Ridgewood NJ, Valley Hospital employees and volunteers recently came together to fulfill a patient’s wish to marry his partner right here in the Hospital!

Mark DeBenedectis expressed to Cheel 4 Neuro Charge Nurse Michelle Bower, RN, his wish to marry his partner, Greg, before he was scheduled to have major surgery.

With his surgery taking place just two days away, the entire team jumped into action, transforming the Terrace into a beautiful wedding venue the very next day, complete with decorations, flowers, a harpist, a photographer to memorialize the day and a chaplain to officiate the service. The day was complete with family and friends present to witness the joyous occasion.
