Newark – Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, is spearheading a salute to health care workers with support from Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F.

The show of support for medical workers is scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, April 22 at 12 noon.

“It has been a difficult time for law enforcement and all first responders who, like many others, have dealt with the passing of colleagues and friends. At times like this we need to keep spirits as high as possible. As such, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, Newark Police Department, Livingston Police Department and  other partners are gathering tomorrow to salute and thank the hospital staff and experts at University Hospital, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and Saint Michael’s Medical Center for their outstanding work,” said Acting Prosecutor Stephens.

Public safety officials will meet at 11:30AM at West Market Street, in front of Newark Tech High School, and proceed to the main entrance of University Hospital. The procession will then travel through the parking lot area pass the New Jersey Medical School and finally go to Saint Michael’s Medical Center on Martin Luther King Blvd and Central Avenue.
