Tamar Traube, RN Case Manager
Tamar has been employed at Specialty Hospital of Central Jersey, LTAC Hospital for 2 years now. Tamar has her MBA and was working at Jersey Shore Medical Center as their Cardiac Vascular administrator when she first heard about a position at our LTAC. Tamar took the leap of faith and joined the team, she had heard wonderful things about the team at Specialty Hospital and of Dr. Lebowitz and his team and she knew she would welcome and embrace the position.
When we asked Tamar what she likes most about working here at the LTAC, without hesitation, she said, “ every single day I have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the patients and their family” . Tamar shared a particular moving story with us about a young man in his upper 60s who came to the LTAC with a brain bleed, he had a tracheostomy and was unresponsive. His family had so much faith and were extremely positive that their father and loved one would come out of this and make it through. Even though his outlook was extremely dismal after several months of care, the patient was discharged to a sub-acute rehabilitation center and he is currently enjoying his family and friends.
