On Monday, May 16, HackensackUMC recognized and honored the dedication of the men and women who respond to life saving emergencies.  This year’s theme was “EMS Strong:  Called to Care.”  Award recipients included nurses, paramedics, EMTs, police officers, and firefighters from more than a dozen Bergen County municipalities. Many recipients are HackensackUMC employees.

“EMS Strong: Called to Care is a great theme this year,” said Joseph Feldman, M.D., chairman, Emergency Services, HackensackUMC.  “Our medical center makes the commitment to keep EMS strong and we make the commitment to care about you so that you can continue to care for the patients and the families in our communities, making a difference each and every day, when it matters most.”

This year’s ceremony not only recognized the individuals who have gone beyond and stood out as award winners, but also celebrates the spirit of collaboration between medical centers, physicians, police officers, firefighters, nurses, paramedics and EMTs from the following municipalities:

Closter

Demarest

Cresskill

Hackensack

Paramus

Rutherford

Park Ridge

Montvale

Woodcliff Lake

Westwood

Saddle Brook

River Vale

Lyndhurst

“Our medical center is committed to building and maintaining strong partnerships with our EMS team,” said Ihor S. Sawczuk, M.D., president, HackensackUMC.  “Emergency Medical Services touch upon so many aspects of our hospital from trauma, to neurology, cardiology and pediatrics. Our EMS team members are an integral part of this medical center.”

“The extraordinary skill set, humanism and incredible selflessness is really something for which I wanted to acknowledge our EMS colleagues,” said Sanjeev Kaul, M.D., chief, Trauma Surgical Critical Care and Injury Prevention, HackensackUMC  “Those of us who work inside the hospital don’t put ourselves in harms ways like the team members in Emergency Medical Services.  Without them, we would not be able to partake in the daily miracles we witness in the trauma department.”
