WATCH: Hospital discharges 750th COVID-19 patient


LONG ISLAND, NY (CNN) — A hospital in Long Island discharged its 750th COVID-19 patient Tuesday.

That’s an impressive milestone when you consider NYU Winthrop only has 511 beds.

The suburban medical center was designated as one of Gov. Cuomo’s eight COVID-19 hotspots in the state. It’s first coronavirus case was just six weeks ago.

Since that time, the staff has now had 750 patients recover successfully from the virus.
