About Us

Welcome to Saint Peter's Healthcare System

Saint Peter's Healthcare System was formed in 2007 and reflects the expansive scope of health and wellness services we offer to our community.

Our services are offered to all. We are a Catholic institution with a capital "C" and a small "c." We draw inspiration from our religious heritage. Our care for others is universal, extending to those of other faiths and in some cases, of no faith whatsoever. Without question, the fact that ours is a faith-based healthcare delivery system is of primary significance. At Saint Peter's Healthcare System, you will find leading-edge technology and an experienced staff. You will also find the trust and compassion that we have always been known for.

This is our legacy—our very sacred ministry.

Saint Peter's Healthcare System is comprised of the following healthcare organizations.

Saint Peter’s University Hospital

Saint Peter’s University Hospital is a non-profit, 478-bed acute care teaching hospital sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Metuchen. Saint Peter’s brings the latest medical practices and highly skilled professionals to the bedside. We employ more than 2,600 healthcare professionals and support personnel, and more than 900 doctors and dentists are on staff at our hospital. We treat more than 30,000 inpatients and more than 200,000 outpatients yearly.

The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital

Caring for children has always been very important for Saint Peter’s. As a state-designated children’s hospital, we offer many specialty services for children. We care for high-risk babies and seriously ill children in our Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatric Intensive Care units. Our Child Life Program helps to educate and prepare children for their stay at Saint Peter’s, while our Pediatric Emergency Department can handle any injury or illness a child may have. At The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s we care for 9,000 inpatients and over 45,000 outpatients each year in our facilities and the Dorothy B. Hersh Pediatric Emergency Department.

Saint Peter’s Health & Management Services Corporation

Saint Peter’s Health & Management Services Corporation focuses on the wide group of the system’s non-hospital related healthcare services.

CARES Surgicenter

Today, many surgical patients are looking for little disruption to their lives and would rather rest and recover in the comfort of their own homes. The CARES Surgicenter, located in the Center for Ambulatory Resources next to the hospital, helps over 10,000 children and adults requiring same‑day surgery do just that each year. Here we offer complete medical services in our state-of-the-art facility with seven operating rooms and two minor procedure rooms for colonoscopies and endoscopies; general, breast, ear, nose and throat (ENT), gynecologic, orthopedic, pediatric, ophthalmologic, cosmetic and reconstructive, podiatric and urological surgeries.

New Brunswick Cardiac Catheterization Lab

The cardiac catheterization lab, located in the Center for Ambulatory Resources next to the hospital, combines a healing setting with advanced procedures and technologies. Patients benefit from the latest in imaging technology and monitoring and clinical reporting computer software. Emergency angioplasty, a procedure that is highly effective in restoring blood flow to the heart and in helping to ensure survival in heart attack patients, is performed here. Inpatient and outpatient cardiology services, including cardiac catheterization, are also available in Saint Peter’s University Hospital.
