“This award is for the hospital, but I’d especially like to issues to the chairman of the board, Yan Moshe, for his support of the armed services. So the Department of Defense, I’m part of the Department of Defense, to help issue this award to the hospital, to Mr. Yan,” said Dr. Jose Loor.
Loor is a captain for the 7207th Medical Support Unit of the U.S. Army Reserve Medical Corps. He is also a podiatric foot and ankle doctor who practices at Hudson Regional Hospital and at his private practice, DeLoor Podiatry.
He then presented Moshe with the Patriotic Employer Award before HRH President and CEO Dr. Nizar Kifaieh gave a few remarks.
“We were the first hospital to start drive-through testing, which was later on adopted by the county to be the first testing site in northern New Jersey. That took a lot of guts, that took a lot of preparation for a hospital that was just in existence for two years,” he said.
“After that, we of course put a lot of effort into rebuilding the hospital, we received multiple recognitions here as a hospital, the most recent of which is related to the Institute of Robotic Surgery.”
