Who We Are
Our Hackensack Meridian Health Journey
In October of 2014, we embarked on a journey to transform health care and be recognized as a leader of positive change. We knew that coming together would allow us to create a better world, one where the highest quality care is human-centered, accessible and affordable.
In July of 2016, we took the next step to make that vision a reality, officially becoming Hackensack Meridian Health.
Today, we stand as one of the largest, most comprehensive networks in New Jersey, combining academics and research with an extensive continuum of care. We are renowned for our world-class quality, respected for our expert physicians, and admired for our commitment to our communities.
Because of our coming together, the residents of New Jersey now have access to 16 hospitals and 450 patient care locations and physician offices.
It’s been an incredible journey and we’ve come a long way, but we’re not done, yet.
This transformation isn’t just about providing better care to our patients – it’s about creating a better place to work for you – our team members. Just like providing the highest quality care requires continuous improvement, maintaining a rewarding work environment will be an ongoing journey for years to come.
Thank you for being part of the journey.
Transform health care and be recognized as the leader of positive change.
Innovation is in our DNA, compelling us to create a world where: the highest quality care is human-centered, accessible and affordable; we deliver outcomes that matter most; and excellence is the standard.

For Women’s History Month, the Women in Leadership (WIL) Team Member Resource Group sponsored a series of videos with four female executives each exploring the significance of one of our Four C’s. Check out the series below, featuring: Dr. Bonita Stanton, president and academic enterprise and founding dean for the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University, examining the critical importance of Compassion; Karla Cusano, senior vice president, Ambulatory Services, and her thoughts on how to be Collaborative; Dianne Aroh, executive vice president, chief clinical and patient care officer at Hackensack University Medical Center, on the need to be Courageous; and Sandra Elliott, vice president, Life Sciences & Innovation, on finding time to be Creative.
We will. Because. I am.
Championing our Culture: Culture Circles
For a culture to be strong and vibrant it must be lived every day, by every team member! Like any living and breathing thing it must also be nurtured. At Hackensack Meridian Health we are fortunate to have more than 500 Culture Circle Members championing our culture across the network! They bring our share culture to life while honoring the traditions their team has held dear.
