Cleaning Up Fire Damages in Englewood Medical Centers
It is vital to clean and restore the top clinics and medical facilities of Bergen County after a fire.
Taking care of one another has always been one of the staples of our sense of community here in Englewood. Bergen County residents make up several smaller municipalities and towns, including Teaneck and New Milford. Caring for those who need it the most has helped inspire some of the most recognized and renowned medical facilities in the state, whether it is meant to provide urgent care, hope, or comforts. The protection of these facilities after disasters like fires is one of our capable SERVPRO team's responsibilities. We are leading fire restoration professionals and large loss recovery providers that can handle substantial structures and widespread loss effects.
Hospitals and Care Centers
The largest medical facility directly serving Englewood and its residents is the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. Because it is affiliated with the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University, the center has been a staple for the latest advancements in modern medicine applicable in a smaller-scale hospital setting. This connection also allows this Englewood facility to network with a talented roster of medical professionals and experts in their fields to consult on the best treatment options for individual cases. While the hospital began as a 12-bed clinic in 1890, since then, it has grown to have nearly 300 beds with a strong focus on emergency care and pediatric health.
Providing the top-tier level of care available for Bergen County residents begins with an expert staff and a community willing to do what is necessary to allow the facility to grow. Since its humble beginnings, the now thriving Englewood Hospital and Medical Center offer a wide range of life-saving and rehabilitation services ranging from heart and vascular care to integrative medicine and bloodless surgeries.
The ArtWorks Program
In 2002, ArtWorks, a Naomi Cohain Foundation, began its efforts to provide a better healthcare and treatment approach for youth and young adults. This non-profit organization's premise is that introducing those from birth to age 24 who have life-limiting conditions or chronic illnesses to performing arts gives them a conduit for self-expression, personal development, and most importantly, healing.
At the age of 14, the namesake Naomi Cohain was diagnosed with late-stage bone cancer. Because of her work with an art therapist, Naomi was able to take the time that she had left and pour it into the arts that brought a smile to her face in even the bleakest of times. It is the knowledge that the arts can change your perspective that has pushed ArtWorks ever forward, being a supportive and accommodating presence in the lives of so many in New Jersey that struggle with unpleasant prognoses.
Nursing and Rehabilitation Facilities
The care and well-being of the most vulnerable in our communities are the focus and heart of the work of many rehabilitation and nursing facilities throughout the county. Many of these organizations work in part or exclusively with the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, which gives each of them direct access to a network of some of New Jersey's most accomplished doctors and specialists. Because of the hundreds of individuals who rely on 24/7 support and attention, fires in these facilities must be addressed as quickly as possible by competent restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team. From air quality control to surface cleaning, a fast response reduces patients' need for mass relocation.
Public Education Institutions
The schools of Englewood, Teaneck, and all of Bergen County provide quality education to thousands of students every year. With just the Englewood Public School District, there are five public schools ranging from pre-K up to 12th grade. From recent demographics, the district provides a classroom for nearly 3100 students and employs almost 250 teachers, making the school district among Englewood's top employers.
Much like the area's medical facilities, fire restoration professionals' fast response like our SERVPRO team is critical after a disaster. Also like the care centers and rehabilitation facilities throughout Bergen County, these institutions are always working on getting students out on better footing for a stable future. It is a nurturing community of educators that care for the student body's well-being and the respect of those who make up the staff. An excellent example of this is the Cleveland School's renaming to McCloud School in honor and memory of Dr. Leroy McCloud. He had given 50 years to the service of Englewood Public School District and served as principal of Cleveland School.
What Steps Are Vital to Fire Restoration in Englewood?
Restoring your home or one of Englewood's medical facilities hinges on our SERVPRO team's fast response. Loss effects, primarily odors, particulates, and soot can travel quickly throughout the property through pathways like the HVAC system. Quickly reaching a damaged residence can allow debris removal actions to begin and reduce the concentration and severity of these specific effects.
Likewise, our general contracting division of our SERVPRO team can work on offering immediate repairs and containment. By eliminating holes made by the spreading fire or man-made holes created to improve firefighting actions, we can better protect the property from further damage. Our responding technicians can also fixate on water removal that is often a concern for these properties after extinguishment efforts complete. Once these immediate concerns have been addressed, we can focus on other fire damage restoration approaches in Englewood homes.
Soot removal is one of the most challenging obstacles that our professionals face when responding to fire losses throughout Bergen County. When our technicians first arrive during the emergency services phase, we can address these hazardous concerns with the placement and use of air scrubbers, hydroxyl generators, and other filtration equipment. Highly damaged construction elements and fixtures can get removed and replaced at this time.
These first actions are critical to a shorter and less costly fire restoration process. Our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood team can make fire losses "Like it never even happened." Give us a call today at (201) 266-0482.
