Elizabeth High School teens connect with elder patients at Trinitas’ Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) that helps keep older patients alert during a hospital stay. Alice Williams shared stories about her travels around the world with Georgio Molta and Nikita Verme during a recent craft session.


With Trinitas in the background, Rod Muench, ERN, MPS, MICP, Director of PreHospital Services, and Brant Maslowski, BA, MICP, Coordinator of the Trinitas MICU, stand with pride at the Trinitas Paramedics vehicle. Under Maslowski’s direction, the TRMC MICU achieved the 2015 Mission: Lifeline® EMS Silver Level Recognition Award from the American Heart Association (AHA). The TRMC MICU, which delivers advanced life support for the City of Elizabeth, received the recognition for delivering quality care to patients experiencing chest pain. The award was based on the 2014 emergency response data Trinitas supplied to the AHA.


New Jersey’s own and Saturday Night Live funny man, Joe Piscopo, left the microphone of his current talk-show gig on Salem Media’s AM970 “The Answer” to visit with Trinitas as part of the Ice Cream Social held every year during Hospital Week. The “meet and greet” with the SNL alum happened after this issue of EDGE went to press, but take it from us, he didn’t disappoint.


The Elizabeth Rotary Club connected with the Rotary Interact Club of Elizabeth High School for a day of prepping the beach for summer. The Ocean Action Beach Sweep brought out teens who rolled up their sleeves, performed a valuable community service, and took in lots of rays at the one and only Jersey shore.
