NEWARK, NJ – For the Courtright family, the 200 Wishes carnival on Sunday, February 26 at the Prudential Center in Newark was about spreading the message of Make-A-Wish New Jersey and all it is able to accomplish for so many families across the state.
The Caldwell family certainly knows the value. Two of their four children – Matthew and Mitchell – have cystic fibrosis. For Matthew, age 12, that meant a wish was granted to surf in Hawaii. For little Mitchell, age 7, it meant he finally got to see his true hero, Pluto, during a trip to Disney World.
“It is really hard to put in words what Make-A-Wish New Jersey has meant for our family,” said Gregory Courtright, who attended the Sunday event with Mitchell, as well as his two daughters, Makenzie, 15, and Miranda, 9.
The Courtright family showed its appreciation recently, donating the family’s 1968 convertible Corvette to raise money for the charity. “If that doesn’t show how appreciative we are, nothing will,” Courtright said. “I learned how to drive stick on that car.”
Another way the Courtrights showed their support was to tell their story to the gaggle of media who attended Sunday’s event, generously presented by CareOne, a family-owned healthcare company. It was a record-setting day, with $1.3 million generated for Make-A-Wish New Jersey – enough to generate 200 wishes.

Daniel Straus’s conference room probably would lend itself to a metaphor — but to come up with it, a visitor would have to stop gawking at the view first.
The office is high above the George Washington Bridge, on the Fort Lee side. It offers a hypnotic view of traffic; on a good traffic day you watch as cars, trucks, and buses shoot from the bridge and hurl themselves at the spaghetti bowlful of lanes. On a bad day — a day, say, for traffic problems in Fort Lee — you’d get to see a panorama of fuming drivers from your Olympian perch.

As talk swirls about repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump must train his focus on the fundamental error of the ACA, which is the shift in patient care decision-making away from frontline physicians and toward hospitals and insurance companies. Health insurance for everyone is important; however if it comes at the expense of providing quality healthcare to everyone, it is at best a pyrrhic victory. Hospitals are the most expensive and many times inefficient venue for the delivery of care and have contributed to rising costs while also failing to improve the quality of patient care.

“We’re going to repeal it and replace it.”
We haven’t heard a politician repeat the same line about health care over and over since …“If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.”
If only health care in this country were so easy.
With the swearing in of Donald Trump as our nation’s 45th president last week, the issue of health care is now firmly on his desk.
Does he truly have the votes (or the mandate) to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the signature program of his predecessor, President Barack Obama?
Does he truly have a replacement? And, if so, is it any better?
Last month, in preparation for President Trump’s first 100 days in office, NJBIZ held a health care panel
at Forsgate Country Club with six experts in their fields. Following are their thoughts:
