“Collaborating with Brandywine Senior Living to bring Valley Health System services to residents of this vibrant new Mahwah residence aligns with Valley’s mission to deliver the right care in the right setting in our community,” says Audrey Meyers, president and CEO of The Valley Hospital and Valley Health System. “Our collaboration supports seamless care between our facilities, which benefits both residents and their families at every stage of the healthcare continuum.”
This collaboration also brings together two healthcare executives who were classmates at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania –- Ms. Meyers and Brenda Bacon, Brandywine Senior Living’s president and CEO.
