President and CEO of The Valley Hospital and Valley Health System
“As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve, we understand that it is a significant source of concern for all of us, our family members, and the communities we serve. I personally take comfort knowing that at Valley we have an incredible team that has always come together in times of challenge. We are responding quickly to daily information and updates from federal and state officials. I have confidence in our organization’s collective ability to respond to this unprecedented healthcare crisis.”
“This is a rapidly evolving situation, and Valley is in frequent communication with elected officials and healthcare leaders to ensure we can respond appropriately as situations arise. I have spoken with New Jersey Governor Murphy, Congressman Gottheimer, Bergen County Executive Tedesco, and other elected leaders. I am in contact with representatives from the American Hospital Association, the New Jersey Hospital Association and other hospital colleagues to coordinate our efforts.
I want you to know that the health and safety of our patients and staff is paramount and we continue to heed the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Jersey Department of Health.
Like healthcare providers across the country, employees at The Valley Hospital and at all of Valley Health System’s locations have stepped up to respond to this national emergency. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for their dedicated and diligent efforts during this public health crisis.
Please know that Valley remains here for the community during this very challenging time.”
