The LeFrak family, principal partners in the Newport development in Jersey City, has donated $100,000 to the Jersey City Medical Center Foundation to support the hospital’s efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are proud of the staff at Jersey City Medical Center,” Jamie LeFrak, vice chairman of LeFrak and former board member of JCMC, said in a prepared statement. “The compassionate patient care being provided during these extremely challenging times is both courageous and heroic. In the 35-plus years we’ve been at Newport, and as a former board member, we recognize Jersey City Medical Center as an irreplaceable anchor institution in Jersey City.
“We believe it is our duty as a good corporate citizen to do everything possible to support the hospital now more than ever.”
