The Municipalities are encouraged to find new and creative ways to engage seniors, youth, employees and the broader community as a whole.
The RWJ Fitness & Wellness Center at Carteret was opened as collaboration between the RWJ Rahway Hospital, the Borough of Carteret and Fitness & Wellness Professionals of Princeton, New Jersey, in 2012. Fitness & Wellness Professional Services partners with hospitals all over the state to meet the needs of New Jersey communities.
