PROSECUTOR CORONATO TO GET SHOUT OUT FROM RWJ BARNABAS HEALTH ON CBS RADIO 660 THE FAN DURING APRIL 9 AND APRIL 16 YANKEE GAME’S

Here is the text of the announcement:

RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey’s largest hospital and healthcare system, salutes Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato, in recognition of his accomplishments and law enforcement initiatives enacted in Ocean County, New Jersey.

Prior to becoming Ocean County’s prosecutor in 2013, Coronato had a distinguished law career in both civil and criminal practice.

Through Coronato’s leadership Ocean County was the first county in New Jersey to utilize the “antidote” Narcan for opioid and prescription drug overdoses.

Coronato and Ocean County worked with RWJBarnabas Health to establish the OORP program, which gets individuals that have overdosed from opiates into treatment from hospital emergency rooms.  He also launched a Blue Harp program where an individual with substance abuse can go to an Ocean County police department and be placed into treatment with no criminal charges

Coronato has twice been named “Prosecutor of the Year” and has received honors from NJTV, New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies, Peace Island Institute and DART Coalition.

RWJBarnabas Health salutes Joseph D. Coronato, a lifelong Yankees fan, for his dedication and support of New Jersey’s communities. RWJBarnabas Health. Let’s Be Healthy Together.
