St. Joseph’s In the News: ALTO Goes National

From Our Partners at St. Joseph’s Health

Dear Friends of St. Joseph’s Health,

The U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation for St. Joseph’s ALTO® program to go national! The Alternatives to Opioids in the Emergency Department Act, introduced by Representative Bill Pascrell, will establish a three-year pilot to test ways of managing pain in Emergency Departments across the country without using opioids.

“Prescribing fewer opioids in hospitals all across the country as we are doing here in New Jersey will have a profound impact on reducing addiction and overdose. I’m delighted the ALTO bill has passed and our legislators have stepped-up to bring real, tangible solutions to combat the opioid epidemic,” said Kevin Slavin, President & CEO, St. Joseph’s Health.
