T he Pride flag was raised at Jersey City Medical Center in celebration of June as Pride Month.

Jersey City Medical Center (JCMC), a RWJBarnabas Health facility, raised the Pride flag on Tuesday, with Michael Prilutsky, President & CEO, leading the ceremony to kick-off the celebration of June as Pride Month.  In addition to the flag remaining throughout the month, the hospital will illuminate the main campus facility with Pride colors at night during the month.

JCMC has received recognition as an LGBTQ Health Equality Leader by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation since 2014, for its continued effort in caring for LGBTQ patients and recognizing the contributions of its LGBTQ employees.

To be designated as an LGBTQ Health Equality Leader, the hospital had to meet four core principles, which included ensuring foundational protection for patients, visitors and staff in policies and provide cultural competency training on LGBTQ inclusion.

To create a culturally inclusive and respectful environment for all patients, Jersey City Medical Center has implemented the policy of displaying both the Legal and Preferred Name on patient wristbands.  Sex at Birth, Gender Identify, Legal Name and Preferred Name remain a part of the registration data collection process and will be accessible in the patient’s permanent record.

JERSEY CITY NATIVE SERVES ABOARD U.S. NAVY WARSHIP HALF A WORLD AWAY

Hospitalman Aaron Gadsden Photo by Senior Chief Petty Officer Gary Ward

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Robert Zahn, Navy Office of Community Outreach

SASEBO, Japan – Hospitalman Aaron Gadsden, a native of Jersey City, New Jersey, joined the Navy to travel. He also joined to gain new experiences. He was inspired by what opportunities the Navy provides for him and his future. 
 

Now, three years later and half a world away, Gadsden serves aboard one of the Navy’s newest and most advanced amphibious ships at Fleet Activities patrolling one of the world’s busiest maritime regions as part of U.S. 7th Fleet. 

“It’s never a dull moment, you are always doing something, you are constantly learning,” said Gadsden. “One of my favorite things about being out here is that you’ll never see the stars anywhere else like you do in the middle of the ocean. It is so surreal and quiet, just absolutely beautiful.” 

Gadsden, a 2011 graduate of University Academy Charter High School, is a hospitalman aboard the forward-deployed amphibious transport dock ship USS Green Bay in Sasebo, Japan.

Senator HYDE-SMITH ISSUES STATEMENT FOR MEMORIAL DAY Mentions bAYONne Born VETERAN Thomas o’Loughlin

Bayonne Born Tom O’Loughlin

Senator Pays Tribute to WWII Veterans, Praises Contributions of “The Greatest Generation”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued a statement in advance of Memorial Day commemorations on Monday in Mississippi and across the nation.

In her statement, Hyde-Smith specifically honors the men and women who served in World War II, offering an individual tribute to Thomas O’Loughlin, 94, who made Laurel his home after fighting, being a prisoner of war, and guarding the Nuremberg Trials.

“Each Memorial Day we, as Americans, take time to honor the heroes who gave their lives in service to our country—from those who died in the creation of this great nation to those who today risk their lives in the most dangerous corners of the world,” Hyde-Smith said.

“As we approach this Memorial Day, I want to take a moment to honor the heroes still among us who served in the Second World War.  There are fewer than half a million of these veterans still living and we lose more than 300 every day,” she said.  “These men and women of the World War II era are truly heroes here among us.”

Mr. President, each Memorial Day we, as Americans, take time to honor the heroes who gave their lives in service to our country—from those who died in the creation of this great nation to those who today risk their lives in the most dangerous corners of the world.

As we approach this Memorial Day, I want to take a moment to honor the heroes still among us who served in the Second World War.  There are fewer than half a million of these veterans still living and we lose more than 300 every day.

These men and women of the World War II era are truly heroes here among us.  In the great battle between good and evil, these heroes advanced over rough terrain against bombs and bullets and tanks. 

Today, their battle is against the unrelenting march of time and the inescapable effects of aging.  For these veterans, whose valor many of us only know from history books or movies, we still have the opportunity and sacred duty to express our gratitude.  So, we honor them as we aspire to be greater than we are.  If we desire to serve more than ourselves, we must honor them.

On this Memorial Day, I take time to draw special attention to one of these heroes, who is now hospitalized in Mississippi.

Ninety-four years ago, Thomas O’Loughlin was born in an Irish-Catholic community in New Jersey.  When his country called him to war, Tom responded and made his first trip to Mississippi, courtesy of the U.S. Army, for training at Camp Shelby.  He deployed to the European Theater where in January 1944 he was captured by the Axis forces and held as prisoner of war for more than a year before liberation.  Following the war, Tom served as a guard during the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals. One of the prisoners in his charge was Deputy Fuhrer Rudolf Hess.

Jersey City to Become the First in New Jersey to Offer On-Demand Public Transit Solution

Goal is to Expand Public Transportation Access

JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven M. Fulop and the City Council will move ahead with a request for proposals (RFP) forming a unique vendor partnership to create an innovative transit system with virtual stops and routes based on passenger demand. This technology-based transit system would be the first of its kind in the State, expanding accessibility to public transit and connecting the North and South regions of the City. Areas of Jersey City will be identified and targeted as primary service areas, with added connectivity to other key shopping and business districts, government facilities, as well as PATH, ferry and light rail stations.

“Typical bus systems are tailored to regulated routes and schedules, which can leave passengers waiting due to delays or having to walk blocks to their bus stop if there is not one close,” said Mayor Fulop. “We want to bring technology into the City that creates a fully dynamic, on-demand transit network. This ultimately will make rides faster, more convenient and connect the North and South parts of the City.”

At least 10% of the program’s fleet will be fully electric vehicles, with a goal to increase the number of electric cars in future years. Prices will be set near current mass transit ticket prices, below or around $2 per-ride, with discounts offered for certain populations including low-income residents, the disabled and senior citizens.

Relying on a user interface and underlying technology, similar to ride-hailing services, the service will primarily focus on “transit desert” areas determined by the City. The system will pick up passengers from predetermined pickup locations and dynamically route shuttles based on passenger demand.

“We are seeking a solution that responds dynamically to demand in an effort to be more efficient and more responsive to the varying needs of our communities,” said Barkha Patel, Senior Transportation Planner. “We’re continually looking to incorporating innovative technology that improves the quality of life for all users and modes of travel within our transportation network. This type of transit system can maximize connectivity and access to transit hubs, major employment, shopping and recreational destinations, and between existing neighborhoods.”
