Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation Welcomes New Trustee

January 20, 2020

Hackensack Meridian Health Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of Jane Mueller to the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jane to the board of trustees,” says Joseph Stampe, president and chief development officer, Hackensack Meridian Health Meridian Health Foundation, to which the Raritan Bay Medical Center Foundation belongs. “As a prominent real estate agent in the East Brunswick area, she is really tied into the community and brings with her an in-depth knowledge of what they want and need. This is crucial as we work to expand and enhance health care services for the region, particularly on the Old Bridge campus, which is currently building a new Emergency Department.”

Mueller is a real estate agent with REMAX First Realty and has been named the number one broker associate in East Brunswick from 2015 to today. She has won the New Jersey Circle of Excellence Award every year, was inducted into the REMAX Hall of Fame and was voted the Best of the Best Real Estate Agent in Middlesex County.

“Giving back is just a part of who I am and what I believe,” says Mueller. “As a member of the community, I want to ensure that the best care is available in our own backyard. You never know when you will find yourself in need of medical attention, and you want your local hospital to be able to get you healthy and get you home. I’m excited for this opportunity and look forward to serving the Raritan Bay Medical Center community on the board of trustees.”

The addition of Mueller comes at a pivotal time in Raritan Bay Medical Center’s growth. She will work alongside fellow trustees, as well as Michael Eagan, M.D., chair of emergency medicine at Raritan Bay Medical Center, and Timothy O’Brien, who are co-chairs in the efforts to raise funds in support of the new Emergency Department.

The funds raised for this project all contribute toward a $150 million fundraising goal as part of Meridian Health Foundation’s Giving Heals campaign.
