Mission, Vision and Values

The Largest Academic Health Care System in New Jersey – RWJBarnabas Health

RWJBarnabas Health is the largest and most comprehensive health care system in the state of New Jersey, bringing the best of academic medicine, research and teaching, and community partners together to create healthier communities. Through our long-standing relationship with Rutgers University and its two medical schools, we are able to access the latest in medical research and treatment technologies and offer new hope from our New Jersey facilities.

While all health care systems focus on providing the highest quality of clinical care to their patients, academic medical centers and teaching hospitals have an additional focus on providing medical education and leading the nation in ground-breaking clinical research. Within our system, students, physicians, and researchers work together to pioneer and implement new medical treatments while bringing new complex and critical services to the community.

As our partnership with Rutgers University continues to take shape, we will become the state’s largest academic health care system dedicated to offering high-quality patient care, leading-edge research, and world-class health and medical education that will transform and advance health care across the state. This strategic partnership includes a substantial investment in clinical research and medical student internships. This collaboration also aligns RWJBarnabas Health with Rutgers’ education, research, and clinical activities, including those at the Rutgers Cancer Institute and Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care. With programs like the Rutgers Cancer Institute, physicians and scientists work side by side to make sure the most sophisticated cancer treatments are delivered to our patients, both quickly and safely.

Health systems such as ours that are rooted in academic medicine also hold a great responsibility to educate and develop the next-generation of health care providers. RWJBarnabas Health is proud to work with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical Schools to train and educate more than 1,000 medical residents and interns throughout our hospitals each year.

As the largest academic health care provider in the state, we are able to tap into the latest resources to provide cutting edge care. When you choose RWJBarnabas Health, you will gain access to the latest in clinical trials and medical research through the largest academic health care system in New Jersey.
