Fort Lee, NJ – May 18, 2015 – CareOne Executive Vice President Elizabeth Straus has been selected as a finalist for the NJBIZ Healthcare Heroes awards program, recognizing individuals and organizations that make a significant impact on the quality of heath care in New Jersey. “I could not be more proud of Elizabeth and could not be happier that her work and leadership are being recognized and honored in the healthcare community,” said CareOne CEO Daniel E. Straus.
The only female nominee in the Innovation Hero (Individual) category, Ms. Straus was nominated for her strong leadership and vision in successfully launching new clinical programs throughout CareOne – a company dedicated to enhancing the care of seniors in the state of New Jersey. These programs, focusing on Oncology, heart disease, COPD and more, have provided an elevated level of care and demonstrated improved outcomes for CareOne patients.
Ms. Straus not only cares about the patients, but she also works hard to support the caregivers – CareOne employees. In an effort to enhance employee spirit and develop an internal culture of philanthropy, Ms. Straus directed several large-scale fundraising campaigns and events, raising more than $3 million, to benefit both company employees and the communities they serve. “I am honored to be chosen as a finalist for this important award,” said Ms. Straus. “It’s my job to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care and are treated with compassion and love. It’s also my responsibility to provide our staff with the tools they need to be successful and make sure that they, too, are treated with the same level of kindness and respect they provide to our patients. I love coming to work every day, knowing that we are truly making a difference in the lives of others.”
Winners will be announced at a breakfast and awards ceremony on June 23rd at The Palace at Somerset Park. For more information about the event, please visit http://www.njbiz.com/section/Health-Care-Heroes.
