Fox Business report claims Morristown Medical Center's 'Building an ACO' YouTube video mocks patient care access.
A top Morristown Medical Center official criticized a Fox Business report that accused the hospital and Atlantic Health, its parent organization, of mocking patient care access in an amateur video produced to internally encourage doctors to join Accountable Care Organizations--part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. The Jan. 30 report, by Fox Business reporter Elizabeth MacDonald, claims the video makes fun of health care access, telling its audience they can make more money for doctors and hospitals by preventing patients from being readmitted to hospitals. Doctors are shown blocking the door of a hospital, "to stop patients from being readmitted for more care, dollar bills exchanging hands …

Maxxim James Orlick, of Manville, born at noon on this rare day.
New Year's Baby? Millenium Baby? That's nothing. At Morristown Medical Center, it was all about the 12/12/12 Baby. But, even that was not enough for this once in a Gregorian Calendar occasion for Maxxim James Orlick, of Manville, born at noon, Dec. 12, 2012. Yup, 12/12/12/12. That should be pretty easy to remember. Pamela Garretson, public relations for Morristown Medical Center, noted mom Jillian was scheduled for a Cesarean section at 11 a.m. but, "the operating room was running slightly behind, so her baby was born exactly at 12," she said. Both mom and son, as well as father Dustin and big brother Jackson are doing well. In total, the maternity ward at MMC welcomed more than a dozen (another 12!) babies into the world on this rare day.
