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.”

The First Annual New York Denim Days

#HipNJ, get ready to cross the Hudson River for the fashionista event of the fall!

An exciting festival called Denim Days will be hitting New York City’s streets from September 30th to October 1st. Founders Eric Goldstein and Andrew Olah introduced the Denim Days festival to Amsterdam in 2014. Since then, it has become a staple event for denim fans and fashion lovers. The first annual New York Denim Days seeks to celebrate New York’s take on the versatile thread we all love to wear.

The city’s denim culture will be displayed on Saturday and Sunday, and everyone from fashion bloggers to families is invited to show off their own unique style.

The festival will not only feature live entertainment, food trucks, art, and kids activities, but also pop up shops, vintage showrooms, workshops, and exhibits—all showcasing the indigo process. Over forty-five established brands will be attending, some offering limited edition collections, including BLKSMTH, Jean Shop, Levi’s Made & Crafted, 3×1, and more. Some highlights include live dyeing of denim by Sayaka Toyama, and on-site jean repairs by denimrepair.com, a site dedicated to fixing your favorite blue jeans in an eco-friendly way.

Denim Days’ expansion from Amsterdam to New York proves how eager consumers are to understand what they are wearing. For those in the denim community, it is a chance to share their craft and educate others about the art. Interactive displays from denim brands as well as lectures from experts allow for this opportunity. New York Denim Days lets consumers connect with the people who make the clothing they love. It is a revolutionary event for fashion.

The first day of the event will be hosted at Metropolitan Pavilion. Tickets are available at denim-days.com/ny/tickets for $10 and at the door for $15. Students are $5 with valid identification. Denim Days will conclude at the 18th street festival, in between 6th and 7th avenue, and is free to visit.

Gary S. Horan Emergency Department

Introducing the Gary S. Horan Emergency Department

Last November, #HipNJ embarked on a special “Giving Tuesday” campaign to raise money and awareness for Trinitas Regional Medical Center‘s Emergency Department expansion. Ten months later, we are proud to unveil the brand new, $18.7 million Gary S. Horan Emergency Department!

On September 12th, #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino attended the ED’s dedication ceremony. The rooftop gala was attended by the hospital’s generous supporters and compassionate staff members that were so instrumental in helping raise funds for this much-needed expansion. Notable attendees included Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage, Union County Sheriff Joseph Cryan, and Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth and Vice Chair, Trinitas Sister Rosemary Moynihan.

“Today really is a milestone that we have finished our Emergency Department. One-hundred percent has funded by donors, and we’re very thankful to each and every one of them for doing so much for us,” said Nadine Brechner, Vice President, Chief Development Officer at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.

The 24,000 square foot Emergency Department expansion raises the number of treatment beds from 27 to 45, and provides separate treatment areas where the most appropriate care can be given to seniors, families and behavioral patients. The department is outfitted in the latest medical technology, including a 128-slice CT scanner that can produce diagnostic scans in seconds.
