A for-profit company that owns three hospitals in New Jersey unveiled a new identity as an integrated health system with plans to offer a Medicaid plan and sell insurance on the state exchange about to launch under the healthcare reform law.
In recent years, the Jersey City, N.J.-based company, doing business as Hudson Holdco, acquired 170-bed Bayonne (N.J.) Medical Center, 381-bed Christ Hospital in Jersey City and 204-bed Hoboken (N.J.) University Medical Center.
The system, rebranded CarePoint Health, will include hospitals, primary-care and preventive health centers, insurance plans and a network of about 1,000 physicians.
“By bringing together the resources of three great hospitals and the area's leading physicians, we can offer patients what we call '360 degrees of care' from the hospital to the doctor's office to the patient's home,” CarePoint Health spokesman Spencer Baretz said in a news release. “Using new models of delivery, including new technologies, we can ensure that patients are treated in a fully collaborative fashion with exceptional, personalized outcomes.”
