Branchburg, NJ (February 15, 2024) – Innovare Medical Media (Innovare) has partnered with close to 300 hospitals in over 30 states and provides hospitals with digital screens accompanied by cell phone charging stations. In 2019, Innovare was searching for a well-respected, resourceful, and customer service focused community bank to support its business operations and growth aspirations.

Peter Gray, ESSA Bank & Trust’s SEVP, Chief Operating Officer, assured Innovare that ESSA Bank & Trust would be able to deliver all these things and more. Over the years, ESSA has provided exceptional support and services to Innovare in several areas, including ongoing banking advice, cash management, lines of credit, and long/short-term loans. Additionally, during the COVID epidemic, a time of chaos and confusion, ESSA assisted Innovare in its application for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and became a source of stability for its business. Innovare is thrilled with the banking relationship provided by some exceptional individuals, including Steve Bowers, Regional President – Lehigh Valley Region; Terese Haas, Senior Small Business Relationship Manager; and Cara Butz, Cash Management Officer.

Recently, Innovare was eager to learn that ESSA chose to partner on the Innovare Community Showcase Programs to market their banking services at five hospitals in the greater Lehigh Valley. Bowers spoke enthusiastically about the partnership: “ESSA is thrilled to expand our relationship with Innovare Medical Media.  The tens of thousands of healthcare professionals, visitors, and patients are an ideal audience for us to showcase our growing suite of products and services. We are excited to be associated with the marketing program at these leading Lehigh Valley institutions.”
