Askonim on Monday attended a ribbon cutting ceremony, celebrating the expansion of Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s dedicated pediatric emergency room.

Until now, after the standard pediatric emergency room hours, children would sit in the general emergency room between adults and all other patients. The room will now be open 24 hours, and be fully staffed.

Among the attendees to congratulate the hospital, were (L-R) longtime Askan and Hatzolah Captain Meir Lichtenstein, Hatzolah Captain Yoel Tesser, and Lakewood Bikur Cholim Director Yehuda Kaszirer.

“Hatzolah congratulates and thanks JSMC for this expansion of services – allowing for even more premium care for our sick pediatric patients,” Hatzolah told TLS. “With the help of Bikur Cholim’s continued advocacy we are pleased that we have further resources to serve our Kehillah.”

  1. i just want to take this opportunity to thank these four tzadikkiim and all those that could not attend the ceremony but also heavily involved. There really are no words to express the appreciation we have for their incredible support and diligent efforts. In brief, May Hashem repay them for all they do with long healthy lives, healthy families, and all of Hashem’s brochos b’ravchus. It is beyond grasping how much effort is put in to get to this point, and the feeling of supportiveness that a family with a r’l sick family member gets when he is surrounded by the ‘extended’ family of this team cannot be measured. Hatzlocha !
