CareOne President and CEO Daniel Straus, CareOne Executive Vice President Elizabeth Straus, and RWJBarnabas Health President and Chief Executive Officer Barry H. Ostrowsky met this week to celebrate CareOne’s commitment to the RWJBarnabas Health Foundation and to announce their partnership in care throughout New Jersey.

Fort Lee-based CareOne operates 32 post acute care, assisted living, and long term acute care hospitals throughout New Jersey, many which operate in the same communities as RWJBarnabas Health’s 11 acute care medical centers.

The two organizations share a common vision of offering a broad continuum of exceptional care options and recognize the importance of health care providers working together to improve the health and well being of the communities they jointly serve.

CareOne and RWJBarnabas Health currently work together to offer seamless acute care to post acute transitions and will continue to develop strategic programs and services aimed at meeting the needs of their patients and the physicians who practice at both RWJBarnabas Health and CareOne.

Daniel Straus stated, “RWJBarnabas Health can be proud of the reputation it has developed throughout New Jersey for the high quality care. Through Barry Ostrowsky’s leadership, RWJBH has pioneered the model of success for the multi hospital system that others will attempt to emulate.”

“I look forward to continuing the strong relationship RWJBarnabas Health has developed with CareOne, an organization that has built an outstanding reputation under the leadership of Daniel Straus,” said Mr. Ostrowsky. “CareOne’s mission of improving the lives of older adults through quality senior care facilities provides a smooth transition for our hospitalized patients. I anticipate a future of collaboration that will enhance the care of the residents in our communities.”

Patricia Sly On Approaching a Suspected Abuse Victim

Patricia Sly, President and CEO of the Jersey Battered Women’s Service, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss what to do if you suspect someone is the victim of abuse.

“The best thing you can do is express your concern in a confidential way,” Sly says of how to approach someone who you suspect may be a victim of abuse. “Tell that what you’ve observed that has caused concern”

“Do it in a non-judgmental way,” she continues. This means to refrain from victim-blaming, which does not help at all. “Leaving is never as easy as it sounds,” Sly explains.

Jersey Battered Women’s Service in Morris County is a full-service domestic violence and domestic abuse prevention agency with volunteer opportunities. Their services include a 24-hour hotline, counseling, safe house, transitional living, children’s services, life skills education, vocational counseling, batterers’ intervention, legal assistance, teen dating violence services and professional training, education and youth prevention programs.
