Neighbors Healing Neighbors
We understand that when we have a positive impact on one neighbor, that,
in turn, impacts the entire community. Go behind-the-scenes of our Neighbors
Healing Neighbors ad campaign for exclusive interviews with our patients
and the surgeon, paramedics, counselor, and physical therapists who got
them back to doing what they were called to do.
Dr. Bruce Kahn has a reputation around County College of Morris for being
passionate about teaching. It was now his turn to be schooled. Bruce was
having a heart attack. He wanted to go to a hospital where his wife worked,
but Andrea and Aaron impressed upon him that he didn't have time and
should go to Saint Clare's Denville Hospital. Bruce agreed and paramedics
sped him here to a successful recovery. Now Bruce looks back at "the
most important decisions ever made for me" with gratitude for his
quick thinking paramedic team.
Brandon was the kind of local high school soccer star that gets a full
scholarship offer from a Division 1 college. Unfortunately, 7 months before
he was to report to preseason training, he dislocated his shoulder. To
Brandon, the scholarship seemed doomed. College soccer seemed impossible.
Jen would have none of that. After his surgery, she worked tirelessly
to get his body and mind back in playing shape. Brandon not only showed
up on time, but started all 4 years. Jen even went to his championship
game to continue cheering him on.
If you want to meet someone brave, you have to meet Margie. It’s
a big step to seek help for yourself. And that’s what Margie did
at Saint Clare’s Behavioral Health. With the guidance of Ann Marie
and her team, Margie developed the tools to manage her anxiety, PTSD,
bipolar disorder, and overcome the frightening prospect of taking on an
uncertain world. She now even works part-time helping young adults with
disabilities gain employment. Much success, Margie.
Ben is an institution at Saint Clare’s Dover Hospital. That’s
what happens when you care for thousands of neighbors over the years and
ask for nothing in return. So when Ben got colon cancer, it was time for
his neighbors, in the form of a top surgical team, to care for him. It’s
what Dr. Huang and the rest of us do here at Saint Clare’s Health;
to give back to a community that continually looks out for its own. After
all, we live and work here too.
