NJBIZ Names 2022 Healthcare Heroes

2022 HealthCare Heroes

NJBIZ has named both Thomas Edison State University and one of its alumni among 53 statewide honorees as 2022 HealthCare Heroes.

The University, including the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing and Health Professions, was honored in the Education category, while alum Robert Budsock, ’07, ’15, president and CEO of Integrity House, was selected in the Public Health category.

“Thank you to our staff members who helped during the pandemic, from supporting city of Trenton vaccine clinics to organizing vaccine and booster clinics at TESU,” said Thomas Edison President Merodie A. Hancock, PhD. “It is an exciting time for TESU – we are 50 years young and as bold as ever.”

Budsock earned a Bachelor of Science in Human Services degree as well as a Master of Science in Management from the University.

According to NJBIZ, “The HealthCare Heroes program was created to recognize excellence, promote innovation and honor the efforts of individuals and organizations making a significant impact on the quality of healthcare in New Jersey.” Honorees are chosen by a panel of independent judges and includes both individuals and organizations across 12 categories.
