Bacharach’s State-of-the-Art Technology Aids Recovery

Bacharach’s State-of-the-Art Technology Aids Recovery

Innovative equipment helps patients get better, faster

At Bacharach we pride ourselves on offering our patients state-of-the-art technology to facilitate the quickest and most comprehensive recovery possible.


We recently conducted an in-house training session on the innovative Bioness device. In the above photo, Clare McLaughlin, OTR/L and Kristen Grizaniuk, DPT practice using the Bioness upper extremity device.


Bioness devices help patients with foot drop, thigh weakness and hand paralysis resulting from neurological impairments regain mobility and independence through the use of a cuff worn on the forearm, leg or thigh. Using adaptive wireless technology, the device emits a gentle electric stimulation to activate the nerves and muscles, reminding them to move without the need for a brace. The device was designed to improve the lives of stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury patients. It allows more natural movement, increased speed and improved balance.  


By using the most advanced equipment available on the market today, our highly trained health care professionals are able to provide the most up-to-date treatment protocols offered anywhere in the country.

We will offer treatment for a variety of diagnoses, including orthopedics and neurological disorders,” says Lauren. “I'm especially enthusiastic about our day rehab program, which offers a great way to recuperate following joint replacement surgery – closer to home in Hammonton.”


A licensed physical therapist, Lauren earned her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Maryland and her master’s in physical therapy Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

Bacharach Raises Big Bucks through #GivingTuesday Campaign

Bacharach Raises Big Bucks through #GivingTuesday Campaign

We are thrilled to report that this year’s #GivingTuesday™

campaign raised more than $40,000. #GivingTuesday™ is a global day of giving designed to unite people to help those in need. This is an important fundraiser as all of the donations we received from our #GivingTuesday campaign will benefit the Bacharach Hospital Foundation – helping us to provide the best possible care to the community.


Sincere thanks go out to our generous #GivingTuesday™ matching donors: Akpharma, Glenn Insurance, Hersh Kozlov, Esq., and the Building Trades Council of Atlantic, Cape May and Vicinity, who matched every donation, dollar-for-dollar, during our #GivingTuesday campaign. And we would also like to recognize our dedicated Bacharach employees who contributed more than $18,000 to the campaign.


There were many exciting and fun events that took place throughout the campaign and the entire Bacharach team got involved. Starting in September, we posted #GivingTuesday™ on Facebook and Twitter, comparing our fundraising efforts over the past 90 years to our online

outreach. In order to highlight our matching donors, Bacharach employees dressed up and posed as twins on social media. And, our creative T-shirt festival (top photo) was featured in an article about #GivingTuesday™ in the Press of Atlantic City


Thank you to all those who participated in this special day of giving. We truly appreciate your ongoing support.

Bacharach Awarded CARF Accreditations

Bacharach Awarded CARF Accreditations

Only Rehabilitation Hospital in the Tri-State Area to Receive 11 Accreditations

The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), an independent, international accrediting body, recently awarded Bacharach with 11 CARF accreditations for our inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs.


Accredited programs include our inpatient brain injury specialty programs and spinal cord system of care for adults, children and adolescents and our stroke specialty program for adults. We also received accreditation for our outpatient brain injury specialty program for children and adolescents and our spinal cord system of care for adults, children and adolescents. This is the 40th consecutive year that Bacharach has been awarded the prestigious CARF accreditation.

This decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and demonstrates Bacharach’s substantial commitment to meeting the highest standards of care. In order to receive the three-year accreditation, we went through a rigorous peer-review process. During an on-site visit, Bacharach demonstrated to a team of surveyors that we offer programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.


Congratulations to our dedicated staff for helping us to achieve this important recognition and thank you for all that you do.
