June 27, 2016. In a lavish and celebratory Gala Event on June 2, Alameda Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare proudly introduced the eminent Dr. Harry V. McKenna as their newly appointed Medical Director.

A Physician Advisor in Utilization Management at Raritan Bay Hospital, Dr. McKenna brings to Alameda Center his sterling reputation as a doctor with peerless standards of clinical excellence – a great fit to Alameda’s Vision to chart new frontiers in patient care.

Amidst gifts, balloons, music, raffle prizes, the splendid food of the celebrated Portuguese Manor, and featuring Wilda Diaz, Mayor of the City of Perth Amboy as a keynote speaker, this delightful evening was a prime opportunity to personally meet Alameda’s Administrator Jay Berger, LNHA, Christiana Enworom Director of Nursing, and be inspired by the impressive team that leads each Department at the Center: the people who uphold the exemplary quality measures that have earned Alameda a CMS 4-Star rating.

These quality measures, Alameda’s nurturing, home-inspired environment, and its unsurpassed personal care came to life as Mayor Diaz captivated the attendants with a very personal account of her mother’s rehabilitation experience at Alameda, praising its successful fusion of clinical excellence with utmost compassion and respect for the individual, and concluding, quoting Alameda’s motto, “indeed it was, ‘Progressive Rehab. Impressive Experience’ ”.

“We want our patients to have a comforting sense of being home, regardless of how long their stay with us may be” indicated Dr. Romel Arjona, Subacute Medical Director at Alameda Center, also in attendance at the Gala Event. “Our beautiful, state-of-the-art building is, foremost, a nurturing setting where our kind and professional staff members are passionate about fulfilling the physical, medical, social, and cultural needs of each patient”.

A 250-bed subacute rehabilitation and nursing care center in the heart of Perth Amboy, New Jersey, Alameda Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare offers an impressive suite of specialized programs that include state-of-the-art Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Pulmonary Care, Cardiac Telemetry, Peritoneal Dialysis and unique Hispanic and Indian Cultural Programs.
