About Us

A Strong History, An Even Stronger Future

The sign of a healthy community is a healthy hospital. And in Newark, Saint Michael’s Medical Center continues to be a vital part of this vibrant city. We have been providing high-quality, compassionate care to this community for nearly 150 years, and here is why our commitment is as strong as ever.

A Strong Committment of Quality Healthcare Choice

Our hospital tagline:Get Better With Us is more than just a campaign message—it’s the brand promise our team of highly skilled professionals live each day.

It’s a promise that at every touch-point, we are serving our patients with excellent care, compassion, and respect, as if they were a part of our family. It’s a promise that we will go above and beyond to make each Saint Michael’s experience a great one, because Saint Michael’s is your hospital, too.

We’ve improved our physical facilities – such as our state-of-the-art
Emergency Department designed with our patients in mind. It provides:

  • A beautiful and spacious waiting area for your comfort
  • Fast-track, acute, and critical care treatment bays to ensure appropriate care
  • Dedicated X-ray and CT scan systems for convenient and efficient diagnosis testing
