Alaris Health at West Orange and Barnabas Health Heart Center at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC) announce a partnership to provide integrated medical care and rehabilitation services to patients who are recovering from a variety of conditions. Alaris Health at West Orange will provide patients with the same quality and continuity of care after they transition from NBIMC allowing them to continue their recovery process.  Founded on a tradition of health care excellence, Alaris’ Member Health Centers are leading providers of short-term post hospital rehabilitation, long term and specialty care, with Member Health Centers throughout the state of New Jersey.  

“We are enthusiastic about this partnership and will offer the same standard of excellence in medical care that patients receive at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center,” said Avery Eisenreich, Founder of Alaris Health of New Jersey. “We provide them with a seamless transition to our dedicated facility. Our interdisciplinary approach to care, combined with comprehensive rehabilitation, promotes quicker recovery and helps patients return home more rapidly.”  

Recovery after a major surgical event is different for every patient, and the new partnership ensures that patients receive individual medical care best suited to their needs. The services provided meet specific needs for patients recovering from heart conditions such as heart failure, stable angina, heart transplant, coronary bypass, device implant and heart valve surgery. Other patients who benefit from individual services are those with lung or kidney transplants.
