Power Restored at Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck

People with appointments should call ahead, hospital advises.

Power has been fully restored to Teaneck's Holy Name Medical Center, but the hospital advised patients with scheduled appointments to call ahead. 

Holy Name was running from a generator and had put elective procedures on hold through the storm. In a statement, the hospital said it had stocked up on supplies and kept its emergency department fully functional through Sandy. 

Dr. Sheryl Slonim, Holy Name's Executive Vice President, Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer, thanked staffers for their dedication throughout the superstorm. 

“On Monday morning, there was no one without a bag over her or his shoulder, in anticipation of staying overnight at the hospital,” Slonim said in a statement. “We had to make rounds throughout the facility to find places where staff could sleep – that’s the level of commitment our employees have to their patients and to our Medical Center. I’m so impressed with their performance and thank them from the bottom of my heart.”

PSE&G arrived in Teaneck on Tuesday and had also restored power to an area of the town's southeast section. Still, the utility company reported more than 10,000 customers without power Wednesday.
