Zucker’s group, representing the state’s 1,200 cardiologists, is already spearheading a program to reduce so-called “door-to-balloon time,” which refers to how long it takes an arriving heart attack patient to receive an angioplasty, a surgical technique in which a balloon is inserted into a blocked artery and inflated to help restore blood flow. Jacobs acknowledged that moving to a regional system of heart attack care will not be welcomed by all institutions. Cardiac care is a lucrative and highly competitive field in New Jersey and some hospitals could see a loss of revenue under such a plan. The proposal, discussed yesterday during a New Brunswick conference, is bound to create controversy because it will also result in ambulances bypassing hospitals to get to a facility deemed more capable of treating heart attack patients. A state-commissioned report due out soon will focus on where improvements can be made during the pre-hospital phase of care. Under the system proposed yesterday, hospitals that qualify would be given designations of Level I, II and III, based on the level of care available to heart attack patients. Level I would be the highest designation and would be reserved for those hospitals – there are now 18 – with both on-site cardiac surgery and angioplasty capability. “Cardiac care is important but does not exist in a vacuum and we can’t put general medical care at risk,” said Mark Zucker, president of the New Jersey Chapter of the American College of Cardiology, a conference co-sponsor. “New Jersey doesn’t now have a system per se,” said William A. Tansey 3d, a member of the board of directors of the American Heart Association and a cardiologist at Overlook Hospital in Summit. “I think this will happen at a very brisk pace now.” Newark, N.J. When Gov. Jon Corzine suffered life-threatening injuries in a Garden State Parkway crash last month, emergency personnel bypassed closer hospitals to fly him to a Level I trauma center in Camden where they believed he would get optimal care. “In the Governor’s (trauma) case, the risk of the extra time was deemed to be worth it,” said State Health Commissioner Fred Jacobs, referring to what he described as Corzine’s “miraculous” recovery at Camden’s Cooper University Hospital after breaking his left thigh, 11 ribs, collarbone and sternum. “There are systems that work. We have the facilities and we have the manpower,” said Charles Dennis, chairman of Jacob’s Cardiovascular Health Advisory Panel and director of the catheterization lab at Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mt. Laurel. He urged the cardiologists in attendance to lay aside turf issues to ensure patients get the best care. Both association and New Jersey officials are targeting patients who suffer the worst and most easily recognizable type of heart attacks, known as STEMI, or ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Regional systems for heart attack care already are in place in areas of Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Minnesota. The New Jersey proposal was reinforced yesterday by the American Heart Association, which announced its own grassroots initiative to improve access to angioplasty for heart attack patients. “If you can’t put the whole package together, from the patient’s perspective, then who cares?” said Harlan Krumholz, a Yale University professor of medicine, epidemiology and public health. A total of 42 New Jersey hospitals are licensed to provide emergency angioplasty, but don’t offer cardiac bypass surgery. These hospitals would be given designations of Level II or Level III, depending on factors like whether they perform angioplasty or have such services as a dedicated care unit for heart patients or around-the-clock anesthesia available. New Jersey cardiac experts are now looking at creating a similar system for heart attack patients, saying they sometimes languish at hospitals lacking the resources to provide quick assessment and life-saving interventions like angioplasty.

