Unfortunately, our father had to be in a rehab facility. He was doing very poorly and has a trach, a feeding tube and a ventilator. We did not think he would make it. In the hospital, he kept getting infection after infection. Since his transfer to Specialty Hospital of Central Jersey, located at 600 River Avenue, Lakewood, New Jersey he has received the utmost professional care including outstanding medical staff, nursing staff, respiratory therapists, social work staff, kind and caring support staff with Bikur Cholim services that support this unbelievable institution.
We do not believe that there is another facility like this. They have saved our father’s life, helped our mother who is not young deal effectively with all the issues and have been in constant touch with our family.
Mr. Wieder, the director and Dr. Leibowitz, the chief of staff, are amazing people with an incredible staff. Dr. Smitha is a very involved, caring physician and Miriam Rotberg is one of their social workers who is sensitive and very compassionate. Everyone is trying to help our family navigate this difficult situation.
We would highly recommend this facility for anyone who needs it.
