Since its inception, the Barnabas Health Foundation has played an integral role in working with its community to secure needed funding and sponsorship support to underwrite important System projects.
As New Jersey’s health care leader, the System depends on the generosity of individuals, private and corporate foundations, state and federal government support to assist us in providing the quality skilled and compassionate clinical care to the more than 2 million patients we serve each year.
The Barnabas Health Foundation seeks funding support from private and corporate foundations, state and federal Governments and individual donors for System programs which currently include: Patient Quality and Safety Initiatives, Disaster Preparedness, Behavioral Health, Kidney Transplant education and community awareness, the Multiple Sclerosis Program, Newborn Screening, Jewish Genetic Disease Programs, system wide clinical programs and services, community outreach and capital needs, to name just a few.
* : With the assistance of Amgen, patient oncology education materials, including a Cancer Fatigue video, a patient education booklet with individualized oncology medication information, were originated and produced by the System’s oncology nurses. Because of Amgen’s underwriting support for production costs, these materials are now available and given to each newly diagnosed cancer patient throughout Barnabas Health.
** The Cancer Fatigue video won a Bronze Telly award in the 2004 national competition.
* : With Wachovia’s generous funding support, a collaborative Clinical Nursing Residency Program for BSN Nursing Students was established in 2006 between Barnabas Health and Felician College, Lodi, NJ. This program was created as a transitional education and practice environment enabling student nurses in their last semester to become better prepared to enter today’s demanding clinical environment. Nursing students benefit from this supervised hands-on experience, as it is designed to enable them to function at a higher level when they begin their nursing practice.
