Share Your Thanks

Last week, staff at RWJBarnabas Health at Bayonne found a simple three word message scrawled in chalk on the sidewalk: “Heroes work here.”

Through the action of an anonymous individual in Bayonne, one little gesture had enormous impact.

And we couldn’t agree more. The 44,000 employees, clinicians and physicians throughout RWJBarnabas Health are working tirelessly to protect and keep New Jersey’s residents, families, friends and colleagues safe and healthy in the face of this unprecedented pandemic.

Be a hero yourself and help us recognize these selfless individuals, especially those on the front lines.

We are in this together. Let’s beat COVID-19 together. Let’s be healthy together.

Notes of Thanks

  • I'd like to thank all doctors, nurses and other workers in RWJ ER and neurology department who helped my father to fight his illness during his stay in the hospital in July 2021 for their dedication and excellent care. From the bottom of my heart - thank you, thank you, thank you! Alex
  • I want to thank everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, especially the EMA5 Department for the wonderful care that I received from February 02 - 05, 2021. My wife Debbie is so grateful to all of you for taking care of me when she was not allowed to visit due to the pandemic. May God continue to bless everyone of you. William
  • Just to say a simple thank you actually falls shy/short of how I really feel about health care professionals. I say that to say this, being a health professional myself and being admitted to the the Robert Wood Johnson Emergency room on the morning of December 30th 2020 for an unrelated Covid-19 issue concerning an acute onset of Extremely High and unusual blood pressures. My first thoughts were am I having a stroke? After immediately arriving at the ER entrance every precaution was made preventing minimal exposure to me and others in the midst of this pandemic. I was then swiftly transported to the stroke protocol team where they assessed me, reassessed and assessed me again as if they were like a fine tooth comb meticulously looking for any signs or symptoms of a stroke and all at the same time blood work was being drawn. From there, I was immediately taken to CAT scan, MRI more monitoring & additional blood work. I felt like they were not going to let anything happen to me. I felt safe & protected. Even as a health professional I admit my anxiety was through the roof. I've seen these signs and symptoms a thousand times from patients I've personally had the privilege of caring for. I am personally humbled and incredibly grateful at the highest levels of care that I received from the entire team involved in my care. In keeping with the thank you note privacy policy I'll only use first names but they know who they are. Thank you Sherry, Amanda, Nancy, Gabby, Steven, Jerry, Nurses, NP, Doctors, Managers, EMS, admissions, patient transport, house keeping and security. In spite of the unprecedented Covid-19 your patient care was phenomenal, above and beyond. At the end of the day I was medically cleared to go home. RWJ Hospital Emergency Room, New Brunswick NJ, Heroes, Rockstars, outstanding health care professionals. Kevin BS, RN CUSN '91 Kevin
