On Friday, September 22, a signage dedication ceremony was held at JFK Medical Center as the Emergency Department’s Patient Arrival Pavilion was named after former Edison mayor and long-time member of JFK’s medical/dental staff, Dr. Thomas H. Paterniti. To honor the memory of his brother, Carmen Paterniti and his wife Nan made a $500,000 contribution to the JFK Foundation to establish the Dr. Thomas H. Paterniti ED Endowment Fund, to support the needs of JFK Medical Center’s Emergency Department.
