Hospitals in Newark

“It’s like fo’, five hospitals in Newark.”

 

Bernadette was right when she said this. There aren’t that many hospitals in Newark and because of that patients sometimes have to be sent to other cities for treatment. Hospitals in Newark include:

  • University Hospital (150 Bergen Street)
  • Saint Michael’s Medical Center (306 Martin Luther King Jr.)
  • Columbus Hospital LTACH (495 North 13th Street)
  • University Behavioral Healthcare (183 South Orange Avenue)
  • Beth Israel Medical Center (201 Lyons Avenue at Osborne Terrace)

 

Fun Fact:

The Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) in Livingston, New Jersey ( and New Jersey’s first hospital) used to be on High Street in Newark back in 1869. But, in 1955 a vote was held by the board of trustees that moved the hospital to Old Short Hills Road in Livingston “without delay.”
