Evolution represents the health system’s ongoing commitment to personalized care backed by caring professionals trained at the highest levels.
Hunterdon Healthcare has unveiled a refreshed look and name change as it prepares to launch a new five-year strategic plan. The new name, Hunterdon Health, acknowledges the system’s deep roots in the community and its continued commitment to serving the families who live and work in Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer and Warren counties.
According to President and CEO Patrick Gavin, Hunterdon Medical Center and its affiliates have spent the past year building a new and exciting five-year strategic plan and reinvigorating the system’s mission, vision and values. With input from physicians, nurses, employees, hospital leaders and members of the community, this strategy supports the evolution of care delivery to meet the growing health needs of the system’s communities.
“Hunterdon Healthcare is a strong, identifiable name within the communities we serve. However, the past few years have shifted how healthcare is accessed, provided and perceived. Research tells us that our community – our patients – think about health and wellness in a more personal way and want to play a more active role in their care. Renaming ourselves Hunterdon Health and updating our iconic heart symbolizes both our legacy of care and our continued commitment to delivering even better clinical and personal care experiences for our patients and our communities,” says Gavin.
Hunterdon Health – and its flagship hospital, Hunterdon Medical Center – offers a full range of preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic inpatient and outpatient primary and specialty care services. It has a growing network of more than 30 medical practices throughout Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer and Warren counties. The Hunterdon Medical Center Family Practice Residency Program is one of the most established family practice residency training programs in the country and continues to attract graduates from the finest medical schools worldwide.
“We have deep roots, proud culture of caring, and a single-minded focus on supporting families throughout their health journey,” adds Gavin. “This is an exciting time for Hunterdon as we turn our sights towards a bright new future to propel the health system forward.”
