Neuro-Interventional Laboratory

St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, a Primary and Comprehensive Stroke Center, represents the most advanced neurological treatment in our geographic area. This certification is nationally recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The Center operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week to care for patients who may require treatment for a wide variety of neurological and neurosurgical disorders.

In keeping with our vision to be recognized as the leading health care provider of choice in Northern New Jersey and for excellence in healthcare, St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center opened its new Neuro-Interventional Suite.

The addition of this leading edge biplane angiography system gives our specially-trained Neuro-Interventionalists and thoroughly trained clinical staff the ability to treat an
array of endovascular issues, such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, emergency stroke, and carotid artery issues, while also having the ability to perform a variety of spinal procedures.

The Neuro-Interventional Laboratory Suite is a component of the Division of Cardiology, which has a proud record of providing exemplary advanced care to the community for more than 50 years.

Cardiology and Neurovascular services are often intertwined, in a way that some neurologic issues, such as stroke, can be related to cardiac issues from birth, or a rhythm that produces clots, ultimately resulting in a stroke. St. Joseph’s cardiologists and neuro-interventionalists are closely integrated for a whole spectrum of care, resulting in the best outcomes for our patients.

The Neuro-Interventional Laboratory Suite features an advanced Siemens Artis Q angiography system, which enables our clinician to review and stabilize images of tiny vessels and obstructions. Often, 3D applications are designed to image the smallest structures inside the head, crucial to identifying issues such as aneurysms.

The six-story building is fully accessible. Paterson is just 25 minutes from New York City and 45 minutes from New York Medical College.

“The Barclay Street Residence Hall will create another high quality, accessible residence option for NYMC and the Touro community—and further support the thriving medical education sector,” said Alan Kadish, M.D., president and CEO of Touro College.

“We are excited to announce the new residence which will provide a very convenient housing option, especially for students who choose to complete their on residencies at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center,” said chancellor and CEO of New York Medical College Edward C. Halperin, M.D., M.A..

“This Residence Hall is more than just a building—more than just construction,” said Jose Torres, Mayor of the City of Paterson. “It is an investment in the larger Paterson community and an outcome of the vision of economic development we had for south Main Street over a decade ago. We are very pleased to see this progress and to welcome New York Medical College to Paterson, New Jersey.”

St. Joseph's Announces Innovative ALTO Program

CCB Exterior 02St. Joseph’s Healthcare System has officially announced ALTOSM, Alternatives to Opiates Program, which opened the Legislative Summit hosted by St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

The first program of its kind in the United States, ALTOSM is led by Dr. Mark Rosenberg, Chairman of Emergency Medicine and Medical Director for Population Health at St. Joseph’s Healthcare System and spearheaded by Dr. Alexis LaPietra, Medical Director of Pain Management in the Emergency Department at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. The ingenuity of these thought-leaders to stem the use of opiates whenever possible in our Emergency Department, led National, State and Local Legislators and leaders in Behavioral Health, Law Enforcement and the healthcare industry to St. Joseph’s in praise of this program and our organization.

The ALTOSM Program was launched in the ED in early January 2016, with 300+ patients treated with alternative protocols since then, patients who did not receive opioids when they previously would have been treated with opioids. The ALTOSM Program uses targeted non-opioid medications, trigger point injections, nitrous oxide, and ultrasound guided nerve blocks to tailor its patients’ pain management needs and avoid opioids whenever possible, for example, in cases of kidney stones, acute low back pain, broken bones, acute headache and migraine pain. 

A model for other hospitals and healthcare providers nationwide, the Emergency Department at St. Joseph’s - the busiest ED in New Jersey with more 158,000 patient visits in 2015 - is an innovator in Emergency Medicine, having established such programs as the first Geriatric Emergency Department in the US, the first ED-based Palliative Care Program (Life Sustaining Management and Alternatives) in the US, and now, the ALTOSM program.

The Summit was attended by nearly 200 people, including Senator Cory Booker, Senator Bob Menendez, Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr., Senator Ray Lesniak, NJ State Department of Health Acting Commissioner Cathleen Bennett, President of the American Osteopathic Association Dr. John Becher, President of the NJ Hospital Association Betsy Ryan, and other Federal, State and Local leaders.

ALTO - Alternatives to Opiates Program

The Emergency Department (ED) at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center is the first in the Nation to develop and implement ALTOSM, the Alternatives to Opiates Program, a highly successful unique alternative approach to acute pain management without the use of opioids and the potential addictions associated with opioid use.
