By providing quality treatments to medically complex patients, through its respiratory, medical complex, cardiothoracic surgery and complex wound care programs, we stand ready to be there for you during your road to recovery.
Specialty Hospital of Central Jersey celebrates National Hospital Week, from May 12-18, joins with hospitals across the nation to recognize their dedicated staff and the important role they play in treating patients and creating healthy communities.
According to the Chicago-based American Hospital Association, National Hospital Week, the nation’s largest health care event, is a celebration of the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make hospitals beacons of confidence and care. It dates back to 1921 when it was suggested by a magazine editor who hoped a community wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The celebration, launched in Chicago, has succeeded beyond expectations in promoting trust and goodwill among members of the public and eventually spread to facilities across the country.
