New Bridge Medical Center

Connecting compassionate, quality care to our communities

 New Bridge Medical Center, a clinical affiliate of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, is a 1,070-bed hospital located at 230 East Ridgewood Avenue in Paramus, NJ. The Medical Center is both the largest hospital and licensed nursing home in New Jersey and the fourth-largest publicly-owned hospital in the nation. The hospital changed its name to New Bridge in October 2017 when the not-for-profit company, Care Plus Bergen, took over as the management entity.  Care Plus Bergen brings together the expertise of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Integrity House, and Care Plus NJ, Inc., to form a groundbreaking collaboration that will revitalize and strengthen the high-quality, patient-centered care provided to patients, long term care residents, and the community served by the facility.

 The Medical Center, including its Long-Term Care Division, is fully accredited by The Joint Commission. Less than 6% of long term care facilities nationwide pursue and receive Joint Commission accreditation.

 Families trust New Bridge Medical Center to provide comprehensive, high-quality long term care services for their loved ones.  As a full service, accredited medical center, New Bridge provides a scope of services far exceeding those offered in a standard nursing home environment. Highly-trained, skilled staff provide nursing care focused on individual resident needs 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, as well as access to onsite, specialized physicians. Comprehensive medical or mental health care is always only an elevator ride away.
