Patients at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Atlantic City Campus will get a whiff of spring today, courtesy of the New Jersey Education Association.
When NJEA’s annual Convention – scheduled to conclude today – was canceled due to Superstorm Sandy, it was too late to cancel an order for 100 potted mums that had been purchased in advance to decorate the Atlantic City Convention Center.
"It took us about a minute to figure out the best use for these flower arrangements,” said NJEA President Barbara Keshishian.“We contacted the good folks at AtlantiCare, and arranged for all 100 of them to be delivered to the hospital today."
"We hope these flowers will bring a smile to patients’ faces today, and perhaps remind them that despite Superstorm Sandy and the recent nor’easter, spring will come, along with better times for those affected by Sandy in Atlantic City, southern New Jersey, and throughout our state," said Keshishian.
"We are already planning next year’s convention," she added, "and look forward to a return to Atlantic City next November."
"Our patients and their families will appreciate this thoughtful donation," said Margaret Belfield, chief operating officer, ARMC. “Just as many of our physicians and staff who continued to care for our community were affected by Sandy, so, too, were many of our patients. We thank NJEA for thinking of them, AtlantiCare and our local community.
