We thank our physicians and staff for their committment to caring for our community while many of them and their families were dealing with the effects of Hurricane Sandy. "Many stayed overnight in the hospital for several nights to ensure we could deliver quality care for our community while keeping our patients safe and comfortable. We also appreciated the assistance of Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Atlantic City, Trump Plaza, the Sheraton Atlantic City and the Seaview Stockton in Galloway, who opened rooms for our physicians and staff."
"We drill for weather and other disasters regularly. We were prepared for this storm and acted according to our emergency preparedness plan."
