Raritan Bay Medical Center, located in Old Bridge (and Perth Amboy) has been providing compassionate, leading-edge health care to central New Jersey residents for more than 30 years. As a New Jersey state designated primary stroke center, RBMC is ranked among the nation’s top 10 percent of hospitals in the care of stroke patients, a position it has held for the past five consecutive years. The hospital is also one of less than two percent of hospitals nationally to achieve re-designation as a Magnet hospital, which recognizes nursing excellence. RBMC has also been the recipient of a New Jersey Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield patient care quality award for the past three years. Ý
This 501-bed facility hosts a medical staff of more than 500 providing medical-surgical, maternity, pediatric, general and critical care, as well as adult behavioral health, emergency and interventional cardiac and same day surgery services. RBMC also boasts several specialty services, eliminating the need for residents to travel for expert care or diagnostic testing. Patients utilize services, programs and centers of excellence like the accredited Center for Sleep Medicine, the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation services, and the Center for Women.
As a leader in cardiovascular care, RBMC is one of only 12 New Jersey hospitals currently participating in a national Johns Hopkins University Medical Center demonstration project studying the benefits of providing elective angioplasty in hospitals without onsite cardiac surgery. RBMC is undergoing a major 93,208-square-foot hospital expansion, which will include new physician offices, a diagnostic imaging center; inpatient operating suites and an ambulatory surgery center. Ý
