“This momentous decision honors the efforts and values of the Bergen County community, as well as the heartfelt vision of our County Executive Jim Tedesco. The County’s support of our shared mission is a beacon of light at the end of an arduous and uncertain tunnel. With the ongoing efforts of the Stigma-Free initiative in Bergen County, the demand for effective behavioral healthcare continues to increase. This collaborative project will increase our capacity to meet the needs of our families, friends and neighbors by raising the bar for integration, compassion, and efficiency.
We have created Care Plus Bergen Inc., which will serve as the tenant-operator of the (to be re-named) hospital. Our partners in this, and sub-contractors, will be Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Integrity House, and Care Plus NJ Inc. These three premier organizations continue to raise the bar in their respective fields. Together, we are confident in our ability to set a new standard for providing comprehensive care, in times of crisis and beyond. We are grateful and indebted to all those who contributed to the formation of what will be a National model for healthcare.”
– Joseph Masciandaro, President / CEO of Care Plus NJ
