St. Joseph’s Health and Hackensack Meridian Health announced the formation of a clinical and strategic partnership on September 25, 2019.
Under the new partnership, St. Joseph’s Health will remain an independent organization, governed by a separate board of directors, with continued sponsorship by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth.
This new partnership builds upon the existing collaboration between the two organizations. In 2017, Hackensack Meridian Health and St. Joseph’s Health formed the Visiting Health Services of New Jersey, a jointly owned home health services agency and hospice services agency that serves patients and families across Bergen, Passaic and parts of Morris County.
This partnership will also increase access to health care services throughout Bergen and Passaic counties, and provide the opportunity to expand state-of-the art oncology services, featuring a Comprehensive Cancer Center with multiple locations throughout Passaic County including in Paterson, Wayne and Totowa.
