TRINITAS COMMENDED FOR FLU-FIGHTING EFFORTS
Medical Center achieves 97% employee vaccination rate
Jackie Cornell, Principal Deputy Commissioner of the State Department of Health, paid a visit yesterday to Trinitas Regional Medical Center to commend the medical center for its effort to vaccinate almost all of its employees in an attempt to prevent the spread of the flu among employees, patients and visitors to Trinitas.
"New Jersey has seen more cases of the flu recently than we have in many years," said Cornell to a group of Trinitas employees and members of the media, who accompanied them on a tour of the new Emergency Department and the Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center.
"We are here today because we want to highlight best practices in combating the flu. We congratulate Trinitas on achieving a 97% staff vaccination rate. You are setting an (excellent) example."
Further, Cornell announced that her department is planning to present Trinitas with the new Healthcare Innovators Award in the near future.