The proceeds generated will be used to deliver help to those affected by addiction and help further plans to open a treatment center in Vermont.Related: Some Educated Guesses About Trey Anastasio’s Mysterious ‘Beacon Jams’“When we thought about playing the Beacon, I was reminded of the meaning of the word,” Anastasio explains along with the announcement. “A beacon is a beam of light, often from a lighthouse, which sends it out to sailors who are lost at sea and all alone. They look for the beacon and it guides them home.”“I’ve been sober for 13 years,” Anastasio says, “It’s a great blessing in my life. We started talking about the idea of a treatment center about a year ago. I was worried that the project would get derailed because of the pandemic but it didn’t – it actually picked up steam; things are really rolling along now. The Beacon Jams emerged as a way to raise money for it while also allowing me to play for the fans again.”“Sometimes gifts come wrapped in strange packages,” Trey adds. “A lot of this is thanks to Twitch and our friends and family at MSG Entertainment. When the idea to do these benefits was born, everybody at MSG Entertainment jumped in and partnered with us and the Divided Sky Fund, which is very kind of them. This is an opportunity for forward motion.”Trey Anastasio – The Beacon Jams – Teaser Video[Video: Trey Anastasio]The Beacon Jams, presented by MSG Entertainment, marks the first-ever virtual residency by the firm, which own Madison Square Garden and the Beacon Theatre, among other venues which Anastasio has frequented with his various touring acts over the years.Related: Trey Anastasio Band Welcomes Page McConnell At Beacon Theatre Comeback Show [Video]“We’re thrilled to be able to partner with Trey on this very special and first-ever virtual residency at the Beacon Theatre to benefit two immensely important causes – the Divided Sky Fund and the WaterWheel Foundation,” said Darren Pfeffer, executive vice president, MSG Entertainment. “As we navigate the live music scene through this socially distant world, we couldn’t think of a more natural way to bring live music to so many fans for such a great cause. Trey’s connection not only with the Beacon Theatre, but with all our venues over the years, including Madison Square Garden, The Chicago Theatre, and Radio City Music Hall, have made this unique concept a perfect partnership.”“We could not be more excited to be part of this amazing partnership with Trey Anastasio and MSG Entertainment to help raise donations for such worthy causes,” said Will Farrell-Green, Head of Music Content at Twitch. “Twitch offers the same intimate experience that artists and their audiences have come to expect from live shows. Over the course of this virtual residency, fans of Trey and Phish will be able to attend performances from anywhere in the world, while feeling like they are right in the front row of the Beacon.”While his 2020 tours were axed along with the rest of the industry, Trey Anastasio has been keeping plenty busy amid the ongoing pandemic. In addition Phish’s new album, Sigma Oasis, Trey also released a quarantine solo LP, Lonely Trip, and served as the first musical guest to perform in-studio on a late-night talk show post-Covid when he performed with The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Issues discussed included health challenges, particularly of court staff but also of court users who are not able to conduct their affairs remotely, either owing to the nature of the services required or the absence or unavailability of desired technology. The gathering noted the challenges in ensuring a) efficient, accessible and effective justice for all court customers; and b) the health and safety of all who work in and use the services provided by the justice sector. At present, four states access the Court in its Appellate Jurisdiction, these being Barbados, Belize, Dominica and Guyana. However, by signing and ratifying the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Court of Justice, Member States of the Community have demonstrated a commitment to making the CCJ their final court of appeal. The Court is the realisation of a vision of our ancestors, an expression of independence and a signal of the region’s coming of age. The latter two sessions focused on solutions that have been implemented in various jurisdictions and the lessons learned from these, as well as the needs that have become apparent in addressing the uncertainty that lies ahead. Participants benefited from hearing measures that have been implemented in other jurisdictions, such as those enabling the conduct of trials in Magistrates’ or Parish courts. In its Original Jurisdiction, the CCJ is critical to the CSME and all 12 Member States which belong to the CSME (including their citizens, businesses, and governments) can access the Court’s Original Jurisdiction to protect their rights under the RTCIn its Appellate Jurisdiction, the CCJ is the final court of appeal for criminal and civil matters for those countries in the Caribbean that alter their national Constitutions to enable the CCJ to perform that role. Oct 16, 2020 The meeting served as a significant first step in combining ideas and efforts across the Caribbean to meet the needs of those working in the justice sector and those seeking to avail themselves of its services. Going forward, the CCJ intends to continue working with its partners and the stakeholders in each of these jurisdictions to ensure that we are all stronger and better positioned to serve our constituents, even when COVID-19 is in our rear view.
