PSE&G and Trinitas Regional Medical Center Win Energy Efficiency Award The New Jersey Association of Energy Engineers (NJ AEE) has selected a $3.7 million energy efficiency effort implemented at Trinitas Regional Medical Center and financed by Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) as their Project of the Year. The award was presented at the NJ AEE annual awards gala held in Woodbridge, NJ. The award-winning energy efficiency work at Trinitas Regional Medical Center was completed through the PSE&G Hospital Efficiency Program. This overall $129 million effort helps hospitals in the utility’s service territory identify and finance major energy efficiency improvements that substantially lower their energy usage and greatly decrease their energy costs. Receiving this recognition from the NJ AEE is “the icing on the cake,” exclaimed Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trinitas Regional Medical Center. "The Hospital Efficiency Program has had a positive result on our operation, saving both energy and cost, and allowing us to direct more resources to patient care. It’s a thrill to receive this award for a project that is already a win-win for us,” he added. The energy efficiency upgrades were made at Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s Williamson Street and New Point campuses. They will save the hospital $390,000 annually in utility costs, or about $7.8 million over the 20 year lifespan of the new equipment. Improvements include updated heating and water cooling systems as well as the installation of state of the art lighting and energy management technologies. In addition to reducing energy bills, the upgrades will improve the comfort and convenience of Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s patients, staff and visitors. “We designed our program to help hospitals like Trinitas Regional Medical Center save money that they can better use to advance their healthcare mission and save lives,” said Joe Forline, vice president – customer solutions for PSE&G. “We’re honored that the New Jersey Association of Energy Engineers is recognizing our Hospital Efficiency Program and the work at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.

We look forward to helping even more hospitals in the months and years to come.” Through the Hospital Efficiency Program, PSE&G provides an investment-grade audit at no cost to the hospital, then proposes various cost effective energy conservation measures that will make substantial improvements in the hospital’s efficient use of energy with a payback period of less than 15 years. The program greatly reduces the financial burden on a hospital by providing up-front funding for the total cost of a project. The hospital then pays back a portion of the total project cost after the project is complete through its PSE&G bill at zero percent interest over 36 months. PSE&G’s Hospital Efficiency Program is unique. There are only four utility energy efficiency programs in the U.S. that target hospitals; among those programs, PSE&G’s is the only one in which the utility bears all of the upfront capital costs. About PSE&G Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is New Jersey’s oldest and largest regulated gas and electric delivery utility, serving nearly three-quarters of the state’s population. PSE&G is the winner of the Reliability One Award for superior electric system reliability. PSE&G is a subsidiary of Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated (PSEG) (NYSE:PEG), a diversified energy company (www.pseg.com). About Trinitas Regional Medical Center Trinitas Regional Medical Center (TRMC), a major center for comprehensive health services for those who live and work in Central New Jersey, is a Catholic teaching medical center sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth in partnership with Elizabethtown Healthcare Foundation. With 10 Centers of Excellence across the continuum of care, Trinitas offers 554 beds and has distinguished itself in cardiology, cancer care, behavioral health, renal care, nursing education, diabetes management, wound healing and sleep medicine.

Members The St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital Foundations are proud to announce the 2014 Charity Ball, a black tie event to be held on Saturday, November 15th at the Waldorf Astoria, New York City. Proceeds will benefit St. Joseph’s Healthcare System. William A. McDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer, St. Joseph’s Healthcare System, will be honored as the recipient of two prestigious awards, the St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center William F. Johnson Award for Community Service and the St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital Community Award. Mr. McDonald is a dynamic executive whose career is punctuated with successes that, in the past ten years, have greatly impacted St. Joseph’s Healthcare System, as well as the residents and communities of New Jersey. Mr. McDonald lives the Mission, Vision and Values he promotes at St. Joseph’s. His actions and achievements, personally and professionally, underscore his unwavering commitment as an active healthcare advocate, from promoting a collaborative culture of caring and driving top quality outcomes at St. Joseph’s, to influencing fair charity care reimbursement rates, statewide.

