Rochelle Park, NJ, February 24, 2016 Alaris Health at Rochelle Park is pleased to announce that Roy Santos, a long-time facility administrator with Alaris Health, has been inducted into the Fort Lee Rotary, district number 7490, for his prominent service-oriented business experience and charitable work.

Roy’s unique and charitable experience exemplifies the rotary’s motto of “Service above Self”. The rotary inducts new members who demonstrate a strong willingness to serve others and help the community through various charitable acts, such as feeding the homeless, supporting the Center for Food Action, providing scholarships to outstanding seniors from Fort Lee High School and other charitable acts. Roy’s membership was sponsored by Effie Michalos, a long-standing member of the rotary. Effie met Roy when her mother was a resident at Rochelle Park and witnessed first-hand Roy’s dedication and commitment to residents, staff and community. Roy is the first Alaris Health employee to be inducted into this rotary and the entire Alaris family could not be prouder!

Since joining the Fort Lee Rotary three weeks ago, Roy has become involved in sponsoring a young woman from the Philippines, Lyka Ocampo, who is awaiting heart surgery for her congenital heart disease. The surgery will be sponsored by the Fort Lee Rotary through their Gift of Life program, which grants patients life-saving surgeries free of charge. Roy has led the charge to help with her post-acute stay and has worked with the Alaris Health Foundation to help sponsor her rehabilitation stay at Alaris Health at Rochelle Park.

For Roy, being inducted into the rotary opens many doors. “The connection of the club to myself and my Alaris Center is to open community relationships — both public and personal — to businesses and individuals from the community to better our Center’s community involvement and public presence,” he said. “I’ve already met many important people, including the president of the Bergen County Chambers of Commerce.”

 

Roy joins approximately 35 other members of the Fort Lee Rotary, which partners with more than 1,300 rotarians in 52 clubs throughout Bergen, Passaic and Hudson counties. For more information about the Fort Lee Rotary, visit www.FortLeeRotary.com.

Stronger than the Storm: Alaris Health Recognizes Staff for their Dedication through Winter Storm Jonas 2016

 

Jersey City, NJ, February 18, 2016 – The treacherous conditions of Winter Storm Jonas proved to be a true testament to the continuous devotion of the staff at each Alaris Member Health Center. Hundreds of staff members braved the elements to arrive at their Center during this record-breaking storm between January 22 and 24.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Jonas was the fourth most powerful snowstorm to hit the Northeast in 66 years. The blizzard’s dangerous conditions affected more than 102 million people in 26 states. Nearly 30 million people saw 20 to 30 inches of snow and at least 50 people died as a result of the storm, which also caused widespread power outages, shut down major highways across the Northeast and led to coastal flooding that has inundated coastal communities.

At ground level, weather conditions were beyond dangerous, especially for those who were commuting on the roads. Some areas of New Jersey were hit with nearly three feet of snow but many Alaris Health staff members arrived or stayed overnight despite the difficult conditions. Those staff members were appreciated with an Alaris Health t-shirt as a commitment to recognizing excellence and rewarding employees who go above and beyond their calls of duty.

Excellent patient care would not be possible without staff members who put their patients’ needs above their own and Alaris Health commends and is grateful for their dedication and weathering Winter Storm Jonas 2016.
