Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC), previously Newark Beth Israel Hospital, is a 665-bed quaternary care, teaching hospital located in Newark, New Jersey serving the healthcare needs for Newark and the Northern Jersey area.[1] It is one of the region's only academic university-level teaching centers. The hospital is owned by the RWJBarnabas Health System and is the third largest hospital in the system. NBIMC is affiliated with the New Jersey Medical School of Rutgers University and features over 100 residents.[2][3] It has an adult and pediatric emergency department, but serious trauma is usually handled by the nearby University Hospital. Attached to the medical center is the Children's Hospital of New Jersey, which treats infants and young people up to age 21.

History

The hospital was run under auspices of the Newark Jewish Community and its suburban successors from its inception in 1900-1901 until its purchase by Barnabas Health in 1996.[4][5]

In 2011, the Newark Beth Israel Medical Center was ranked among the top 50 hospitals in the United States for specialty care in cardiology and heart surgery. The following year, it remained highly ranked but was not in the top 50 hospitals nationwide.[6]

Newark Beth Israel Medical Center is home to one of the nation's ten largest heart transplant centers, according to Becker's Hospital Review.[7]

In 2020, the hospital was given an "A" by the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.[8]

Controversies

In 2019, federal regulators announced that Newark Beth Israel Medical Center put patients in "immediate jeopardy" before the hospital began to implement corrective measures, according to federal regulators.[9] The investigation was begun after reporters from ProPublica found that the hospital's transplant team was failing to learn from surgical errors. According to the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, regulators found a series of incidents in which the hospital recognized areas for improvement following botched surgeries, but didn't carry out its own recommendations, leading to mistakes on subsequent operations. Regulators also uncovered stories of hospital staff failing to obtain informed consent and to seek information from patients' and family members' "do not resuscitate" orders.[10][11] Weeks later, Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. issued a statement about the corrective actions taken by the hospital, saying, "Based on my communications with the hospital, I believe the situation is moving in the right direction at this time and I will continue to monitor it."[12]

In 2020, the hospital suspended a staff member for distributing unauthorized protective gear after the staff member used GoFundMe to raise money to buy gowns and masks for hospital staff to use in dealing with Coronavirus disease 2019 patients.[13]