He was named to his current position in 2006. When Mr. McDonald came to St. Joseph’s, the healthcare system was experiencing financial distress, fragmented clinical service structure and lack of growth. After thorough evaluation, Mr. McDonald strategically established a variety of opportunities for growth and suc-

cess, including a clinical service line enterprise system, energetic mentoring and team building processes, the expansion of the medical academic structure, and the implementation of the largest master facilities investment project in the history of St. Joseph’s Healthcare System. A true visionary, Mr. McDonald has achieved extraordinary results at St. Joseph's Healthcare System and throughout his career. With tremendous expertise and foresight, Mr. McDonald has led the strategic development and implementation of sound policies and practices that have resulted in a balanced and reinvigorated St. Joseph’s Healthcare System. This organizational rebirth and economic recovery is punctuated by the Healthcare System’s tremendous strength and vitality. While repositioning St. Joseph’s for future success, heightened viability and sustainability, Mr. McDonald also led the rebirth and revitalization of the South Paterson community surrounding the regional medical center. Two distinguished physicianleaders will also be honored at the 2014 Charity Ball. John Ambrose, MD, FAAOS, will receive the 2014 St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital Distinguished Physician Award.

Atlantic Health System announces retirement of long-time President and CEO Joseph A. Trunfio, PhD

provided

Atlantic Health System, the Morristown, NJ-based health care organization, announced recently the retirement of long-time President and CEO Joseph A. Trunfio, PhD. Trunfio, who is 67 years old, has been an extraordinary leader at Atlantic Health System for the past 15 years, overseeing expansion that has grown the organization into one of the largest and most respected health care systems in the region. Trunfio will continue to lead the organization as the Board of Trustees undertakes a national search for his successor. During his tenure, Trunfio led the strategic expansion of the system – with the additions of Newton Medical Center and, most recently, Chilton Medical Center -- to meet the needs of the organization and the region during a time of tumultuous change in the local, statewide and national health care climate. He also steered Atlantic Health System’s breakthrough onto national measures of excellence, including: • U.S. News & World Report’s “Top Hospitals” list • FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for six straight years – this year at No. 25 • A spot in the top three for AARP’s list of “Best Employers for Workers Over 50.” This is the sixth consecutive time the organization has been recognized by AARP • ‘Inside Jersey’/Castle Connolly named Morristown Medical Center as No. 1 New Jersey hospital for four consecutive years (350 beds or more) and Newton Medical Center as No. 1 New Jersey hospital for three consecutive years (350 beds or fewer) • Championed the critical role of technology in patient care, introducing palm-recognition systems to confirm patient identity and other mobile innovations that have won Atlantic Health System recognition as a one of Health Care’s “Most Wired” organizations for five consecutive years

In 2013, Trunfio led the organization to develop AllSpire Health Partners, an alliance of seven health care systems that have come together to serve patients, families and communities in New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Through collaboration among the systems, AllSpire seeks to improve the quality, affordability and access to health care by sharing clinical, intellectual and economic capabilities. Trunfio also oversaw the 2011 creation of the Atlantic Accountable Care Organization, one of the largest in the nation, which serves to keep communities healthy and focuses on prevention and wellness. “Joe has been an outstanding strategic leader of the organization during a period of accelerated growth and expansion,” said Karen Kessler, chair of the Atlantic Health System Board of Trustees. “We are forever grateful for his dedication and exceptional service.” While Atlantic Health System has grown in size and scope – from 5,000 employees in three counties when Trunfio joined in 1999 to nearly 14,000 employees throughout northern New Jersey and along the Pennsylvania border in 2014 – Trunfio also has managed an engaged workforce by holding quarterly Town Hall meetings and remaining visible at all sites. His passion for quality patient care within a compassionate, healing environment has set an example of the organization’s mission and vision, “Empowering our communities to be the healthiest in the nation.” “It has been a career highlight to lead Atlantic Health System,” Trunfio said. “I leave knowing that the best days for Atlantic are ahead, and that the path we forged will continue to position us as the premier health care system in the region. The organization’s Board of Trustees, donors and nearly 14,000 employees and 4,000 physicians deserve so much credit.” About Atlantic Health System Atlantic Health System, headquartered in Morristown, New Jersey, is one of the largest non-profit health care systems in New Jersey. It includes Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, NJ; Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ; Newton Medical Center in Newton, NJ; Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains, NJ; and Goryeb Children’s Hospital in Morristown, NJ, as well as Atlantic Rehabilitation, and Atlantic Home Care and Hospice. It also includes its subsidiary, Atlantic Ambulance Corporation. Atlantic Health System comprises 1,599 licensed beds, nearly 13,400 employees and more than 3,700 physicians. Atlantic Health System is a clinical and

academic affiliate of The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; a

Major Clinical Affiliate of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey; part of Atlantic Accountable Care Or-

ganization, one of the largest ACOs in the nation, and is a member of AllSpire Health Partners.

