Children of AtlantiCare physicians and staff visited the Emergency Department at Mainland Campus and enjoyed having pretend head- and wrist-wounds dressed and seeing an ambulance. The students donned gloves and surgery hair covers to learn about hospital precautions.

More than 100 children, ages nine to 13, attended AtlantiCare's Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day® Thursday April 24. Children/dependents of AtlantiCare physicians and staff took tours of AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center's Mainland or City campuses, and where appropriate visited their parent's and/or guardian's work area in ARMC or other areas of AtlantiCare.

AtlantiCare's Human Resources Department organized the annual educational event that gives children the opportunity to learn about careers in healthcare and to see how the work their parent or loved one does contributes to the care AtlantiCare provides. Among areas children visited were the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth at ARMC Mainland Campus; Harrah's Regional Trauma Center at ARMC Atlantic City Campus, and the Emergency Center, Laboratory, Radiology, Security, and Sterile Processing departments in each campus.

"You are the future of our workforce," said Greg Hamaty, director of Human Resources, AtlantiCare, addressing the participating students at Mainland Campus. "I hope that today shows you what a career in healthcare can look like, and the many jobs that a career in healthcare can entail: from food service to security, accounting to Human Resources, and – of course, patient care. AtlantiCare works to increase the health of our community, and we appreciate all the hard work that your moms and dads, your aunts and uncles and guardians do here."
