PATERSON, NJ [NOVEMBER 23, 2010] - Staff at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) came together in the spirit of excellence to help create a lifelong memory for one patient: his wedding day.
Jose Otero, an oncology patient at SJRMC, and his now wife Gladys Otero, stood before family and friends, including many nurses and other St. Joseph's staff members, to express their commitment towards one another. Passaic Mayor Dr. Alex D. Blanco conducted the wedding ceremony for the bride and groom, both residents of Passaic. SJRMC staff contributed to the celebration by providing decorations, the bride's bouquet, the wedding cake, invitations, and a special blessing provided by the Pastoral Care Department.
