A Sweet Treat at Jefferson’s Cherry Hill COVID Testing Site

June 3, 2021

For the past year, South Jersey resident and Philadelphia-based Jefferson Health physician Kimberly Heckert, MD, has traveled to the Jefferson Health – New Jersey drive-through testing site for a weekly COVID test. A physiatrist, who works at a Center City sub-acute rehab that has had a high number of COVID-19 patients, Dr. Heckert has been required since mid-March to get a weekly COVID test. On Thursday, June 3, she marked this milestone by bringing donuts to the testing center staff as a “thank you.” Everyone is so kind and friendly, says Heckert, and I wanted them to know how much I have appreciated their hard work over the past year.

The four Jefferson Health – New Jersey Certified Medical Assistants (CMAs) who were working when Dr. Heckert arrived Thursday afternoon were thrilled and touched by her gesture.
