PARAMUS, NJ - Bergen New Bridge Medical Center is commemorating the anniversary of September 11, 2001 with a remembrance ceremony to honor those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks eighteen years ago.
The ceremony will be held on September 11 at 1 p.m. at the Medical Center’s September 11th Memorial site, which was funded by Medical Center employees, supporters, and the hospital’s foundation in 2004. This site is the only one of its kind that lists the names of every person lost. The ceremony is open to all who wish to attend.
“We come together on this date each year to fulfill our promise to ‘never forget’. This ceremony, its meaning and its inclusive nature remind us that we are all one, and even egregious and senseless acts of violence will never erase the memory of those we lost. It is that memory which reinforces the courage, resilience, and love we continue to embrace as a nation,” said Deborah Visconi, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center President and CEO. “I am proud of our memorial site and of our commitment to this ceremony each year. I welcome all those who wish to attend our ceremony to join us and honor those we lost that day in 2001.”
