Bergen County is the most populous county in New Jersey with an estimated population of 938,506 according to Wikipedia. It’s also fairly large with 246,671 acres. With nearly 1 million residents and big size, it certainly makes sense that Bergen County has 7 major medical centers.
If you were to drive from one extreme end to the other in Bergen County, it would take you about 40 minutes. 6 major medical centers assures every Bergen County resident that they are no more than a 20 minutes away from medical help and often much less.
All of these hospital centers are highly rated, most are associated with major New York City teaching hospitals and several are themselves teaching hospitals for new physicians. If you are wondering how health care is in Bergen County, rest assured that world class health care is no more than a 20 minute drive away.
These are our 6 major medical centers and a 7th in North Bergen, Hackensack University Medical Center Palisades. I’m including this 7th medical center because it’s on the border of Bergen County and services the Bergen County towns along the Hudson River and adjoining areas. So while Bergen County does have 6 major medical centers there is also this 7th that services us as well.
