St. Joseph’s University Medical Center
Rich in history, St. Joseph's Health has evolved from humble beginnings. In 1867, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth opened St. Joseph's Hospital on Church Street in Paterson with only 12 beds. Now, St. Joseph’s University Medical Center is a 650-bed tertiary care academic center, providing state-of-the-art health care to Northern New Jersey. It is consistently rated as one of the top hospitals in the New York Metropolitan area by U.S. News and World Report. We recently completed a $250 million expansion and renovation project. The most extensive part of this master facilities plan is the new 183,000 square-foot Critical Care Building.
The Critical Care Building features 12 systems-integrated operating theatres with pre-operative and post-operative areas; separate Pediatric and Adult Emergency Departments (EDs) with a total of 88 treatment areas; 56 new private critical care rooms in four dedicated units (Cardiac Care/Open Heart Cardiac Care Unit, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Medical Intensive Care Unit, and Intensive Respiratory Care Unit); and a rooftop helistop capable of accepting large medical helicopters. In 2015, we opened our new ambulatory surgical facility which includes 5 operating rooms, an endoscopy center and pain management suite. More recently we dedicated a neurointerventional suite adjacent to the ORs.
St. Michael’s Medical Center
Established by the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor in 1867, Saint Michael's Medical Center is a 357-bed regional tertiary-care, teaching, and research center in the heart of Newark's business and educational district. Combining state-of-the-art technology, the latest diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, leading-edge research, and a network of highly qualified physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals, the hospital provides top-quality health care services delivered with compassionate care.
The first medical institution in New Jersey to perform open-heart surgery and the first to develop a cardiac catheterization program, Saint Michael's Medical Center is home to the Heart and Vascular Institute, which offers a comprehensive array of innovative cardiac treatments and procedures.
