NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- Recently, members of the Heart and Vascular Hospital team at Hackensack University Medical Center visited the Hovnanian School, in New Milford, to teach students about dealing with emergency situations.

Students from fifth- through eighth grade learned about dialing 911, recognizing signs of a heart attack and learning what to do in an emergency situation. They also took the Early Heart Attack Care Oath and were awarded certificates after performing mock 911 drills.

HackensackUMC is a 775- bed nonprofit teaching and research hospital in Bergen County. It's the largest provider of inpatient and outpatient services in the state. Founded in 1888, it was the county’s first hospital. It is now the flagship hospital of Hackensack University Health Network, one of the largest health networks in the state.
