New York—November 14, 2013
Hackensack University Health Network, the largest healthcare system in northern New Jersey, includes Hackensack UMC, the No. 1 hospital in New Jersey; Hospital for Special Surgery, ranked No.1 nationally in orthopedics; and NewYork-Presbyterian, the No. 1 hospital in the New York metropolitan area. The three health care providers will work closely with the Super Bowl Host Committee, the National Football League and governmental agencies to ensure that any medical and emergency needs are met during Super Bowl week activities, and that volunteers, staff and fans stay healthy and safe during the Super Bowl. All three medical centers are sponsors of the New York Giants and will have a strong presence at many of the events leading up to and during Super Bowl week.
“Having the Super Bowl in the highly populated NY/NJ area requires highly skilled medical expertise, which we are fortunate to have in these leading hospitals. Their designated role will be ‘Official Health Service Providers,’ as we prepare to host a successful Super Bowl XLVIII in the region,” said Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Company. “We are confident that these institutions will be a great resource to us and the community during this historic event.”