Ask An Expert Physician Collaboration Drives Cost Savings By Christopher J. O'Connor Executive Vice President, GNYHA Ventures, Inc., President GNYHA Services, Inc. and President, Nexera, Inc. Like never before, hospital leadership must employ every possible method to reduce costs, including the implementation of a supply chain management plan that is defined by solid, strategic physician relationships. Hospital leadership needs to identify physician stakeholders and educate them about their vital interest in the healthcare supply spend. One way to initiate these relationships is to invite clinicians to join your hospital’s value analysis team, or better yet, to lead it. Many clinical purchasing decisions, after all, are made by habit rather than by evaluating the evidence. When physicians are incorporated into the value analysis team and empowered with comparative data on the cost and efficacy of clinical products, they are much more willing to initiate product changes. Once physicians embrace their role on the value analysis team, they learn how their changes actually improve the bottom line while preserving the quality of care. In turn, hospital leaders must ensure that the necessary tools are in place to measure the success of the value analysis program and then make certain those results are communicated to stakeholders. Such collaboration enables physicians to see the positive results that are directly attributable to leaving their clinical comfort zones. Of course, value analysis is just one area in which to forge strategic physician relationships. Hospital leaders should pursue other opportunities to engage physicians in strategic processes to produce positive changes for their institutions, especially those focused on the quality of care. Quality improvement initiatives foster collaboration across disciplines, providing a forum where different members of the care team work together to solve problems. This same method of communication can and should be used to build strategic relationships between the medical staff and supply chain leadership. Strong physician relationships require regular, meaningful, two-way communication between doctors and senior management. It is critical for hospital leaders to be good listeners who work with physicians to craft solutions based on clinical needs. When the C-suite controls the dialogue and sets rigid parameters for the decision-making process, it furthers the divide between management and clinicians, making it difficult to resolve problems or take advantage of great ideas. I have a colleague who likes to say, “You need to be able to call a physician by his or her first name.” What she’s really saying is that hospital leaders must build relationships with physicians based on a foundation of trust and respect. Those relationships can then be used to move the facility’s supply chain strategy forward with full clinical endorsement so that it meets physicians’ needs while achieving purchasing economy. The bottom line is that successful cost-reduction strategies must move healthcare professionals—both hospital leadership and clinicians—out of a silo culture toward a culture of collaboration. The C-suite should be candid about the challenges of delivering quality care in the current environment and invite physicians to be catalysts of change, helping to find solutions for a healthier future for patients and hospitals alike. Christopher J. O’Connor is Executive Vice President of GNYHA Ventures, Inc., the for-profit arm of the Greater New York Hospital Association, and President of two GNYHA Ventures companies: GNYHA Services, Inc., an acute care group purchasing organization, and Nexera, Inc., a healthcare consulting firm. Mr. O’Connor is also Chair of the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management (AHRMM).

Nurse’s Viewpoint

By Alison Lazzaro, RN

Hospital Newspaper Correspondent

Lifting the Stigma: Reforming Mental Health Mental illness affects 61.5 million Americans. One in 17 Americans lives with serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder. The American Medical Association describes mental illness as the nation's number one health problem. It currently sends more people to the hospital than cancer, lung, and heart disease combined. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among people ages 15-24. Every day, 22 veterans die from suicide. Sadly, suicide is the second leading cause of death in college students. Serious mental illness costs Americans $193.2 billion in lost earnings and productivity every year. Not addressing the lack of access to mental health care can lead to higher rates of high school dropouts, unemployment, incarceration, hospitalization, and homelessness. Since mental illness does not discriminate between gender, race, age, or socioeconomic status, support for mental health legislation should equally cross party lines. Two current bills are in Congress regarding mental health reform: “H.R. 3717, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act,” and H.R. 4575, “Strengthening Mental Health in our Communities Act of 2014.” Some highlights of the bills are federal resources for jail diversion, increased resources for suicide prevention, and grants for tele-psychiatry for treatment of mental health disorders. Additionally, the bills provide protections for access to psychiatric medicines through Medicare and Medicaid and financial incentives for substance abuse treatment programs. Opposition to this bill includes those who do not believe mental illness even exists or that it requires the same status of treatment as medical diseases. There are no easy biomarkers that can be tested for in the laboratory in order provide a positive diagnosis of depression. There is no easy recovery for every individual with mental illness. However, to say that there are no chemical imbalances in the brain and that these medications do not make life livable for the population is an outrage. People living with mental illnesses like depression face a negative stigma, hiding their illness to disguise what society thinks might be a personal weakness. What happens when people with depression do not have access to medication and treatment? These people cannot just “snap out of it.” Why is it acceptable to take medication and seek treatment for stomach pain, knee pain, and diabetes, but treatment for the brain is seen as illegitimate? Right now it is actually easier to obtain access to a gun than it is to get access to mental health treatment. There is little legislation for preventing illness from escalating to crisis. As nurses, I urge you to back these mental health reform bills because the consequences of non-treatment are devastating to avoid homelessness, incarceration, episodes of violence, suicide and fiscal losses of non-productivity. Nurses have the ability to enact political change and ensure positive steps to mental health reform. Be an advocate for your patients suffering from mental illness - speak up, disband the negative stigmas, and support policy changes to improve access to mental health treatment.

