LISA to bring free facials and massages
to frontline caregivers at Sinai Health System hospitals


CHICAGO – JUNE 17, 2020 LISA, a company that partners with employers to provide self-care at the workplace, is bringing its gift of relaxation to hospital staff members who have been working long and hard hours during the COVID-19 crisis. The effort, called LISA for Essential Workers, kicks off Wednesday and Thursday, June 17 and 18, with free facials and massages at two Sinai Health System hospitals in Chicago. Frontline caregivers can sign up for 15-minute on-site services, as a token of gratitude for their commitment and compassion over the past few months.

LISA investor Howard Tullman, general managing partner for G2T3V and Chicago High-Tech Investors, is donating the services to Mount Sinai and Holy Cross Hospitals. Robert Richmond, co-founder/CEO of LISA, says the company’s Artists (service providers) will serve approximately 65 healthcare workers. He plans to bring LISA Artists to other Chicago-area hospitals in the coming weeks, and there are opportunities for organizations and individuals to sponsor care packages (https://www.lisaapp.com/essentialworkers). 

“We apply our expertise to helping people look good, feel good and work better, and we can’t think of a more deserving group right now than those who have been on the front lines in our hospitals throughout this pandemic,” he says.

“I cannot adequately express how much we appreciate this gift of relaxation during such a challenging and exhausting time,” says Karen Teitelbaum, president and CEO of Sinai Health System. “The front-line caregivers are excited to receive such a thoughtful and nurturing gift.”

Richmond says LISA Artists will ensure the experience is enjoyable and safe for all, by wearing masks and gloves and following all CDC and state guidelines. In addition, the Artists’ temperatures will be taken before they begin working at the hospitals.
