St. Joseph’s Healthcare System (SJHS) employees recognize that the various communities we serve are part of our extended family. We take pride in being good neighbors.
To meet the health needs of our community, St. Joseph’s has formed partnerships with community organizations such as schools, churches and government agencies to provide an extensive range of health care initiatives via community outreach programs. The hospital also provides various after-discharge services such as ambulatory care sites, clinic services, support groups and classes, case management services, hospices, homebound program and spiritual counseling.
St. Joseph’s is continuously sponsoring, hosting and providing outreach programs at our medical facilities and in neighboring communities. Here are some of the events from 2016: Wayne Day, Health Partners Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, Paterson’s Dominican Day Parade, Over the Edge Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey, Paterson Rotary Gift of Life.
St. Joseph’s Healthcare System’s continued community support is evident in the 2016-2017 Make a Difference project. In December 2016, SJHS President and CEO, Kevin Slavin, challenged the Health System Management Team, comprised of Executive Leadership and Directors, to go out into the community and make a positive difference in someone’s life. Small groups of executives were formed and they swiftly moved forward with a variety initiatives and efforts throughout Passaic County. In a few short weeks, the teams of executives had connected with someone in need and jumped in to Make a Difference in their life. In 2017, the Make a Difference project will expand to System-Wide endeavors (engaging employees) to make new community connections.
