East Orange General Hospital’s importance as a New Jersey community hospital and as an emerging premiere urban medical center has taken on increasing significance as neighboring communities have suffered the loss of their hospitals and more face financial difficulties in the region.

With the support of local legislators at the state and federal level along with the reconfiguration of the hospital’s Board of Trustees, Foundation and Auxiliary Boards, EOGH has been able to set a new course of progress and place the hospital on solid financial footing. The hospital has received full accreditation as a result of a survey by The Joint Commission, one of healthcare’s leading accrediting bodies. The accreditation is a national seal of approval that the Hospital meets high performance standards in quality, patient safety, treatment and services.

The hospital has evolved into a multifaceted community hospital with specialties in the following areas:

  • Behavioral Health — Child, Adolescent, Adult
  • Family Health- provides primary and specialty care
  • Hemodialysis/Nephrology
  • Hyperbaric/Wound Care
  • Medical/Surgical
