About Us

Founded in 1882, Jersey City Medical Center (JCMC) is located on a 15‐acre campus overlooking the New York Harbor and Liberty State Park.

Jersey City Medical Center

The hospital serves as a regional referral and teaching hospital providing the highest level of care for women and infants, and trauma and cardiac patients. Inside our remodeled state‐of‐the‐art facility, our renowned medical professionals use the latest technologies to provide unparalleled care with compassion. Our Imaging Center features advanced imaging technology, including the latest digital mammography, MRI, digital radiology, ultrasound, and dual energy Xray equipment. The Cristie Kerr Women’s Health Center and the Women’s Health Center at 116 Newark Avenue (at Grove Street) offer women convenient access to the highest level of medical care. Together, they represent a leap forward in Hudson County health services.

Jersey City Medical Center is the provider of Advanced Life Support for Hudson County. JCMC is a Regional Trauma Center, a Level III Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Center, and a Regional Heart Hospital with cardiac surgery.

Our hospital is the only 3rd Magnet‐Designated Hospital for Nursing Excellence in Hudson, Union, or Essex counties.

In 2015, Jersey City Medical Center invested in the health care needs of Jersey City with the renovation of the Greenville Hospital facility on Kennedy Boulevard as an outpatient medical center. Now, along with RWJBarnabas Health, Jersey City Medical Center remains steadfast in its commitment to provide for the needs of Greenville and all of Hudson County with a unique array of services intended to enhance care for families who need it most.

Jersey City Medical Center provides 24/7 emergency services at RWJBarnabas Health at Bayonne. This fully‐licensed emergency department has all the same capabilities as a traditional emergency room, staffed with board‐certified emergency room physicians, specially‐trained nurses, technicians and health care professionals.
