MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – On Monday, August 27, over 300 players and 65 sponsors united for an exciting day of golf on the nearly 1,000 acres of spectacular countryside at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in Bedminster, NJ.

Special Needs Primary Care at Children’s Specialized Hospital provides children with special healthcare needs, and their siblings, comprehensive care. The practice strives to address the developmental and medical needs of children, in addition to behavioral health services. This is done through highly coordinated and effective family-centered medical care involving social workers, patient care coordinators, behavioral health therapists, doctors and nurses.
Guest speaker, Dr. Matt McDonald, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Children’s Specialized Hospital, expressed his gratitude to PSE&G for hosting the event, “The support of dedicated partners like PSE&G and DP&C is essential in advancing programs for the kids at Children’s Specialized. Having experienced first-hand the great work of the Special Needs Primary Care Program, I know how beneficial the funds raised by these gracious community members will be for our children.”
Deborah and Tom Acerno, parents to Children’s Specialized Hospital patient Adeline Acerno, also spoke at the event, “Today was a fun day for a great cause. Children’s Specialized has made a significant impact on our family and I am appreciative to have been able to share the impact that fundraising events like today’s golf outing have on the lives of children and their families like ours.”
