The CEO of Cayuga Health System was recently honored for his leadership during the covid-19 pandemic by Tompkins Trust Company and the Tompkins Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Martin Stallone is the recipient of their April 2021 Community Hero of the Month Award.
His experience in the healthcare industry spans a total of 17 years.
Throughout the public health emergency, Dr. Stallone and his team headed a variety of contributions, including:
- Collaborating with Tompkins County, Cornell University, and others to coordinate the county’s overall pandemic response and contribute any resources necessary to do so;
- Planning and executing the coordination of one of the highest capacity testing operations in New York State;
- Continuously innovating and evolving that operation to increase testing response and safety;
- Setting up a high capacity vaccine clinic and consistently delivering the highest volume of vaccines in the Southern Tier, in collaboration with the Tompkins County Health Department.
Dr. Stallone also supported a provider mission to New York City last spring, contributing to New York State’s ability to respond during the onset of the pandemic.
He will receive a Community Hero of the Month plaque and a few additional surprises from Tompkins Trust Company.
“We are honored to present this award to Dr. Stallone and express our sincerest gratitude for the efforts he and his team have provided Tompkins County throughout the pandemic as well as before,” said Tompkins Trust Company President and CEO Greg Hartz.
Jennifer Tavares, President & CEO of the Tompkins Chamber said, “Dr. Stallone has spared no expense or resource in supporting our community through the last 13 months. We appreciate all that he has contributed and feel that he has led his team and Cayuga Health System’s response admirably.”
