Q: How long have you worked at Einstein?
A: Nine years
Q: What does “More than Medicine” mean to you?
A: “More than Medicine” means that we take a special, vested interest in our patients. It means that we don’t just care about what they’re here for; we care about the total being. We want to make sure that we greet them, that we are interested in them and that we show them that we care. We show them that we are very interested in who they are as individuals.
Q: What gets you excited about coming to work at Einstein?
A: I really enjoy what I’m doing. My life is surrounded with people. I’m in the people business in human resources, and interacting with people each and every day is something that makes me happy.
Q: What is the one word or phrase that describes the type of person you need to be to be successful at Einstein?
It’s a sweltering day on Tabor Road, but temperatures in the high 80s aren’t keeping eager shoppers away from a brand-new farmer’s market across from Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (EMCP). People from the neighborhood and scrubs-clad Einstein staffers cluster around two pop-up canopies, picking and choosing from among the wide array of fresh produce spread out across red checkered tablecloths.
There was a huge selection: fat New Jersey tomatoes, ripe, deep purple plums, juicy watermelons, pale green frying peppers, and many other locally sourced fruits and vegetables. Cash, Philly Food Bucks and WIC cards changed hands. There was a lot of chatter. It seemed like an urban bazaar.
“It’s great to see so many out here choosing fresh produce,” said Adeena Menasha, LiveWell health and wellness program leader at Einstein. “Einstein employees and people from the neighborhood, all side by side. They are walking away happy.”
Samples of this fast and easy salad were handed out at the unveiling of the new farmer's market at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia. It was a big hit.
In fact, we liked it so much, we're sharing it with you, courtesy of A Better Start, the preventive health education component of the Women & Children's Service Line at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
Perspectives: What’s new in cardiac electrophysiology (diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders)? What can be done now that couldn’t be done earlier in the field?
Dr. Mainigi: The field has exploded and advanced dramatically in the last few years. We can now very precisely target and destroy arrhythmias, and offer patients effective control or cure of these potentially life-threatening problems. We can really change peoples’ lives. And the best thing about it is that these procedures are faster and more effective than ever before.
Every day, courageous survivors walk the halls of Einstein Healthcare Network.
Who are these survivors? They are anyone living with a history of cancer—from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. And the physicians and staff of the Cancer Care Programs at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Einstein Medical Center Montgomery are honored to be a part of their lives.
In recognition of National Cancer Survivors Day—an annual celebration of life honoring individuals for their strength and courage—Einstein patients, both current and past, are treated to events in their honor.

Twilight is closing in on a scrubby athletic field toward the rear of Philadelphia’s Northeast High School. Twenty or so young men—and two women—are racing back and forth, wielding what look like canoe paddles in one hand, and slapping a ball back and forth with it. Occasionally, one of those balls goes sailing over a high chain-link fence into traffic on Algon Avenue.
What you’re looking at is mayhem, with a fair amount of body contact—but still, there’s clearly a rhythm and structure to it.
This moderately anarchic activity is hurling, an ancient Gaelic game transported to the United States by Irish immigrants. By some accounts, Irishmen have been playing some version of hurling for more than 3,000 years. The sport is now drawing steadily increasing numbers of American players.
One of them is MossRehab physical therapist Brian Sullivan. A few other Moss physical therapists are out there on the field, too, persuaded by him that playing this obscure Gaelic sport would be a good idea.
Weight-loss surgery can be life-changing and potentially life-saving. At a healthy weight, you feel better, look better and can better enjoy everyday activities. But along with the positive aspects of substantial weight loss comes a problem that affects many individuals: excess skin.
Skin’s natural elasticity—the ability to shrink back after being stretched—is partly determined by genetics. Advancing age, sun exposure and smoking decrease elasticity. There is also likely less elasticity in areas of greatest weight loss—the abdomen, for example.
