NBMC’s Michael Paolello and Lisa Centeno to speak on Opioid Addiction in Teens

The Valley Hospital, New Bridge Medical Center and the Ridgewood Municipal Alliance present

It Started in the Doctor’s Office – Opioid Addiction in Teens

Studies show that most American teenagers who abuse opioid meds first received the drugs from a doctor for pain concerns from things such as a dental procedure or an athletic injury. This, coupled with stress and pressure to succeed socially and the fact that the adolescent brain is still growing, means that teens are vulnerable to addictions. This program will discuss the current opioid abuse problem in teens and why teens are at a higher risk for developing an addiction. Learn about prevention and signs of addiction as well. Hear about a recovering addict’s journey from injury to opioid addiction and finally to heroin addiction.

New Bridge Medical Center Enters into Partnership with Clover Health

New Bridge Medical Center Enters into Partnership with Clover Health

April 8, 2018

(Paramus, NJ) – New Bridge Medical Center has entered into a new partnership with Clover Health, a Medicare Advantage PPO plan.  As of December of 2017, New Bridge Medical Center and all New Bridge Medical Center physicians are in-network with Clover.

New Bridge Medical Center, a clinical affiliate of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, is part of New Bridge Health, a health care system uniting services across the continuum of care. Care Plus Bergen, Inc. the not-for-profit operator of New Bridge Medical Center since October 1, 2017, is an innovative alliance between three world-class partners – Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Integrity House, and Care Plus NJ Inc., manages the day to day operations of New Bridge Medical Center, strengthening the hospital’s core services of behavioral health, addiction treatment, long-term care, and acute care.

“One of the goals for New Bridge Medical Center was to ensure greater access to healthcare for all Bergen County residents, as New Bridge Medical Center continues to play a critical role in health care delivery for patients and families in Bergen County and across New Jersey,” said Deborah Visconi, President and CEO of New Bridge Medical Center.  “In addition to its role as a safety net facility, adding the ability for County residents who have health coverage through managed care plans to use the services of the County’s hospital is a vital component in our mission to become a destination facility providing quality and cost effective care to all the communities we serve,” said Visconi. “This is the first step toward achieving that goal.”
