Anthony Barone, RRT-NPS
Anthony has amassed more than 20 years as a registered respiratory therapist and neonatal pediatric specialist. He studied at – and graduated from – the allied health program at University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey (UMDNJ) and has built his entire career around working with medically fragile, technology-dependent children, adults and their families. Above else, he strives to assure a seamless transition for patients from acute care to rehabilitation and, ultimately, back home. Anthony provides teaching and support for Veterans Administration (VA) patients and families for complex medical equipment, in part, to foster understanding and increase compliance with necessary therapies and, in another part, to decrease repeated hospitalizations.
