Hospital reviews and testimonials from some of our heart care patients:

“At a big city hospital, you’re one of thousands of patients. You may never see the same doctor or nurse or technician again. You’re a number. But here, you see the same people. You become a family and, like a family, they really care about you. They do. The people here know you. They know if something’s not right.”
– Nick Delmonaco


Mr. Delmonaco suffered a heart attack while on vacation in Florida. Upon his return to New Jersey, he began cardiac rehabilitation at the Nicholas Quadrel Healthy Heart Center at RWJ Rahway.

“I can never show enough gratitude to everyone who saved my life. It was a miracle the way they brought me back.”
– Eugene De Almeida

Mr. De Almeida suffered cardiac arrest at home just days before Thanksgiving. RWJ Rahway paramedics arrived in minutes and revived him before bringing him to the hospital’s Emergency Department, where physicians induced  hypothermia, a heart treatment used to lessen cardiac stress while reducing the risk of brain damage.

“I still can’t believe what they did to save my life. I am truly grateful.”
– John Dziedzic

Six days after Superstorm Sandy, Mr. Dziedzic felt something was wrong and drove himself to RWJ Rahway. As he pulled up to the hospital, he suffered a heart attack and went into full cardiac arrest. The Emergency Department restored his pulse after 40 minutes. He was then rushed to the cath lab where he  underwent emergency angioplasty to open two blocked arteries.
