Funding to improve health care for children currently enrolled on NJ FamilyCare in Monmouth and Ocean Counties

Hackensack Meridian Health Foundation is pleased to announce the receipt of a generous $250,000 grant from TD Bank in support of the New Jersey Integrated Care for Kids (NJ InCK) program, a transformative initiative to improve care for children and adolescents currently enrolled in NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) through prevention, early identification and care integration for families caring for children with complex behavioral and medical challenges in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

“We are so grateful to TD Bank for their continued support of our important initiatives, especially as it relates to Children’s Health,” said Joyce P. Hendricks, president and chief development officer, Hackensack Meridian Health Foundation. “TD Bank’s generosity in support of NJ InCK, a critical program, has the power to positively impact the health care of many children, young adults and their families living in southern New Jersey, allowing them easy access to prioritize their care and partner with health systems and community partners to ensure the health care needs they have are met.”

NJ InCK, recently launched by Hackensack Meridian Health, Visiting Nurse Association of Central New Jersey and the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute, focuses on the whole child and provides resources that support the physical, emotional and social needs of the child and family. For decades, Hackensack Meridian Health, Visiting Nurse Association of Central New Jersey and the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute have worked closely together to rally community stakeholders in an effort to ensure the delivery of comprehensive health care for all in the region. The implementation of NJ InCK has the power to reach up to 145,000 individuals ages 0 through 20 currently enrolled in NJ FamilyCare in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

NJ InCK provides comprehensive screening, called the HealthStory, in many languages to identify children and adolescents who have significant health issues. HealthStory, which may be accessed through a digital app or online, provides a detailed overview of their medical, behavioral and social risks. If the HealthStory indicates the need for additional support, children will receive care coordination and case management services from NJ InCK’s Advanced Case Management Teams (ACMT), led by social workers, community health workers, child life specialists and family support specialists.

"We are thrilled to support this delivery of services that will help provide even better care for children and adolescents in our community,” said Emmet Conlon, head of healthcare at TD Bank. “Efforts like these fully align with the TD Ready Commitment – this is our global initiative to help level the playing field for those who need it most. We fully stand behind the effort to break down barriers to help make healthcare accessible for all."

Funding from TD Bank will focus on the most essential component of the NJ InCK model - connecting families to the HealthStory to complete screenings and triaging screenings to their child’s pediatrician. Through a targeted focus on the HealthStory Activation, funding will also:

“Providing care to our youngest patients is important to us, and I am so pleased that TD Bank understands the paramount value in the establishment of the NJ InCK program and the incredible reach we can have with its support,” said Steven W. Kairys, M.D., professor of Pediatrics at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine and principal investigator of NJ InCK. “Compassionate, family-centered care is at the core of what we do at Hackensack Meridian Children’s Health and NJ InCK will allow us to better serve our patients with the most challenging behavioral and medical needs in Monmouth and Ocean counties with the health care they deserve.”

N.J. school district retaliated against teacher for his union activities, lawsuit says

A tenured teacher in the Hackensack Public School District has filed a lawsuit against the board of education and administrators, alleging he was retaliated against for his union activities.

Michael DeOrio, 49, a teacher at Fairmount Elementary School, says in court papers his work as president of the Hackensack Education Association, a teacher’s union, resulted in an unwanted transfer in 2018 from the in-school suspension teacher to an in-class support teacher.

“At the time of his unanticipated transfer, plaintiff DeOrio was negotiating a new contract on behalf of the HEA” with the acting superintendent, states the suit, filed Dec. 8 in Superior Court of Bergen County.

Through an attorney, DeOrio challenged the transfer as it had not been approved by the board of education.

“DeOrio was returned to his position as the in-school suspension teacher after voicing his concerns about what he believed to be an improper retaliatory transfer for his union activities,” the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit states that after his complaints, district officials gave DeOrio extra work, denied him medical accommodations to care for his seriously ill wife and was taken to court by two of his superiors who claimed he harassed them.

In the spring of 2019, DeOrio’s rift with administrators widened even more when an employee fell asleep while proctoring an exam, the suit states.

DeOrio was questioned by superiors about the incident and his cordial relationship with his direct supervisor “came to a sudden end,” the suit states.

On June 17, 2019, DeOrio filed a hostile work environment claim against two administrators, alleging they violated the district’s Healthy Place Workplace Environment Policy, the suit says, noting that the “policy further ensured that he would not be retaliated against for filing the complaint.”

In June 2020, DeOrio was told that his position as in-school suspension teacher was being abolished and he was being transferred to a different school.

DeOrio complained to administrators that the transfer was retaliatory in nature and he was able to remain at the school, the suit states.

The lawsuit alleges the district continued to discriminate against him and that two administrators filed lawsuits against him, alleging that he had harassed them by filing a hostile work environment complaint.

