CarePoint launches ‘Just Health Foundation’ to further philanthropic mission


CarePoint Health recently announced the launch of the Just Health Foundation. A newly established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the foundation will serve as the philanthropic arm of Hudson County-based CarePoint, supporting its commitment to delivering compassionate and patient-centered health care while driving innovation in the communities it serves.

“At CarePoint, we are dedicated to improving the health of our communities through compassionate care and innovative solutions to addressing health care challenges and enhancing overall well-being. By collaborating with local organizations, health care professionals and utilizing cutting-edge technologies, we aim to revolutionize the health care landscape. Our vision is a future where accessible, high-quality care is available to all, regardless of background or circumstance,” CarePoint CEO and President Dr. Achintya Moulick said. “The launch of the Just Health Foundation is a significant step forward as we expand our efforts to provide care, particularly for the underserved and often-overlooked populations in Hudson County. The foundation’s mission aligns perfectly with our vision of promoting inclusivity, social responsibility and equitable access to high quality care, and I am looking forward to what we are going to be able to accomplish through the efforts of the Just Health Foundation.”

The Just Health Foundation’s primary objective is to bolster the critical work of these hospitals and will seek to raise funds in order to enhance key areas such as the Comprehensive Neuroscience Center, Center for Personalized Health, Cancer Programs and the Neighborhood Health Center.

One of the foundation’s initial initiatives will be commemorating Christ Hospital’s Sesquicentennial with an Anniversary Celebration & Fundraising Gala, scheduled for Nov. 2 in Jersey City.

The event, organized by Marie Duffy, chief hospital executive, Christ Hospital, and executive vice president, system clinical integration & standards, and Justin Drew, vice president, marketing, strategy & patient experience, will mark 150 years of Christ Hospital’s unwavering commitment to compassion and care in the community. Attendees and sponsors will have the unique opportunity to contribute to these various critical health care initiatives, driving innovation and transforming lives.

CarePoint Health is made up of three prominent acute care community hospitals: Hoboken University Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Bayonne Medical Center. These institutions have become essential pillars of the Hudson County infrastructure, offering a comprehensive range of services to meet the diverse health care needs of the community. Throughout the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the three hospitals under CarePoint’s umbrella have exhibited remarkable resilience, treating and saving countless lives.
