LONG BRANCH, NJ — For a child, a trip to an emergency room is always difficult, but when the visit occurs on a holiday, it is even tougher.
For children seen on Easter Sunday in the Pediatric Emergency Department at The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, a generous donation from an area business made the visit easier.
Dana Leber, general manager of the Banana Republic store located at The Shoppes at Old Bridge, traveled to Monmouth over the Easter weekend to deliver a basket full of holiday toys and treats for children seen in the hospital on Easter. Leber is the sister-in-law of Monmouth Medical Center Emergency Department physician Elizabeth Gilman, M.D.
“The donation was a generous spontaneous gesture from Dana and the Banana Republic staff,” Dr. Hanlon says. “Our patients and their families really loved it.”
Monmouth’s Pediatric Emergency Department is a child-friendly facility with private examination rooms staffed 12 hours a day with pediatric emergency specialists.
