January 8, 2018. Perth Amboy, NJ. Step into Alameda Center For Rehabilitation & Healthcare in Perth Amboy during the holiday season, and you might run into a local group of Girl Scouts and their Troop Leaders caroling through the halls of this towering 250-bed subacute rehabilitation and nursing care facility, meet members of a local church delivering gifts, and witness a steady stream of family members who from near and far come to visit their loved ones.
Even more impressive, is that in the midst of this merriment, distinctive of the Holiday season, the care teams at Alameda Center remain ready to provide high quality of care, establishing once more Alameda’s 30-year reputation for clinical excellence.
“When you are a healthcare provider, you can’t take any day lightly – holiday or not,” says Jay Berger, LNHA, adding that at Alameda Center, the care continues throughout the holiday season. “Whether it is easing the transition from the hospital through our uncomplicated admissions process, summoning the specialists to tend to specific conditions, or providing uninterrupted rehab therapies, we operate with ‘all hands-on-deck’ 365 days of the year, and our care teams remain in place, providing the excellence in care we are renowned for.”
“We’re all quite aware it’s the holidays, and as a staff, we do have some lighter moments during those days, like our door decorating contest that brings out the creativity in all of us” indicates one of the highly qualified registered nurses at Alameda. “But we remain focused on our reason to be here: our Patients and Residents’ wellbeing”.
Beyond their capacity to remain focused, what’s remarkable about Alameda’s staff is how they harness the high spirits of the season to boost their patients’ rehab progress and propel their recovery.
Case in point, the generous offer from Alameda’s administration for family members to enjoy free transportation to and from the facility when visiting their loved ones.
Certainly, no one wants to be in the midst of recovering from orthopedic surgery or a cardiac event during the holiday season. But if there’s a patient in need, be assured that the team of physicians and rehab specialists at Alameda Center will be there – ready to provide the care needed and help both Patients & Residents step into the New Year at their highest level of functionality.
