The African American Medical Program at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital was created to extend services to Black and Brown communities, within our region and address historical barriers to health. Our goal is to be equitable and culturally sensitive person-centered care to the communities in order for them to reach optimum health by eliminating disparities in care outcomes in the diverse communities we serve. We also would like to ensure that all patients get the care and services they need, with easy access to high quality inpatient and outpatient services, as well as free screenings, community education and low-cost preventive programs.

At Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital New Brunswick, our doctors are experienced in treating conditions that are prevalent in the black and brown communities, such as heart disease, and gastrointestinal disease, and we are committed to providing culturally competent care.
