HEALTHCARE: FUELING NEW JERSEY’S ECONOMY

New Jersey’s researchers and healthcare providers are pioneering the future of medicine at our nationally ranked hospitals and health systems, world-class universities and research institutions. 

Home to more than 21,820 healthcare establishments, New Jersey also is leading the way in innovative healthcare delivery – from advances in maternal and child health services to the latest in surgical technology to cutting-edge cancer research and treatment.

New Jersey’s healthcare industry plays an important role in the health of our State’s economy. Contributing $37 billion to New Jersey’s economy annually, healthcare employment has increased every year since 1990. Today, nearly 476,900 people are employed in New Jersey’s healthcare industry.

A NETWORK OF WORLD-CLASS HOSPITALS AND HEALTH SYSTEMS

Among the State’s 113 hospitals and 71 acute care hospitals, 5 are nationally ranked and 15 meet national high performing standards, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-2020 Best Hospitals rankings. Topping the list is Morristown Medical Center, which was ranked the #1 hospital in New Jersey and nationally ranked in 2 adult specialties, including cardiology and orthopedics.

WHERE DISCOVERY FLOURISHES

A strong alignment of New Jersey’s hospitals, medical schools, academic institutions, and the private sector has helped make the State a hotbed for innovation. As a result, companies located here are on the forefront of bringing breakthrough treatments and products to market. In 2019, 50% of FDA novel drug approvals came from companies with a footprint in the State.
