SJFMC honored longtime public servant for patients, Dr. Nancy Merle, MD with a dedication ceremony during National Health Center Week 2017. Political parties united while vowing to protect Americans in search of quality health care as our Pleasantville Health Center officially became the Merle Pavilion.
Assemblyman Vincent Mazzeo (D) said, “SJFMC saves lives and our community would be in bad shape without your help. I am just doing my job fighting for what is right in Trenton but Dr. Merle, I love your fire power and I thank you for your commitment to this organization.” Assembly Chris Brown (R) said, “There shouldn’t be barriers to health care, shouldn’t be barriers to get the basic needs we all deserve and require. With this Pavilion, and Dr. Merle’s name on it, I know that your continued mission of breaking down barriers will be a success.”
SJFMC Board Members were also honored and presented with plaques and certificates during the service. The night ended with a huge Health Fair Block Party outside of our Pleasantville Health Center. Hundreds of people attended and enjoyed free food, health screenings, dancing and giveaways.
