For more than a century, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital has been at the forefront of health and medical education in Northern New Jersey. Today, as a 669-bed academic medical center, we’re proud to be one of the state’s largest teaching hospitals — and an innovation-driven leader in health care careers.
Our Mission
Since 1901, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center has defined comprehensive care in the greater Newark area — blending a strong and deep sense of connection to the communities we serve with a proud tradition of advanced services and sophisticated treatment.
Our Culture

As a working culture, we’re proud to reflect the character of Newark itself — a dynamic, diverse city built on hard work and a shared vision of a brighter future.

We’re proud that so many people from all over the world have chosen to build their careers here, and we celebrate their heritage with special events throughout the year — including Caribbean Heritage Day, Chinese New Year, Black History Month, Indian Heritage Day, St. Patrick’s Day and more. At the same time, we also celebrate their capabilities as professionals, and offer a wide range of continuing education programs designed to fuel their continued growth and train our next generation of leaders.

This fusion of community, education, innovation and growth shapes our working lives, and helps to define Newark Beth Israel Medical Center as a large hospital that still feels like a family. This is a place where we blend together as one — helping one another as we work toward the common goal of helping our patients experience the highest standards of specialized care. And as we look toward our future – with our continued progress toward Magnet status and the strength of RWJBarnabas Health supporting us every step of the way – we’re excited by the incredible potential of all that still lies ahead.
