New York Hospital Queens in Flushing recently announced that the New York Cosmos soccer club had chosen the facility as its official hospital.
To celebrate, members of the professional team visited the hospital on Monday. They included David Diosa, center, and Sebastian Guenzatti, shown here playing with a young patient.
The players gave out miniature soccer balls with autographs to patients.
The new partnership allows NYHQ and the team to work together to raise awareness about bone and joint health.
The Cosmos play their home games at Hofstra University on Long Island.
