This strategic partnership aims to leverage the strengths of each facility to provide high-quality, accessible healthcare for the population of Hudson County.

Hudson Regional Hospital and CarePoint Health System have joined forces to establish Hudson Health System.

The collaborative venture brings together the expertise and resources of both entities to create a four-hospital network dedicated to enhancing healthcare services in the region.

The newly formed Hudson Health System will oversee the operations of four acute care hospitals, namely Hudson Regional Hospital, Bayonne Medical Center, Hoboken University Medical Center, and Christ Hospital in Jersey City.

This strategic partnership aims to leverage the strengths of each facility to provide high-quality, accessible healthcare for the diverse population of Hudson County.

On the collaboration, Yan Moshe, the then chairman of Hudson Regional Hospital and the newly appointed chairman of Hudson Health System, said, "Since entering this marketplace in 2018, our team has driven a patient-focused mission that incorporates technology and engages leading healthcare professionals to deliver care under a new model."

Emphasising the leadership of Hudson Health System, Moshe stated that it is a commitment to deliver top-quality care, engaging experienced physicians, and ensuring efficient operations.

Commenting on the same, Dr Nizar Kifaieh, CEO, Hudson Regional Hospital, said, "The possibilities are enormous and will energise the entire medical community to deliver that much more to the patients."

Hudson Health System has garnered support from prominent elected officials in Hudson County. Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop commended the collaborative effort, stating, "Hudson County is now a leader in community-focused care."

Also, State Senator Angela McKnight expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership, underscoring its importance in providing care to underserved communities.

The collaboration resolves conflicts dating back to June 2020 between Hudson Regional Hospital and CarePoint Health. The agreement brings an end to pending litigation and aligns both entities toward a common goal.
