A Note to a Front Line Worker: Patricia McCann

Patricia McCannPatricia McCann is a Registered Nurse and Nurse Manager at NYU Hospital. For over 20 years she worked grueling hours in the ER. For the past 10 years, she has worked as a Nurse Manager in Pre-Admission Testing. When the COVID-19 hit New York City and this unprecedented burden was placed on all our Health Care Workers she and her team were deployed back to where they were needed.

Patricia, or Patty as we know her, is a prime example of loyalty. Not only is she loyal to her team on the frontline she is loyal to IGC Hospitality. She has thrown many events at our venues and brings her nursing co-workers to our midtown stops after their long days. Before her career as a nurse, over 40 years ago, she was a “barmaid” at the legendary Boardy Barn in the Hamptons. Those countless summer hours helped put her through nursing school and raise three handsome sons. She is a regular at Park Avenue Tavern and is loved by our staff, especially me, her son, Michael.

For us at IGC Hospitality, we can’t thank her enough for her continued service to all of those that need it at this difficult time.

Love you, Mom,
Michael McCann, General Manager Park Avenue Tavern

Patrick Bourke, Nurse and Frontline Worker during COVID-19 Pandemic

From the early days of Metro 53 and Saloon, Patrick Bourke was one of IGC’s best customers;  which is part of the reason why we brought him on as a trusted member of our team.  He also serves on The Executive Health Team at New York-Presbyterian Hospital as a Nurse Clinician. His passion in life is helping others, his calm and expert approach in all of this calamity serves as a guideline for others in the response to COVID-19. 

With mandated visitor restrictions in place for patients, nurses like Patrick are often serving as an extended family member tasked with providing dignified care.  In other scenarios, COVID-19 patients seeking treatment in the comfort of their own home, Patrick is the person that makes it possible.  For us at IGC, we salute Patrick for his efforts as one of the New York City front line workers and thank him for his endless leadership in the battle against COVID-19.
