Saint Barnabas Medical CenterBY STEVE WILLIAMS

After an exclusive Care2 report  on the anti-gay treatment 20-year-old Paul Zilber says he and his partner faced at the hands of Saint Barnabas Behavioral Health Center staff, the facility has since contacted Mr Zilber to offer what appears to be an apology.

In an email seen by Care2 that was sent to Mr Zilber dated August 1 and credited to Joe Hicks, President and Chief Executive Officer at Saint Barnabas Behavioral Health Center, Hicks apologizes if the center did not meet its “high standard” of care, saying, “We take seriously the respect and treatment of any person who enters a Barnabas Health facility.”
