Had 2 very good experiences at RWJ Pediatric Center in New Brunswick. Lots of attentive nurses and doctors and the facilities were top-notch.

I love St. Joe's, both the Children's Hospital (unfortunate situation with my late daughter) and the adult division. The staff are warm and fuzzy and super-knowledgable. Although they have grown a lot over the years, they have never abandoned their mission for truly "caring" for people. Somehow it doesn't feel like "big business" there yet....and I hope it never does.

If it's not anything to major NJ has some decent hospitals. If it's anything serious, my advice is to go straight to NYC. NYU Medical Center is wonderful and so is Columbia Pres.

I was just admitted to Jersey City Medical Center and my nurse, he was awesome most attentive, caring, compassionate. His name started with M something but I had my laptop with me and he is on their website as a winner of an award so I was very happy. There were other nurses who spoke filipino only but that one nurse, I called him Mr. M made up for everything else - he was just an angel.

Don't know about any other part of the hospital but they are one of the best hospitals for having a baby. Having had 3 kids in 3 different NJ hospitals, they were definitely the best as far as being respectful and helping me have a nice normal birth.

As long as you have a wonderful nurse, you will have a great experience. Thank goodness for nurses!

Default I have never had to deal with such air heads.

My Mother was admitted in community medical center in toms river nj. After going to emergency room for chest pains, I stayed with her the the entire day they preformed test and stated that everthing was negative, she was fine up and chatting and in very good spirits before I left, they wanted to keep her for observation overnite, I returned the next morning at 9:00 am, they did a procedture without me being there, a heart catharization, she informed that she told them she had been vomiting and had a terrible headach before they took her down stairs, my mother is a senior but not elderly, shes in her early 70,s and very active and sharp. When I walked in the recovery room, my mother look like she was a 100. she was bloted and her skin color was grey, I have never been so scared in my life I was in shock, and it was no one knew anything like it always is in this place.

I think St. Barnabas is pretty good as well and Trinitas is OK (original hospital were I took my dad for heart pain/heart attack) preferred it when it was St. Elizabeth's.

Morristown Hospital I'm unfamiliar with but my friend's mom went there last year and they sent her home with a diagnosis of pnuemonia and she died 2 days later.
Happened to a friend of mine's Dad at Mo-town memorial as well but he also checked himself out

Meadowlands Hospital is the biggest dump I've ever had the displeasure of being treated at. I would've trusted a tipsy Hawkeye Pierce and a MASH unit over this place.
