CentraState receives Partner in MS Care Award from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

 FREEHOLD TOWNSHIPThe Linda E. Cardinale MS Center at CentraState Medical Center recently received a “Partner in MS Care” plaque from the National MS Society. Partners in MS Care is a National MS Society program that includes health care professionals in the areas of neurology, mental health and rehabilitation, as well as sites that provide comprehensive, coordinated care.

To join the program, individuals and centers must demonstrate MS knowledge and a professional focus on high-quality MS care.

The Linda E. Cardinale MS Center was developed jointly with CentraState Medical Center and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, New Jersey Metro Chapter with the support of Vito Cardinale of Cardinale Enterprises in honor of his wife, Linda. The comprehensive regional center provides diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and support for patients with MS and their families and also offers a MS Wellness Program, which was modeled after the highly regarded programs of USC and UCLA. The Center treats more than 700 patients per year.
