When Hackensack Meridian Health announced our COVID-19 vaccine mandate in July — the first network in New Jersey to do so — we were 71% fully vaccinated.
The last three months have been a marathon effort. Through hard work, patience, perseverance and your commitment to keeping our hospitals and communities safe, I’m proud to report that Hackensack Meridian Health is 99.8% compliant with our COVID-19 vaccine mandate — one of the highest rates in the nation.
This achievement — in the midst of a pandemic and everything you do to provide award-winning, world class health care — is simply extraordinary. It’s a testament to our culture and all of you.
As a small token of gratitude, we will provide all team members with a complimentary meal the week of October 18 (includes hospitals and Medical Group practices). Further details will be provided by your local leadership team in the coming days.
I’m proud to be part of this organization and serve with you — the true American heroes that you are.
With admiration and appreciation,
