One of NES’ hardest hit Emergency Departments, Trinitas Regional Medical Center in New Jersey, ceremoniously discharged their 500th patient. As they do with all COVID discharges, “Here Comes the Sun” played over the loudspeaker and onlookers clapped with excitement and emotion.
NES’ Leadership team, along with every NES Site Medical Director, participate together on a daily call to share updates of their emergency departments, and how they are managing the COVID-19 crisis. The call provides a support system for all our physician leaders facing the front-line of this pandemic and an opportunity to share rapidly changing best practices, discuss how this crisis is affecting their EDs and their teams of providers.
On Wednesday’s COVID-19 call, the song “Here Comes the Sun” echoed in the background as Dr. John D’Angelo, Regional and Site Medical Director for the ED at Trinitas shared this milestone and celebration with our team.
He commented, “Today Trinitas Regional Medical Center is at the top. I believe we are approaching the backside side of this crisis. I’m praying and optimistic that this will be the same for others out there.”
Currently, Trinitas Regional Medical Center ranks 4th in New Jersey for number of positive tested COVID-19 patients and has the lowest Case Fatality Rate (CFR), 4.15%, of any of the top 4 counties most affected by COVID-19. Trinitas’ CFR is 3.45 % lower than their neighboring counties.
When sharing these facts with his clinical team, Dr. D’Angelo comments, “You all played a significant role in saving many lives during the peak and will continue to do so as this disease lingers. That is Trinitas Strong!”
NES Health is honored to be in partnership with Trinitas Regional Medical Center; a hospital with a team of providers that is undoubtedly dedicated to serving their community and delivering the highest quality of care to every patient.
