  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) January 20, 2011 - Hector R. Giancarlo, M.D., F.A.C.S., founder and president of The Allendale Community for Mature Living, was recently named the John Kearney Rodgers Physician of the Year by the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York City. The Englewood, N.J. resident was honored at the 2010 Thanks for Giving Ball, hosted by Emmy-award winning medical journalist Dr. Max Gomez.

    Throughout the course of his celebrated 50-year professional career, Dr. Giancarlo has been widely recognized for his achievements in the medical field as a prominent E.N.T. surgeon. He also served as the former Chairman of Otolaryngology at the New York Eye and Ear Hospital. In 1991, New York Eye and Ear established The Hector R. Giancarlo, MD Center for Communicative Disorders in his honor.

    "I am very proud of my decades-long affiliation with the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, which was the nation's first specialty hospital," said Dr. Giancarlo. "Today, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary is THE world-renowned provider of highly specialized, ground-breaking care in the fields of ophthalmology and otolaryngology. It is my honor to be a part of this legacy."

    Located in the heart of Manhattan's Union Square neighborhood, The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of all diseases and disorders of the eye, ear, nose and throat. The hospital also is highly regarded in the fields of medical and elective cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery. New York Eye and Ear is regularly ranked as one of the Best Hospitals in America by U.S. News & World Report and has achieved Magnet status for excellence in nursing care.

    In addition to his surgical accomplishments, Dr. Giancarlo is an acknowledged senior housing pioneer. He established one of the first senior campuses where older adults can age in place, transitioning from independent living to assisted living and long-term care. Today, The Allendale Community for Mature Living's senior residences, The Atrium, Carlton Court and The Allendale Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, serve as a model for similar campuses nationwide.

    Developed in stages beginning in 1967, The Allendale Community pioneered modern-day eldercare and has evolved during the past 43 years into a full-service senior housing community. The continuum of care bridges the gap between skilled nursing and subacute services as well as memory care and assisted senior living with supportive services. The Senior Social Club adult day program and Short-Term Stay Program, for emergency or planned respite situations, also are among the most modern offerings.

    "My goal was - and continues to be - to help older adults remain as active and self-sufficient as possible throughout the natural aging process," said Dr. Giancarlo, who remains active in the day-to-day management. "We do this by offering flexible healthcare services, hospitality services and enrichment programming in one convenient location."

    To complement its superior on-site services, The Allendale Community has forged strong partnerships with area hospitals, including Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, Hackensack University Medical Center and Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y.

    The Allendale Community for Mature Living is located at 85 Harreton Road, on 12 suburban acres in Allendale, N.J. The campus is easily accessible via Route 17 South with private driveway access.
