Mission and Vision



The mission of the Jersey City Medical Center EMS Department is "Enhancing Life…Through Nationally Recognized Pre-Hospital Care".



To be recognized nationally as a model EMS system based on Safety, Clinical Quality, Satisfaction, and Economic Health.


The organization bases its success on caring, public acceptance, respect for all individuals, and excellence in all our endeavors.

Trust is the foundation of our employee values. Building trust requires that I speak up honestly, follow through with promises and commitments, and be compliant to RWJBarnabas Health's policies and standards.

I recognize that I am RWJBarnabas Health and that quality and satisfaction begin with me. To this end, I will support RWJBarnabas Health enthusiastically; accept responsibility for my actions, attitudes, and mistakes; and know how my job impacts the success of the organization.

I will be a force for positive and timely communication. I strive to ensure that everyone I communicate with will be treated with dignity and respect. I commit to being a good listener, to try honestly to see things from the other person’s point of view, and being relentless about maintaining privacy and confidentiality.

I will do my best at all times and look for ways to do it even better. I will continually find ways to contribute to the success of my team, have the courage to innovate, and be passionate about improving clinical and service excellence. I will treat all team members equally and maintain personal and professional integrity as defined in the Jersey City Medical Center Code of Conduct and Business Ethics.

I recognize the value of working together as a team than alone, and that through teamwork a higher level of performance, clinical care, satisfaction, and overall outcomes will be achieved. I will respect and appreciate differences in people's styles, cultures, gifts, and skills and the value they bring to the team. I will also be willing to learn from others' points of view and support a culture of caring.
