Emergency Personnel BBQ
Alameda's 2nd BBQ Party

Honored to welcome
Wilda Diaz, Mayor of Perth Amboy, we were proud to host our community's finest!
Fun, Intergenerational
& Interactive - Everybody had a Great Time at Alameda Center's HALLOWEEN BASH!

SUPPORT is always a buzzword at Alameda Center, and during this month of October, it showed up in many forms - even reaching across the ocean in a concerted effort to assist the Puerto Rican Community. 

Dr. Gonzalez, Director of our Hispanic Program timely reached out to Mayor Jimenez in Puerto Rico, stating Alameda's support and readiness to assist Nursing Home bound patients while Puerto Rico rebuilds. 

In heartfelt appreciation of the many ways in which they support our community, we were proud to host our 2nd Annual BBQ Party for Police Officers, Firefighters & EMS personnel.

Going Pink every Friday in October to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our staff showed great team spirit - and readiness on behalf of this worthy cause. 

Finally, our NEW Admissions Team, all of them bilingual, is upholding our tradition of support to our Patients, Residents and their family members throughout the admissions process, helping them navigate the insurance coverage, easing their transition to Alameda's distinctive clinical excellence.

Alameda's Latest Success Story

I am a healthy man who just underwent successful knee surgery at JFK Medical Center. The doctors told me I would have to go through therapy to get my knee back in shape. It was brought to my attention that Alameda Center in Perth Amboy does an outstanding job catering to my culture and provides Indian food as well. Everything about this place is just good! Therapy. Food. People. I absolutely recommend Alameda to anyone. I enjoyed all the people here, from the other residents to the staff, everyone was so nice. A special thank you to the 3rd floor nurses who go above and beyond for their residents. 

Best wishes & many thanks
