Enhancing Community Connections

Community ConnectionsSt. Joseph’s Health (SJH) 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.Community Connections 01

St. Joseph’s is continuously sponsoring, hosting and providing outreach programs at our medical facilities and in neighboring communities. Here, we name only a few events: Wayne Day, Health Partners Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, BergenFest, Paterson Press Community 5K, Paterson’s Dominican Day Parade, Over the Edge Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey fundraising event, Paterson Rotary Gift of Life program.Community Connections 03

St. Joseph’s Health’s continued community support is evident in the 2015 – 2016 Make a Difference Project. In December, SJH President and CEO Kevin Slavin invited the Management Team, comprised of Executive Leadership and Directors, to make a positive difference in someone’s life. The overall project was extremely successful in expanding community connections.
