Barnabas Health has formed relationships through its Community Partnership
Program to improve the health and well-being of New Jersey communities.
Take a look at some of our recent partnerships:
Jakes Branch County Park Play Trail
Community Medical Center, a RWJBarnabas Health facility, located in Toms
River, NJ, has partnered with Ocean County, the National Recreation and
Park Association and CBS EcoMedia to construct a new fitness-themed play
pocket trail at Jakes Branch County Park in Ocean County.
Barnabas Health is the Founding Sponsor of the 2014 Special Olympics and
the Presenting Sponsor of the Games’ Family Program, welcoming the
thousands of family members from throughout the U.S. expected to attend
Barnabas Health will provide families with hospitality centers, information,
and will play host to various special events.
As a Partner of the
2014 Special Olympics USA Games, Barnabas Health is also a Contributing Sponsor for Special Olympics'
first-ever Healthy Young Athletes program, designed to assist families
of future Special Olympics athletes (ages 2 - 7) to meet the challenges
they face in identifying their child's medical needs through free
educational programs, medical screenings and family consultations.
New Barnabas Health Outdoor Theatre at City Green Learning Farm
Executives and staff members from throughout Barnabas Health, New Jersey’s
largest hospital and health care system, dug in and got their hands dirty
planting, mulching, weeding, hauling, cleaning and painting in an energetic
employee volunteer day at City Green Schultheis Learning Farm. The volunteer
work was in advance of a ribbon cutting for the Learning Farm’s
new state-of-the-art Barnabas Health Outdoor Theatre.
The outdoor theatre was funded through Barnabas Health’s WellnessAd
advertising with CBS EcoMedia. Barnabas Health’s support also included
the purchase of new native plants for the City Green Learning Farm, a
new eco-center supporting education focusing on environmental awareness,
sustainable agriculture, and healthy food. The newly dedicated outdoor
theatre will become home to Theatre in the Garden productions, concerts,
educational programming for students, health workshops and seminars.
