Every story, every gift matters
Your story of care and/or your charitable gift of any amount means more to them than you can imagine. Below, see what our patients and/or their families have to say about the care provided to them at CentraState. All stories have been published with permission.
“Our family can’t thank the doctors and nurses at CentraState enough. More specifically Drs. Tushar Tripathi and Raymond Maltaalong with the Emergency Room staff! The care here was amazing. They saved my father’s life and showed care and compassion for my family from the minute we walked in the emergency room door. Many thanks.”
Jennifer H. and Family, Manalapan
“Physical therapy can be very difficult but I was fortunate to have Karinne Camens as my therapist. She was professional but very caring and supportive. She wanted to make sure that I was comfortable and that I understood how to do the exercises. Karinne was always thorough and always pleasant to work with. She helped me a lot and I appreciated all she did for me.”

“We benefited from one of CentraState’s free screenings and we are grateful for the guidance and assistance we received from Sharon Lorfing. Without her help we do not know how long it would have taken to get the necessary appointments with the physicians we needed to see. I am now undergoing follow-up care and could not be happier with the care I am receiving at all CentraState departments. Thank you Sharon, you are our angel!”
“I am writing to you because my mother–who passed away at the hospital–was closely connected to CSMC. As a result, her obituary encouraged loved ones to donate to the CentraState Foundation, in lieu of flowers.
In the two years that she was at The Manor, my mother was shown extraordinary kindness by several specific individuals: Gwen Somers in the business office, Helena Berardinelli in activities, Tina Guillen the nurse supervisor, Juliana Ivory, the CNA who attended to my mother so faithfully, Barbara Codrington at the reception desk, and former social worker Kim Corwin. Each of these women showed my mother genuine love and affection and provided her with unceasing tenderness, patience, and reassurance. They each represented CSMC in the highest possible manner: the perfect combination of advanced skills, compassion, and dedication. We will forever be in their debt, and hope that it will be possible for them to be acknowledged by CSMC for their contributions.
In addition to the loving treatment that my mother received from Gwen, Barbara, Helena, Tina, Juliana, and Kim, my mother had as good of an “end of life” experience as is possible. Ann Olsen, from Critical Care, was incredibly sensitive in guiding us through the process. Rev. Lisa Lancaster, for whom my mother had the greatest admiration, made my mother’s serenity and peace the highest priority. Lisa spent a great deal of time comforting my mother and us, through recollection of shared history and prayers for the life to come.
