President, New Jersey Division of Jefferson Health and Executive Vice President of Hospital and Health Services at Jefferson Health

Here at Jefferson Health New Jersey, our primary focus is you, our patient. We know you have high expectations regarding the health services you choose for yourself and your family; and we take pride in our programs and services, our excellent Medical Staff and the more than 4,000 Jefferson Health New Jersey employees who provide your care.

Jefferson Health New Jersey has a network of services and locations that give residents of our communities easy access to the area's most advanced medical care and technology. We've been recognized by leading healthcare organizations, including The Joint Commission, which named us one of the nation's Top Performers on Key Quality Measures in four major clinical areas.

Jefferson Health New Jersey has grown from its origins as a single community hospital in 1965 to become a regionally recognized healthcare system with three acute care hospital and ambulatory campuses in Cherry Hill, Stratford and Washington Township. Jefferson Health New Jersey also offers medical care through the Kennedy Health Alliance, our physician office network, which has conveniently located offices throughout South Jersey.

Jefferson Health New Jersey is also the Principal Teaching Hospital of the Rowan University-School of Osteopathic Medicine. Through our academic relationship with RowanSOM (formerly UMDNJ-SOM), we have trained more than 2,000 physicians since this relationship began in 1977. We are also proud members of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network at Jefferson and the Jefferson Neurosciences Network, bringing world-class cancer and neurosurgical care to the residents of southern New Jersey, right here, close to home.

Jefferson Health New Jersey is focused on people: the people we serve and the people who work for us and serve our community every day, 24 hours a day.
