Hospitalist David Kovalsky Honored with ‘Frontline Hero Banner’ Outside Phillies Stadium for 2021 Season

Major League Baseball’s Opening Day is always a special day, especially this year on April 1st for avid Philadelphia Phillies fan David J. Kovalsky, DO, a hospitalist at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital.

Gloucester Township PD Alert: How To Get Your Vehicle Stolen

"I only ran into the store for a minute" or "My car was cold, I wanted to warm it up" are two of the most common excuses that victims of stolen vehicles have told our Gloucester Township Police Officers over the years.
