The Brooklyn Hospital Center has announced that it has received the donation of three top-of-the-line MetroNaps EnergyPods for one year.

The sleep pods are designed to induce power naps for the hardworking hospital staff, especially those suffering from PTSD, insomnia and depression due to the stress brought on by the current pandemic.

The contribution, which totals close to $45,000, comes from MetroNaps/Restworks, an industry leader providing workplace rest and napping installations to reduce stress, increase alertness, boost productivity, as well as enhance work performance and safety.

“We are extremely grateful to MetroNaps/Restworks for their ongoing support and generosity. As we continue the fight against coronavirus, we want to ensure that our physicians and staff feel connected and supported,” said Jessie Van Daele, PhD, TBHC’s director of clinical research.

Located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, TBHC is a clinical affiliate of The Mount Sinai Hospital and an academic affiliate of The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

“Kind and caring gestures from our friends and neighbors — such as this thoughtful gift — have lifted the spirits of our entire hospital. We thank MetroNaps/Restworks for supporting our healthcare heroes,” said Deborah Niederhoffer, vice president and chief development officer at TBHC.
