Thirty years ago, a Yamaha Grand piano was donated to the hospital from the Paramus Women’s Club. Age and wear now require a major restructuring of the piano, its strings, its pads and its action. The quoted price for the complete rework, including transportation costs is $7,500. Donations will be acknowledged at the rededication of the piano scheduled for the Fall of 2014. Donations can be made via check to The Foundation at Bergen Regional Medical Center 230 East Ridgewood Avenue Paramus, NJ 07652. Donations can also be made online.

The Mission of the Foundation
The Foundation is committed to:
Enhancing the quality of life for those served by Bergen Regional Medical Center.
Supporting educational programs for professionals, consumers and caregivers.
Educating the community about health issues and services available at Bergen Regional Medical Center.
With a glance at a woman in her sixties who suffered neurological arrest, you can quickly feel her pain and suffering. A woman once so vibrant who cared for her family was left in the fetal position with feeding tubes and severe depression. She initially only responded to French, her native tongue. Her family was told that she might never come out of this state. After receiving therapy and attending classes regularly at the Bergen Regional Greenhouse and Horticultural Therapy Center, she not only regained her smile, she regained her mobility too. Staff and family members are still astonished by her progress.
Holidays can be hard for those long term care residents who do not have any family. Yet it only takes a warm nose and a wagging tail of one of BRMC's pet therapy dogs to bring the smile back to their faces.
The Greenhouse and the Pet Therapy Programs are some of the many projects supported by the Foundation.
Thanks to the support of people like you, this is one of only many similar stories. The Foundation has offered many patients and long term care residents an enhanced quality of life and happiness because of continued and generous donations.
