Jersey City Medical Center is a state-designated trauma center and stroke center, offering comprehensive cardiac and intensive care services – including open heart surgery, as well as a regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center for diagnosis and treatment of the most critically ill newborns. As a Regional EMS Provider for BLS and ALS (Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support), we're proud to be the First EMS service in the country to earn triple accreditation. We offer the best and brightest medical professionals a dynamic opportunity to leverage the latest technologies, a culture of learning, and a true family atmosphere to set a higher standard in the care we provide to this up-and-coming community — and in every career we build.
Our Mission
Here on our 15-acre campus overlooking New York Harbor and Liberty State Park, we’re proud to be the largest provider of health care services in Hudson County – with more than 18,000 admissions and 80,000+ ED visits annually. As a 316-bed, not-for-profit, acute care facility and Magnet hospital, we’re guided by our Four Pillars – Patient Safety, Clinical Quality, Satisfaction and Economic Health – and driven to enhance the lives of people across our community through advanced care that treats them with compassion and dignity. Our behavioral health programs and community-oriented services also reinforce this commitment.

We achieve this on multiple levels. As a teaching hospital with affiliated programs at Mount Sinai, we offer the comprehensive, advanced services necessary to treat a diversity of medical cases you simply won’t find anywhere else. Balancing state-of-the-art technology with a warm, empathetic approach, we place great emphasis on the idea of caring for patients as an entire person — going above and beyond the practice of exceptional medicine to realize our mission of “Enhancing Life.”

Our vision is to achieve the top ten percentile in our pillars of:
  • Patient Safety
  • Clinical Quality
  • Engagement
  • Economic Health
