Community Connections


Matheny is committed to providing its patients with an exceptional quality of life. That means leaving the hospital for shopping trips, concerts and sporting events . . . inviting athletes and entertainers to visit here. . . and generally welcoming the community to join and support us in everything we do. We strive to provide many more rich, fun life experiences for our patients and invite you to partner with us to make this happen.

There are many ways you can help. Do you have access to tickets for sports or entertainment events that our patients would enjoy? Perhaps you would be willing to reach out to your favorite local restaurant and ask them to “treat” three or four of our patients to a dinner out. And, of course, direct financial support to help with funding for staffing and transportation costs of day or overnight trips is always welcome.

To learn more about our Community Connections program, please call Sean Bielefeldt at 908 234-0011, ext. 302.
