The Morristown-based hospital system – third-largest in the state – is in the midst of a major push into the ambulatory care system as it celebrates two of its hospitals, Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center, being named among the top 100 hospitals in the US by Healthgrades Operating Co.
Morristown was named among the top 50, while Overlook was in the top 100 for quality of service and clinical performance. Both were the only hospitals in the state gain the prestigious placements from Healthgrades, a Denver-based company that provides detailed information about hospitals and doctors nationwide.
In the past year, the system has opened six primary and specialty care satellite offices throughout the state, and plans to launch 10 more throughout 2018.
“We’re putting up 10 new satellite offices throughout the year from Totowa to Scotch Plains,” said Amy Perry, CEO of Atlantic Health’s hospital Division. “The focus is how we improve accessibility for our patients. We want to expand into our communities and make Atlantic Health more accessible for all of the 4.9 million customers that we serve.”
Atlantic will open both primary and specialty care satellite offices this year in Totawa, Randolph, Pompton Lakes, Hackettstown, Flemington, Mountain Lakes, Union, Branchburg, Raritan and Scotch Plains.