education & careers Saint Peter’s University Hospital receives Women’s Choice Award® for providing outstanding overall patient experience Recognized as one of America’s 100 best hospitals for patient experience Saint Peter’s University Hospital has received the 2014 Women’s Choice Award for being voted one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience by women. This distinction is the only award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction and what women say they want from a hospital including quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women. “We’ve identified America’s Best Hospitals across our nation to help women make smart healthcare choices for themselves and their family members. Being treated with the proper level of care impacts one’s health, well-being and healing, so it is critical for women to know those hospitals that have demonstrated the highest level of quality care to their patients, with a special focus on the female experience,” said Delia Passi, CEO and founder of WomenCertified®, home to the Women’s Choice Award, and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. “We’re putting the power of choice in the woman’s hands with the information to simplify her choice.” Hospitals named as America’s Best are then invited to join an elite network of brands, across multiple industries, which carry the Women’s Choice Award, symbolizing their commitment to women. “At Saint Peter’s University Hospital, we’ve always focused on exceptional patient care. To be recognized as a Top 100 Hospital for Patient Experience and a Women’s Choice Award recipient validates the work of our dedicated staff on behalf of women and all our patients,” said Ronald C. Rak, JD, president and CEO, Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, the hospital’s parent company. Being named and recognized as a hospital of choice among women represents the strongest and most important consumer message in today’s healthcare marketplace considering that women account for 90 percent of all healthcare decisions for themselves and their families (American

Academy of Family Physicians). When patients have a highly engaged, positive experience with their hospital, it’s a win-win situation. Hospital reputation is everything, according to a study by the National Research Corporation Market Insights Survey, the largest healthcare consumer survey in the United States.

“A woman expects more from a hospital experience and takes her role as the primary healthcare decision maker seriously,” Passi adds. “More than ever she is self-managing her care by choosing her hospital prior to choosing her doctors. This allows her more control over her hospital stay outcome based on

the quality of care she can expect from a Women’s Choice Award hospital.” “Recognizing the best hospitals nationwide that are womenfriendly and align with women’s identified preferences is important to our mission, where women help other women with tough, consumer

decisions,” Passi concludes. “Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award at her local hospital, she’ll know the hospital values her experience as a critical component of her and her loved one’s care.” Visit www.saintpetershcs.com for more information.

education & careers Twelve Outstanding Early-Career Nurse Faculty selected as 2014 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nurse Faculty Scholars The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) recently announced the 12 talented nursing faculty members from across the country who have been chosen to participate in its prestigious Nurse Faculty Scholars program this year. The RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholars program is strengthening the academic productivity and overall excellence of nursing schools by developing the next generation of leaders in academic nursing. This is the program’s seventh and final cohort. The Nurse Faculty Scholar award is given to junior nurse faculty who show strong promise as future leaders in academic nursing. Each scholar receives a three-year $350,000 award to pursue research, leadership training in all aspects of the faculty role, and mentoring from senior faculty at his or her institution. The scholars chosen this year are conducting a range of studies, examining issues ranging from pediatric asthma to dementia care to health literacy to HIV treatment to the use of technology to improve access and outcomes for rural and uninsured individuals. “Each of our 2014 RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholars has enormous potential and a deep commitment to educating nurses, improving health and health care, and building a Culture of Health in this country,” said Jacquelyn Campbell, PhD, RN, FAAN, national program director for the RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholars program. “We look forward to working with this new group as they conduct groundbreaking research, strengthen the academy, and advance the nation’s health.” The RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholars program strengthens the academic productivity and overall excellence of nursing schools by developing the next generation of leaders in academic nursing. Supporting junior nurse faculty will help curb a shortage of nurse educators that could undermine the health and health care of all Americans.

