Thousands of employees at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst were surprised with a three-night complimentary vacation, according to an article on the CNN website.

Hyatt and American Airlines announced that the more than 4,000 hospital staff -- including doctors, physician assistants, nurses, and facilities and food service teams would be treated to trips.

The two companies collaborated to treat the frontline workers with free round trip flights on American Airlines to Hyatt hotels in select destinations across the US and Caribbean "to help them recharge and reconnect with their loved ones" once they are able to.

"Every worker at Elmhurst has seen and experienced challenges many of us cannot imagine. They've given so much of themselves and chose to serve their community with care, compassion and equity for every patient," Robert Isom, president of American Airlines, said.
