WOODBRIDGE – State Sen. Joseph Vitale, a veterans advocate, recently conducted an inspection tour of the facilities at the East Orange Veterans Administration Medical Center. He also presented a proclamation to Kenneth Mizrach, director of New Jersey Health Care System.
Vitale (D-Woodbridge) said that the Woodbridge Township veterans have reported satisfactory results with the care received at both the East Orange and Lyons VA hospitals.
During the tour, the senator met with Michelle Stefanelli, program manager of the Operation Iraqi Freedom program, who advised that the unit has received “Best Practice for the Case Management Program” from an internal VA review group. The VA now screens all returning combat veterans for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, and provides follow-up care if necessary.
Vitale said, “It is important for us to remember that America rose to greatness through the sacrifices of our veterans and they deserve the best of care.”
