New Healthcare System Formed to Serve Hudson County

Hudson Regional Hospital and CarePoint Health System have created Hudson Health System, a new management company that will incorporate the acute care facilities of Hudson Regional Hospital and CarePoint Health.

The principals of the new network signed a letter of intent on Thursday that is the precursor to a new organizational structure and operating plan which will require approval from the New Jersey State Department of Health. Hudson Health System will be a four-hospital network including Hudson Regional Hospital, Bayonne Medical Center, Hoboken University Medical Center, and Christ Hospital in Jersey City.

“Since entering this marketplace in 2018, our team has driven a patient-focused mission that incorporates technology and engages leading healthcare professionals to deliver care under a new model,” said Yan Moshe, chairman of Hudson Regional who will be chairman of Hudson Health System. “I am excited to bring our proven track record and experienced team in partnership with Dr. Moulick to build a high quality, stable health care system that the county deserves.”

The new system will include both nonprofit and for-profit hospitals in a new model, and it will continue to be in-network with all major insurance carriers.

“Hudson County is the most diverse and dynamic community in New Jersey, and its residents deserve nothing less than exceptional care, affordable access, the most advanced specialties and technology, and the highest caliber physicians to serve patients’ needs, especially the underserved communities that rely on our facilities,” said CarePoint President and CEO Dr. Achintya Moulick, who will be president and CEO of Hudson Health System. “Yan Moshe has shown the type of innovative leadership that will allow us to thrive in an ever-changing healthcare environment, and with adequate state support I believe we can build a hospital system that will deliver on its core mission.”

“This new system expands our mutual impact far beyond and far sooner than what we could ever have achieved separately,” says Dr. Nizar Kifaieh, CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. “The possibilities are enormous and will energize the entire medical community to deliver that much more to the patients.”

“This partnership will strengthen CarePoint’s financial position and benefit our entire hospital network, from Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center which will continue to operate as non-profit safety net hospitals to Bayonne Medical Center which will still provide exceptional service to the community,” said Dr. John Rimmer, CarePoint chief medical officer. “This is an exciting moment for health care in Hudson County that will mean improved care and better patient outcomes.”
