‘Incredible Morale Boost:’ Military Medical Team Arrives At NJ University Hospital – Gothamist

A 25-person military medical team has arrived in New Jersey to help the overwhelmed University Hospital in Newark.

It’s one of many facilities across the country to which President Biden ordered deployments to ease staffing shortages caused by a surge in the omicron coronavirus variant and a swarm of health care employees leaving the profession due to burnout. The team will be in place for at least a month, assisting everything from respiratory care to covering night shifts for worn-out staff.
