Deborah D. Visconi, New Bridge Medical Center President and CEO Honored as a 2017 TWIN Award Recipient

New Bridge Medical Center congratulates our president and chief executive officer, Deborah D. Visconi, for being selected as a 2017 TWIN Award Recipient.

The Tribute to Women of INfluence (TWIN) Award, is a prestigious celebration of empowerment established by YWCA Bergen County in 1975. The program was so meaningful and successful that YWCAs throughout the country and the world have adopted it and continue the tradition today. During YWCA Bergen County’s years of TWIN, we have honored a real “who’s who” of Bergen County women of achievement and influence. Much about our world and women’s place in it has changed since the inception of TWIN, but women still grapple with issues of equal pay, equal opportunities, work-life balance, children, and career. The heart of TWIN remains to honor women of achievement and celebrate organizations that create cultures in which women can thrive.

The TWIN Awards will be held on December  7, 2017, 8:00 am-10:00 am at Maggiano’s Little Italy, Hackensack, NJ.

TWIN tickets can be purchase at

Bedside Harpist Visits Long Term Care

The Foundation sponsors Bedside Harpist to provide music for the Medical Center’s long term care residents on a monthly basis.

Bedside Harpist was established in 2002 by Edie Elkan as Bedside Harp, and is now a featured service for Pennsylvania and New Jersey hospital and healthcare facilities. The harpists are very experienced and play for the Medical Center’s residents at their bedside or in the long term care dayrooms. The beautiful music has already proven to be serene and relaxing for our residents.  The wonderful harp music radiating throughout each unit seems to provide a healing power and soothing experience for residents and staff alike. 

The harpists have shared some of the insights to the positive effects of the music. One harpist noted a resident sitting in a wheelchair looking on with apparent curiosity. The harpist went near to play and he nodded when asked if he would enjoy some music. When the harpist played, he broke out into a big smile and enjoyed some familiar tunes. When the session ended, with a big smile and a soft whisper, he thanked the harpist.

Another resident was in bed and smiled when approached by the harpist. The harpist played several recognizable tunes for her, which brought a warm smile and thank you from her when the session ended.  As the harpist left her room, the resident began to sing some of the songs she had just heard.

The power music and its positive impact on the long term care residents is difficult to measure, but the experiences shared by the harpists from Bedside Harpist have been positive and rewarding. Thank you to The Foundation for sponsoring this uplifting new service.
