John Henry. . . a sleepover at his
cousin’s house, video games, and goofing around. it was anything but typical
when armed robbers broke into the apartment that night in an attempted
home invasion and opened fire. Young John Henry was in the wrong place
at the wrong time. He was shot in the head and rushed to an acute care
hospital for extensive brain surgery. He lost his eye and was rendered partially
paralyzed, a condition that was thought to be permanent.
John Henry’s prognosis was grim. He was placed on a ventilator and put into
a medically-induced coma to keep him from pulling out life-sustaining tubes
and equipment. After two weeks in the hospital, it was still touch and go. His
parents were told he would never be the same child again.
That’s when John Henry came to St. Mary’s for intensive rehabilitation. His
parents had never heard of St. Mary’s, but their trusted neurosurgeon at a
renowned pediatric acute care hospital highly recommended the facility for
its innovative techniques and excellent track record in treating children with
brain injuries.

When John Henry was first admitted to St. Mary’s Traumatic brain injury
program, he was unable to move his neck, open his mouth, or move his
limbs. A highly skilled team of healthcare professionals met with his family to
establish goals for his rehabilitation and recovery. Results came fast and within one week he moved his neck and started to speak. On his birthday two
weeks later, John Henry lifted his leg for the first time. Each goal was met with
positive results.
Within a few more weeks, John Henry was able to sit up on his own and
then walk with an assistive device. He used this opportunity to walk the halls
of St. Mary’s with his therapists and nurses, getting to know the staff and
patients and giving everything he saw a unique John Henry
nickname. His progress was remarkable. Physical therapy
(PT), or as John Henry would jokingly say, “pain and torture,”
along with other therapies at St. Mary’s, was significantly
changing the bleak future that had been predicted.
After five months of aggressive physical, occupational,
speech, and behavioral therapies, John Henry achieved his
family’s ultimate goal. He walked out of St. Mary’s on his
own. “They work miracles,” exclaimed John Henry’s mother
of his rehabilitation.

St. Mary’s also played a large part in the well-being of John Henry’s family.
The impact of his injuries had taken its toll on the family. Weeks and months
of fear and anxieties, of progress and set backs, had put their life in turmoil.
St. Mary’s family-centered approach to care treated the whole family, not just
John Henry. Mom and dad were counseled on how to cope and adjust to
each new situation. They were helped to understand that things were going
to get better. “We were falling apart and they gave us our life back,” credits
John Henry’s mother.
Today, John Henry is back home and attending school. While much has
changed for this brave young man, he still enjoys playing with his cousin,
video games, and just goofing around. John Henry continues to receive ongoing therapies at home through St. Mary’s Home care program.

nearly quadruple the number of children cared for just a
decade before. St. Mary’s inpatient programs in Bayside, Queens and
Ossining, Westchester maintained a nearly 100% occupancy rate.
The Early Intervention Program grew by 20%, admissions to several
home care programs more than doubled, and the System’s operating
budget reached almost $100 million.
Helping Children Cope with Illness
With the generous support of the Virginia Hunt Trust, St.
Mary’s introduced the Coping Coach Program in 2006 to
help take the pain out of a visit to the doctor. The program enlists
the help of trained Coping Coaches who accompany St. Mary’s
children on medical visits to minimize behavioral distress. Coaches
bring along special Coping Kits that are full of age-appropriate

began in 2006 with the design and implementation of a home care
information system. Over 200 tablet computers will enable home
care staff to provide up-to-the-minute charting at each patient’s
home. St. Mary’s information systems will be expanded to include
inpatient care and will exchange medical information with New York
Presbyterian Hospital thanks to support from New York State.
Awards and Accolades
St. Mary’s was awarded $200,000 for the 2006 New York State
Department of Health Safety Award in recognition of our state-ofthe-art respiratory program targeting children with tracheostomies.
Judged by a panel of reviewers from Johns Hopkins and Duke
Universities, the selection process was rigorous and St. Mary’s was

St. Mary’s serves as spokesperson on many important health
issues with the goal of informing and educating local and national

St. Mary’s was instrumental in obtaining a rate increase for private
duty nursing services in New York. In 2006, St. Mary’s and patient
families testified at a Senate Finance and Assembly Ways and Means
Committee hearing in support of legislation to increase the Medicaid
reimbursement rate for continuous care nursing in home care.
St. Mary’s was actively involved in reversing a New York State
“Parental Refusal” policy that threatened Medicaid funding for
hundreds of our families. The policy would have made middleclass families ineligible for much-needed Medicaid.
St. Mary’s and the National Center for the Safe Transportation of

to fund new treatment strategies, keep existing programs running strong, or
building greater awareness of St. Mary’s programs and services, our community of
friends is always up to the challenge.
Through the continued generosity of individuals, community groups, businesses,
and foundations, we received the critical funding needed to support the vital
programs at St. Mary’s. With your help, we reached new
heights and opened new doors. In 2006 St. Mary’s Foundation for Children raised over $3 million in philanthropic
support, allowing us to further develop our innovative array
of philanthropically-funded clinical programs, such as the
world-renowned Center for Pediatric Feeding Disorders and
our complementary care programs, which include

Volunteering
Bob Dillon, also known as Otto the Clown, visits the children at St. Mary’s each month, bringing smiles,
laughter, and surprises. When not clowning around, Bob also volunteers in the Foundation office and on the
children’s units.
The Adult Volunteer Program enables community members who are at least 25 years of age to become
involved in a variety of activities at St. Mary’s, such as working directly with the children in recreational activities, tutoring,
friendly visiting, or classroom assistance. Volunteers can also offer their time and talents in one of our offices, on the patient
units, or on a special short-term assignment. To learn more about volunteering at St. Mary’s, please call (718) 281-8684.
