Raritan Bay Medical Center

Located in Perth Amboy, Raritan Bay Medical Center is a 395-bed licensed general medical and surgical acute-care hospital. Services also include maternity and maternal-fetal medicine, adult inpatient and outpatient behavioral health, critical care, cardiovascular and physical therapy, and rehabilitation. The hospital is also home to: the Center for Wound Healing, providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy; Center for Women, featuring 3-D mammography; the Center for Balance, providing vestibular therapy; Human Motion Institute; Neck and Back Center; Hand Center; and a diagnostic imaging center.

The medical center was among the initial 12 hospitals to participate in the Johns Hopkins national C-PORT clinical trial designed to determine the benefits of providing elective angioplasty in hospitals that do not perform open heart surgery. The medical center’s cardiac catheterization team continues to exceed the national average door-to-balloon time, which is the time it takes to get a patient from the emergency department to cardiac catheterization.

The Center for Bariatric Surgery, with a location at Perth Amboy, is one of the most successful weight loss surgery programs in New Jersey. It is a recognized Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. Highly experienced in successful weight loss strategies and surgery, the program offers a range of less-invasive laparoscopic procedures including gastric sleeve, gastric banding and gastric bypass.
