Graduations, summer events and celebrations Jefferson Hospital I am happy to announce the new addition at Jefferson Hospital is completed. On June 7th, Washington Township Business Administrator Jason Gonter, Councilman Anthony DellaPia, Economic Development Consultant Nancy Mozzachio, and I had the pleasure of joining Vice President, Lisa Morina and Chief Administrative Officer John Graham for a tour of the all-new Silvestri Tower. It was impressive to see the quality of work that was accomplished by Jefferson Hospital. The Township is extremely excited to have this addition as it will only further grow the reputation of Washington Township’s booming medical hub, while also helping Jefferson Health continue to provide its renowned health care to their patients.
