Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton 50th AnniversaryBring a community hospital to a suburban setting in Hamilton. Those were the thoughts of a few local leaders who dared to undertake the monumental task of making this vision a reality. They were dedicated to building a dream and strengthening a community.

In 1971, at the hospital's dedication ceremony, New Jersey's Commissioner of Health shared with the audience: "You now have a beautiful building, now you have to build a hospital." And so they did, knowing that a medical facility, no matter how modern, is only as good as the men and women who staff it.

For 50 years, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Hamilton has proudly served the community as a community hospital; now, it is a regional destination for cutting-edge medical care, providing the latest in cancer care, neurosciences, orthopedics and bariatrics, and so much more. Over the past half-century, RWJUH Hamilton and you, our neighbors, have been partners in creating a strong, vibrant and healthy community. Please join us in celebrating “50 Years, Together” and share your photos, memorabilia, and memories on video, audio or in writing, to create a community scrapbook of our five decades in Hamilton.