DeOrio alleges district officials were negligent, indifferent and reckless in allowing a hostile work environment to exist. The “retaliatory conduct” violated DeOrio’s rights under the New Jersey Constitution, the suit states.

District officials did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment on the lawsuit.

New developer steams ahead on 110-unit Hackensack project

When a developer backs out of an apartment project in Hackensack’s growing downtown, finding a new one isn’t too hard.

Legacy Development Group will go before the local planning board in the spring with an amended proposal for 359 Main Street in the New Jersey community, NorthJersey.com reported. If its plans are approved, the buildings at 359 Main Street and 375 Main Street will be razed to make way for Legacy’s project.

The development, at the corner of Main and Passaic streets, wasn’t always in Legacy’s hands. In June, the initial developer of the property canceled its contract, leaving a void in Hackensack’s redevelopment dreams. Legacy stepped in and purchased the parcel for an undisclosed sum.

Abigail Polizois, a partner at the firm, praised the transit-oriented community, noting it was more manageable than the likes of Jersey City and other larger cities, the publication reported.

The developer left the number of units at 110, but will go with a more traditional parking arrangement. The original plan called for a five-story building with parking at the center of each floor. Legacy would put all 156 parking spots on the ground floor, behind 4,000 square feet of retail.

Additionally, the 14 duplex townhouses planned for the site are now gone. Legacy will build apartments exclusively.

The site previously housed a bank building and an office building. Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union left the property in 2021.

Hackensack is in the midst of a development boom. A 268-unit project is being considered on Trinity Place, next to a firehouse and the Bergen County Islamic Center.

A six-story, 130-unit luxury project was pitched downtown, threatening to displace https://therealdeal.com/tristate/2022/02/17/in-hackensack-development-boom-resi-project-to-displace-local-stores/ several store owners. The former YMCA building was set to become a 14-story, 400-unit property before bankruptcy forced the developer to hold off on the project.

Overall, there are more than two dozen projects geared towards revitalizing downtown. To enhance Hackensack’s trendiness, some have taken to calling it “the Sack.”

They came to Pearl Street to find E Street.

Fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band gathered Tuesday, Jan. 10, outside the Vogel, part of the Count Basie Center of the Arts in Red Bank, to listen to rehearsals for the band's upcoming world tour, which begins Wednesday, Feb. 1, in Tampa.

“There is no other place I would rather be right now in Red Bank at the Vogel,” said Joyce Carswell of Asbury Park. “I don't feel the cold — I'm so excited and pumped. They're rehearsing for the world tour, what's more exciting than this?“

The sound outside was muffled and the vocals were not distinguishable, but the songs were identifiable.

Carswell went to the Vogel on Monday, Jan. 9, and returned on Tuesday.

“There was a very strong rumor from many different people and I'm in Asbury Park and I said I'm retired, I'll take a drive over,” Carswell said. “If they're not here, I'll go home and if they're here I'm staying.”

Band members came around midday and left late afternoon on both days. Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, the Boss' wife and a band member, waved to the small group of fans across Pearl Street from the Vogel stage entrance on Tuesday when they left in a sports car.

“I'm thrilled,” said Jason Golub, 21 of Freehold Township. “I've seen the E Street Band six times and I've seen (Springsteen) on Broadway. I've grown up listening to him. It was nursery rhymes in one car and E Street Radio in the other car.”

Jean Charte of Red Bank was getting her steps in — she's exercising ahead of her son's wedding — and detoured over to the center.

“I met all of them and it was fun,” Charte said. “It's just like the old days.”

Springsteen and the E Street Band have played the main stage at the Basie many times in various configurations since headlining the spot in 1974, when it was known as the Monmouth Arts Center.

The fans outside were hopeful that a surprise will come at the Light of Day WinterFest show Saturday, Jan. 14, at the Basie's Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre. The Boss has performed at 12 of the previous 21 live Light of Days, all unannounced.

The Light of Day raises funds and awareness about Parkinson's and related diseases.

“It does make one wonder!” Carswell said.

The Basie Center is located on 99 Monmouth St., less than a block away from the building that was formerly Big Man's West, the nightclub owned by Clarence Clemons, and a few blocks east from the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen community restaurant.

Former E Street Band member David Sancious, with Will Calhoun, played the Vogel stage on Jan. 6. A rep for the Basie had no comment on the rehearsals.

Area shows for the upcoming Springsteen and E Street Band tour include the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Thursday, March 16; Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on Saturday, April 1; the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday, April 3; two at the new USB Arena in Belmont Park, N.Y., on Sunday, April 9, and Tuesday, April 11; and the Prudential Center in Newark on Friday, April 14, to close the run.

The band then heads to Europe to play stadiums there. It's the E Street Band's first tour since "The River Tour," which ended in early 2017.
