Weehawken resident concerned about St. Mary

Dear Editor:

None of us can afford to ignore the dilemma St. Mary Hospital in Hoboken finds itself in with the threat of imminent closing. St. Mary is a community hospital - a place with a friendly staff where patients feel they are being treated not only medically, but also as a human being. During the past month my mother has received excellent care from this hospital. We found the doctors to be dedicated, capable and attentive. The nurses and nurse assistants were caring and responsible.

The combined population of Hoboken and bordering communities is large and depends upon the medical/surgical excellence, accessibility and overall quality of care provided by St. Mary Hospital.

We have two New Jersey governmental officials living in Hoboken who need to hear of our concern; i.e. Jon Corzine, Office of the Governor, P.O. Box 001, Trenton, NJ 08625, phone: 609-292-6000 and Senator Bernard F. Kenny, 235 Hudson St. Suite 1, Hoboken, NJ 07030, phone: 201-653-1466. Robert Menendez also resides in Hoboken, and although a U.S. Senator, we hope he is still interested in issues that affect his neighborhood. You can reach him at 502 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, DC 20510, 202-224-4744. Don't delay; contact them as soon as possible. Tell them that, as their constituents, we depend upon their experience and ability to arrive at a solution that will ensure the continued service of St. Mary to the citizens of our communities, which have been well served by this hospital. 
Sincerely yours,
Evelyn M. Dette