To receive the award, scholars must be registered nurses who have completed a research doctorate in nursing or a related discipline and who have held a tenure-eligible faculty position at an accredited nursing school for at least two years and no more than five years. The 2014 cohort of RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholars are: Katie Adamson, PhD, RN, University of Washington Tacoma. Melissa Batchelor-Aselage, PhD, RN-BC, FNP-BC, Duke University. Felesia Bowen, PhD, RN, Rutgers University. Abraham A. Brody, PhD, RN, New York University. Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, PhD, RN, Emory University. C. Ann Gakumo, PhD, RN, University of Alabama at Birmingham. Mary Dawn Koenig, PhD, RN, CNM, University of Illinois at Chicago. Sheila M. Gephart, PhD, RN, The University of Arizona. Ronald L. Hickman, Jr., PhD, RN, ACNP-BC, Case Western Reserve University. Karen E. Johnson, PhD, RN, The University of Texas at Austin. Emily J. Jones, PhD, RNC-OB, University of Massachusetts Boston.

Matheny Artists visit VNA of Somerset Hills Day Center members

Jess Evans and Yasin Reddick.

For several years, artwork created by artists in the Matheny Medical and Educational Center’s Arts Access Program has been hanging throughout the Adult Day Center of the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills in Basking Ridge NJ. “We are thrilled to have the Arts Access artwork here,” said Maria M. Keenan, VNA Adult Day Center manager. Our patients may not be able to put in words what the artwork means to them, but you can see the enthusiasm in their eyes.” On Wednesday, September 24, two Arts Access artists visited the VNA and spoke about their artwork and life at Matheny to a group of VNA members who come regularly

to the Day Center. Jess Evans pointed out that, in addition to painting, she dances, choreographs, writes drama, directs plays and acts. She told the Day Center patients, “I would like to dance for you one day.” Yasin Reddick said he writes stories, plays and is working on his autobiography. He paints and also creates computer-generated digital art. “I don’t let my disability stop me from doing anything,” he added. Evans interjected that, “Anyone can paint, even you guys.” Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility in Peapack, NJ, for children and adults with medically complex developmental dis-

Through the use of innovative systems and techniques, participants can take part in the visual, performing and literary arts. Regardless of their disability, the artists are provided with the tools and materials needed to produce complete pieces of work. The VNA of Somerset Hills has been providing compassionate, comprehensive and innovative home health and hospice care, adult day services and community wellness programs to individuals and families in Morris and Somerset County communities since 1904.

Learn What You Must Do To Protect Your Workers' Compensation And Disability Rights!

internet address directory Online Directory available at www.hospitalnewspaper.com

Do Not Make These Mistakes That Can Cost You Benefits

1. You must report the accident or injury as soon as possible, even if you might not lose time from work or need immediate medical care. 2. Report all injuries to all body parts, no matter how minor they may seem. If you do not report it and the injury gets worse over time, the job may deny benefits. 3. Remember, you are entitled to treatment and benefits even if you have previously injured the same body part in a prior accident. Do not let the job tell you different. 4. Your doctor controls the treatment, not risk management. If you need an MRI and the job will not approve it, the experienced attorneys at BAGOLIE FRIEDMAN can fight to get it approved at no cost to you. 5. When you are released from treatment, you may be entitled to money for your injury and disability. You may also collect for repetitive stress, cumulative trauma, cancer, hearing loss & hepatitis. 6. Contact Attorneys Ricky Bagolie or Alan Friedman now for a confidential and free consultation and to discuss your workers' compensation and disability rights.

Foot exams will also be offered from 10:00 a.m. – noon. Diabetic eye disease is a leading cause of blindness and vision loss, yet early detection makes prevention or treatment possible.

However, with regular check ups, one can prevent any serious problems. Specialists trained in detecting diabetic eye conditions and foot problems will conduct the examinations. Both insulin dependent and non-dependent individuals with diabetes who are not currently under the care of an eye specialist or a podiatrist and who do not have resources to get this service are urged to participate. The event will include a diabetes education fair which will showcase the latest diabetes products and supplies. All attendees receiving an eye exam will have their eyes dilated and are required to arrange for a ride home. The Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management is located at the Wescott Medical Arts Center, 9100 Wescott Drive, Ste. 102 in Flemington. Registration is required by November 7th.
