RWJBarnabas Health at Hoboken, located at 59 Newark Street, celebrated a major healthcare milestone this week as it officially opened its doors. The new and highly anticipated 23,000-square-foot multispecialty center, which houses a number of different care services — including OBGYN, cardiology, and endocrinology — celebrated with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Ravi Bhalla alongside Michael Prilutsky, Executive Vice President, RWJBarnabas Health and President, Northeast Region. This new state-of-the-art facility is redefining the standard of medical care in Hudson County and we got a sneak peek of the space last week. Read on for all that we know about this new location and what it is bringing to the City of Hoboken.
All About RWJBarnabas Health Hub in Hoboken
The RWJBarnabas Health at Hoboken facility will host an array of medical offices including 40 primary and specialty care services – family medicine, physical therapy, imaging services, orthopedics, cardiology, vascular medicine, urology, OBGYN, rheumatology, endocrinology, pulmonology, and laboratory testing in collaboration with providers like JAG Physical Therapy, New Jersey Imaging Network, and LabCorp.
“From the patient’s perspective, this new healthcare hub in Hoboken will bring healthcare closer to home,” said Michael Prilutsky, Executive Vice President, RWJBarnabas Health and President, Northeast Region and President and Chief Executive Officer for Jersey City Medical Center in a press release last week.
Located just steps away from The PATH, NJ Transit, and the Hoboken Ferry, this ambulatory hub is conveniently situated in an area where local families can access the variety of services provided.
Longtime Hoboken resident and chair of the JCMC Board of Trustees Carlos Lejnieks explained this new medical center will “represent a significant step forward in providing top-notch healthcare to our city, eliminating the need for long commutes to New York.”
The hope is to provide a more convenient location than NYC to meet the healthcare needs of our community while encouraging patient education, lifestyle modification, and prevention as important components to long-term health.
“With this comprehensive healthcare facility in Hoboken, we can enhance our mission,” said Lejnieks. “We look forward to collaborating with RWJBarnabas Health to further support our goals. This facility is not just about healthcare; it symbolizes hope and commitment to our community.”
RWJBarnabas Health System
The new multispecialty center in Hoboken will further RWJBanabas’s reach, making it the largest, most comprehensive academic healthcare system in New Jersey.
“We are excited to bring a seamless and comprehensive healthcare experience to Hoboken. With primary care, specialty care, and collaborative services all under one roof, our patients will receive personalized, high-quality care tailored to their unique needs,” Vanessa Trespalacios, M.D., Medical Director of Primary Care for the Northern Region at RWJBarnabas Health shared.
Additionally, RWJBarnabas Health is one of the state’s largest private employers with more than 38,000 employees and 9,000 physicians.
RWJBarnabas has 12 hospitals in New Jersey alone and the healthcare system is no stranger to receiving national awards for outstanding quality and safety. Bringing this ambulatory hub will not only serve more than 700,000 residents in Hudson County but will also provide a number of jobs for medical professionals.
“We are committed to the community’s well-being and aim to make healthcare more accessible through easily accessible locations and modern facilities,” said Prilutsky “We are dedicated to healing, enhancing, and investing in Hudson County, addressing the needs of our residents at the right time and for the right reasons.”
