Hear What Our Patients Have to Say

“I will always be immensely grateful to the skillful team at Jersey City Medical Center who transformed what might have been the last day of my life to the beginning of the rest of my life!”

“One day in November without warning I suffered an acute, near-fatal cardiovascular emergency. The EMS team from Jersey City Medical Center arrived within moments of the 911 alarm and they provided swift and highly professional transport to the Emergency Room. With sophisticated technology an appropriate diagnosis was made and within a mere 90 minutes of my arrival to the hospital I was in an operating room where Dr. Kirk McMurtry devoted the next eight hours to a complicated reconstruction of a central part of my circulation. The post-operative technical and personal care in the critical care units was outstanding.”
- William A. Tansey III, MD

“Thank God it happened here and only five minutes from my work... I had these great doctors who gave me another life.”
