“We (St. Luke’s) emphasize care not solely for achievement of physical well being but the whole person, body, mind and spirit. In this sense I feel there are many levels of connection between BAPS and St. Luke’s. We look forward in the future programming in partnership with BAPS.” – Mr. David J. Fine, president and chief executive officer at St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System

It’s a phenomenal service and it’s a phenomenal event. I have been to hundreds of health fairs and I have never seen one like this.” – Mrs. Irene Helsinger, senior vice president and chief administrative officer at St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System
