TRENTON – With the recent release of a benchmark national survey that graded hospitals nationwide, Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg today said the results should spur closer scrutiny of the state’s poorly graded for-profit hospitals in advance of a second set of marks expected in September.
Of New Jersey’s 71 hospitals, only five are for-profit. Three of those institutions – Bayonne Medical Center, Libertyhealth-Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center and Mountainside Hospital – received a grade of “C,” the lowest possible score. The most recent conversion to for-profit status, Hoboken University Medical Center, was given a “score pending” mark, meaning it would have scored below a “C” and is being given time to raise performance.
