Bill M Bill's Patient Story

Thanks to the fast-action of the accomplished medical team, Bill has made a complete recovery.

Over the years, Bill has seen the hospital evolve and he's proud of the fact that the city is home to nationally ranked health care.

From 1931 to 1979 more than 350,000 babies were born at The Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital at Jersey City Medical Center. Bill and his wife Catherine proudly count themselves and their three sons among them.

As a lifelong Jersey City resident, Bill has witnessed the city’s growth firsthand. From the 1940s when his parents were able to gather enough money to open The Key Hole restaurant on First Street, to the current bustling home of many large national corporations, Jersey City has a rich history.

Throughout decades of change, Jersey City Medical Center has remained a constant in the community.

Involved in local government, Bill and Catherine both know what having good health care available close to home means to our fast-growing, diverse community.

Last April, when Bill complained of chest pains, Catherine insisted he go straight to the Emergency Department at Jersey City Medical Center. Tests revealed three of his coronary arteries were so badly blocked that he needed immediate bypass surgery. During the operation, his surgeon discovered a hidden fourth artery, nicknamed the widow maker for its ability to cause a major heart attack, was also blocked.

Thanks to the fast-action of the accomplished medical team, Bill has made a complete recovery.

Jersey City Medical Center is a vital component of the city, here to serve the community – family, friends, and neighbors – and provide the highest quality medical care.
