NEW BRUNSWICK – The Pediatric Trauma Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) will celebrate incredible patient saves and pay tribute to the contributions and dedication of the first responders and health care professionals who are on the front lines of trauma and emergency care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during its third annual Amazing Saves Picnic on Sunday, June 2.
The picnic will take place from noon to 5 p.m. at the Black Bear Country Club in Millstone Township. This family-friendly event will include a buffet lunch, snacks, laser tag, Segway rides, a rock-climbing wall, water sports, paddle boats, mini golf and more. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for children between the ages of 3 and 11. Members of the media are also invited to attend.
At this year’s picnic, RWJ’s Trauma Team will honor two past patients, Jenna Delacruz of Dunellen and Chris Kline of East Windsor and their families.
Delacruz was struck by a car in Dunellen, breaking a bone in her neck. Thanks to expert care she received through RWJ’s Pediatric Trauma Center, New Jersey’s only designated pediatric trauma center, and Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Health System member PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick, she is healthy again.
While playing football, Kline suffered a potentially serious spleen injury. Working with RWJ Health System partner Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital-Hamilton, RWJ’s Pediatric Trauma Center brought him out of danger and back to the gridiron.
The Amazing Saves Picnic promises a day of fun and celebration, and is open to the public. To learn more, visit www.rwjtrauma.org/amazingsave. Registration is encouraged, but walk-ins on the day of the event are welcome. To register, call 1-888-MD-RWJUH.
