Dr. Adam Jarrett, Chief Medical Officer at Holy Name Medical Center in New Jersey, joined us on December 21 to discuss his new book, In the Time of Covid. The book highlights the innovation, creativity and help from unexpected people and places that allowed Holy Name Hospital to secure PPE and equipment, completely redesign the hospital, handle the growing number of dead, and treat what seemed like unending waves of new Covid-19 patients.
Using rich and impactful stories to illustrate his points, Dr. Jarret, with co-author Paul Rosengren, weaves in information on the origins of Covid-19, current treatments and studies, lessons learned, and how his hospital dealt with the onslaught of Covid-19 cases. A must read for anyone wanting to know more about Covid-19 and its impact on us all.
Dr. Adam Jarrett, MD, MS is Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at Holy Name Medical Center.
