HOBOKEN, NJ - Hoboken University Medical Center was one of 17 hospitals through Hudson, Bergen, and Essex County to benefit from the generosity of IBEW Local 164, the Paramus based union that represents more than 3,000 electrical workers.

In total the union donated more than $50,000 worth of PPE, including KN95 masks, gowns, hand sanitizer, and food to the hospitals, also including Jersey City Medical Center, in their continued fight against COVID-19.

Business Manager Daniel Gumble said the donations were made as a way of showing gratitude to the hospital workers for their “courage and leadership during these trying times.”
