Assemblyman Ari Brown (R-Cedarhurst) celebrated his predecessor Harvey Weisenberg at the renaming of the Mount Sinai South Nassau Long Beach Emergency Department triage space along with his immediate predecessor and current Hempstead Councilwoman, Missy Miller, and Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford. Weisenberg was the Assemblyman representing the 20th District from 1989-2016, which is now represented by Brown. The area was named after the former Assemblyman and his late wife, Ellen, a nurse and longtime resident of the area for over twenty-five years. The Harvey and Ellen Triage Area is the only independent emergency department on Long Island, and will service residents from Queens to Suffolk County.
“I can’t thank Ellen and Harvey enough for their service to this community. Harvey and Ellen were inseparable, the most romantic couple,” Brown said. “Their relationship and love for each other was wonderful to see. It is extremely admirable to see Harvey continue to give back to the area and take interest in expanding our critical public health system, which has become more important than ever during the pandemic. I hope in my time in office I can represent this district in an equally impactful way.”
