In October 2017, the Medical Center came under new not-for-profit management, Care Plus Bergen, Inc., and was renamed New Bridge Medical Center. The Medical Center, a clinical affiliate of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, is a 1,070-bed hospital based in Paramus, New Jersey. New Bridge, a safety net facility, provides high-quality comprehensive services including long-term care, behavioral health care and acute care to the greater Bergen County community. As a Veterans Choice provider, The Foundation’s support of programs at New Bridge Medical Center will help further the Medical Center’s mission to care for veterans in their communities.
The Foundation supporting the Medical Center is a not-for-profit entity raising funds to help enhance the lives of the patients, long term care residents, and communities served by New Bridge Medical Center. Projects funded by The Foundation, through generous support of associates like you, include veterans outreach and services, yoga for patients and long term care residents; educational programs for the community, such as NARCAN® training with free sample distribution; continuing education programs for clinical professionals; community wellness events; holiday gifts for patients and long term care residents; and so much more.

Why Support the Foundation?
With a glance at a woman in her sixties who suffered neurological arrest, you can quickly feel her pain and suffering. A woman once so vibrant who cared for her family was left in the fetal position with feeding tubes and severe depression. She initially only responded to French, her native tongue. Her family was told that she might never come out of this state. After receiving therapy and attending classes regularly at the New Bridge Greenhouse and Horticultural Therapy Center, she not only regained her smile, she regained her mobility too. Staff and family members are still astonished by her progress.
Holidays can be hard for those long term care residents who do not have any family. Yet it only takes a warm nose and a wagging tail of one of New Bridge’s pet therapy dogs to bring the smile back to their faces.
The Greenhouse and the Pet Therapy Programs are some of the many projects supported by the Foundation.
Thanks to the support of people like you, this is one of only many similar stories. The Foundation has offered many patients and long term care residents an enhanced quality of life and happiness because of continued and generous donations. Make a donation to the Foundation
