RAHWAY– Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway is operating at full power and is no longer using backup generators. The hospital had been operating on generator power since Monday afternoon at about 5 p.m., but resumed full power Tuesday evening.
Some 60 additional staff members stayed overnight Monday to care for patients during Hurricane Sandy. RWJ Rahway’s President and CEO Kirk C. Tice extended his sincere thanks to all staff and community personnel who lent a hand during Hurricane Sandy.
The hospital is offering the Rahway community the opportunity to charge cell phones and small communication devices in its lobby, located at 865 Stone Street. There is a 30 minute limit on charging. Those who need medical devices charged, such as nebulizers, are asked to go through the Hospital’s Emergency Department.
The hospital’s cafeteria is open for normal business, visitors and senior diners.
The hospital reminds the community that anyone without power in the city needs to call PSE&G at 1-800-436-7734.
