The hospital posted photos of the dozens of pastel pink roses on Instagram, thanking the pair for the gesture.
"Lovely bouquets of flowers donated to frontline healthcare workers by Kim Kardashian West," the hospital wrote, adding the hashtag "#rosesmakemehappy."

"It was a whole bunch of movie stars and some sports figures and they wanted to know about what they could do to stay safe, about wearing masks and avoiding crowds," Fauci, 80, told CNN. "I was impressed by the questions they asked, by their level of sophistication."
Speaking about the Zoom call, Fauci said the participating celebrities have "megaphones" and "could get the word out about staying safe."
"Each of them has enormous numbers of followers on their social media accounts," he told CNN. "I could say to them, for example, it's important to wear a mask, and they get on their accounts and say 'wear a mask' and it goes out to an additional couple of million people."
