Cristina Simeone is the Clinical Resource Director at Jersey City Medical Center, RWJBarnabas Health. Cristina Simeone showed her husband Tom a picture of an isolation tent created to protect clinicians transporting COVID-19 patients and asked if he could build them. Tom took action, building 3 IsoPods that they donated to Jersey City MC and he continues to build. Thanks to the ingenuity and generosity of people like the Simeone’s we will win this battle!
