Outstanding patient care from an exceptional, multidisciplinary team

With surgical specialists and sub-specialists in all areas of Neurosurgery, a dedicated nursing team and world-class facilities combine to deliver outstanding care, making clear communication about complicated conditions a priority so that patients and their families are equipped to make wise decisions during critical times.

The size of our department enables individual surgeons to focus on their diverse specialties. St. Joseph’s University Medical Center works closely with Neurosurgeons from the best universities in New York and New Jersey to offer patients extraordinary technical expertise in fields as diverse as oncology, spine, vascular and pediatric neurosurgery.

We are committed to providing patients with the best, proven approaches for addressing their neurological conditions. Our treatment philosophy is essentially conservative: Surgery is not always the right solution and our cutting-edge treatments may be minimally invasive or noninvasive. We work with each patient to determine what is best for each individual case.

A true team effort

An advantage of our setting at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center is our focus on specialized expertise. Patients are directed to the most appropriate specialist rather than the first available surgeon promoting cross-discipline consultation.


SJUMC is one of 12 Hospitals Nationwide with Five-Time Magnet Honors

St. Joseph’s University Medical Center, which includes St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, has again achieved Magnet® designation as part of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program. ® Just 12 hospitals nationwide have achieved this honor for nursing excellence for the fifth consecutive time, spanning 20 years.

“Magnet recognition reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver world-class care to our patients and their families,” said Judy Padula, Vice President, Patient Care Services/Chief Nursing Officer, St. Joseph’s Health. “To earn Magnet recognition once was a great accomplishment and an incredible source of pride for our nurses. Our repeated designation underscores the foundation of excellence and values that drive our entire staff to strive harder each day to meet the health care needs of our community.”

The credentialing program recognizes excellence in nursing and is the highest honor an organization can receive for professional nursing practice.

“We’re a better organization today because of our longstanding history as a Magnet hospital,” said Kevin J. Slavin, President & CEO, St. Joseph’s Health. “Attaining and maintaining Magnet recognition inspires every member of our team to achieve excellence every day.”

More than 800 nurses work within St. Joseph’s University Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. Committed to nursing excellence and professional development, they present research on local, regional and national levels. Nursing at St. Joseph’s is at the forefront of innovation to design evidence-based solutions to meet our community’s health needs.

Magnet recognition has become the gold standard for nursing excellence. To achieve Magnet status, organizations must pass a rigorous and lengthy application and on-site process that demands widespread participation from leadership and staff. The Magnet Model is designed to provide a framework for nursing practice, research, and measurement of outcomes – all elements that are deemed essential to delivering superior patient care. 



Insurance Plan Listing

St. Joseph’s Health is dedicated to providing patients, consumers and caregivers with as much information as possible regarding potential health care costs. Accordingly, we have listed information on the insurers and products we participate in, as well as any exceptions.

This list may not be comprehensive. For example, specialty insurers – such as workers’ compensation and personal injury protection (“PIP”) – are not included because there are a number of different types of insurance products and we may not participate in all of them. If you do not see your plan listed on our website, we strongly recommend that you contact us or your health insurance plan to confirm whether your plan is in-network or out-of-network. It is also important that you contact your insurance company prior to receiving services or care at our facilities. Each plan is different and some provide different levels of coverage that could make a difference in your out-of-pocket costs. It is always best to contact your insurance company to obtain more information.

In addition, the physicians who provide care within St. Joseph’s Health facilities might not participate in the same insurance plans as St. Joseph’s Health. You should check with the physician who is arranging your healthcare services to see which insurance plans the physician participates in. You should also know that these healthcare professionals' costs are not included in the facility's charges. Professional services are separately billed by the provider.


Price Transparency

St Joseph’s Health is committed to pricing transparency to ensure our patients are fully aware of the cost of their medical care and their estimated financial obligation prior to receiving care. We can supply price estimates for most of the health care services we provide at our hospitals and outpatient locations.

For an estimate price of services, please call 973-754-2150 and select option 2. When calling, please have the patient’s name, address, and phone number available. You will also need to supply the procedure or service in question, current procedural terminology (CPT) codes (if available), and the insurance plan/policy number (if any) you will have at the time of services.

Hours: Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30 pm

Please note that price estimates are only “estimates” and may vary if additional services are provided or if complications arise. Prices may vary from patient to patient, depending on the services and patient’s insurance plan. 


Healthcare Reporting

As part of our commitment to excellence in quality and patient safety, both St. Joseph’s University Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Wayne Medical Center participate in the National Hospital Compare reporting and Leapfrog Hospital Survey. We evaluate our performance by our own rigorous standards and industry benchmarks.

Providing the consumer access to healthcare information is important. Below are a number of consumer oriented websites that provide public information on healthcare reporting.


Patient Portals

Patient Portals

One Patient, One Record.

As of July 31, 2018, we are transitioning our hospitals and outpatient offices to a new electronic medical records system called Cerner Millennium.
