Save New Jersey Doctors is Being Led by the New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals
New Jersey Council of Teaching Hospitals (NJCTH) is the State's premier teaching hospital network. This non-profit consortium consists of Cooper University Hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center, Meridian Health, Saint Barnabas Health Care System, St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, Somerset Medical Center, and University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).
Together, NJCTH institutions represent more than 36,000 health care professionals and about 7,000 hospital beds; care for more than 414,000 inpatients and nearly 4.7M outpatient visits each year which account for over 1.9M patient days; total an aggregate budget in excess of $5.7B per year; and provide a significant amount of the state's charity care while constituting less than 20% of the state's hospitals. All two of New Jersey's Level I Trauma Centers are NJCTH hospitals, as are four of the State's seven Level II Trauma Centers.
NJCTH member institutions are dedicated not only to high-quality patient care, but to health professions education and sophisticated research as well. NJCTH hospitals train more than 1,500 resident physicians each year and work with a variety of medical schools.
