NEW BRUNSWICK — As part of the Christie Administration’s Season of Service, Health Commissioner Mary E. O’Dowd delivered over 200 toys donated by Department staff to patients in PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick on Monday, Dec. 17 as part of the hospital’s annual Holiday Giving Program. The commissioner also read a children’s holiday story, “The Snowy Day,” by Ezra Jack Keats to a group of young patients.
“The holidays are the perfect time to recognize the excellent care provided to thousands of special needs children at Children’s Specialized Hospital,” said O’Dowd. “It was an absolute joy to share the spirit of the holidays with such loving and special children.”
O’Dowd chose Children’s Specialized Hospital because of the unique role it plays in providing rehabilitation and specialty physician services to 20,000 children with special needs each year in New Jersey.
“The Commissioner remains a steadfast advocate for public health and the needs of children. Our kids were thrilled to receive her generosity and kindness,” said Amy B. Mansue, president and CEO, Children’s Specialized Hospital. “New Jersey is fortunate to have her leadership and her compassion.”
