The Connie Dwyer Breast Center

Meet the NEW Connie Dwyer Breast Center

November 1st not only marked the beginning of the Holiday season (too soon?), but for many families affected by breast cancer, the real gift is knowing that November 1st also marked the beginning of an important fundraising campaign that will bring the Connie Dwyer Breast Center, a state-of-the-art breast health facility sponsored by the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, to the Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ.

During each Tuesday in November, there will be pop-up party locations staged at Bloomingdale’s Short Hills. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in different activities for varying amounts of donation. With a minimum donation of $1, visitors will be gifted with Smarties® candy. For a donation of $5, attendees will receive goodies and/or gift cards from partnering brands and businesses, while supplies last. For $10 or more, participants will be entered-to-win a gift from Bloomingdale’s Short Hills.  Anyone who visits the pop-up location will be encouraged to partake in an interactive photo booth that will tie directly to the Trinitas social media awareness campaign running online.  

The campaign will conclude on the national day #GivingTuesday, November 28. On that day, there will be a live Facebook event hosted by New York Giants legend Ottis Anderson and other guests that will encourage viewers to donate funds through the Trinitas Health Foundation website portal.

Donations to the campaign will be collected all month long, and every bit counts – Donate today! And for more information about the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation, visit CDBF.org.

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.”
