  • Some teams at #SinaiHospital swapped scrubs for uniforms as the "O.R. Blades" took on the "Radiology Renegades" in a recent charity basketball game. The Renegades defended their title and toppled the Blades 75-45. The game raised $1,300 to benefit the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai. Thanks to everyone who played, served as referees and came out to support the teams for this great cause! #Community #Team
