Heroes Work Here: Kelley Esposito, Administrative Director, Ancillary Services

Kelley Esposito, Administrative Director, Ancillary Services, was amazed to see the outpouring of support from members of the community – from donations to parades.

Members of the Community Medical Center team in Toms River have been tirelessly caring for patients, and one another, as they respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout it all, they have responded with strength, skill, and compassion, and shown who they truly are – heroes.


COVID-19 has really, really, shooken up our entire community, and we’ve really come together to really know that everyone is supporting each other during this really difficult time. The amount of donations we received at Community Medical Center, whether it was homemade food, homemade masks, PPE from local businesses and just donations from restaurants, and from our neighbors, was just so touching and I can’t even begin to describe the amount of donations. I don’t even think people would even believe us if you saw what our auditoriums looked like, what our hallways looked like, it was amazing. To see the parade of cars though the hospital campus – the mass amounts of emergency vehicles from the police department, the fire departments, all of the emergency services throughout the town and the county. We are all in this together, even though sometimes we feel we’re just so isolated within the walls of the hospital, but it truly is a whole community that’s pulling together.
