What We Do For You - Physician Relations

Working in partnership with our colleagues and faculty physicians at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s Physician Relations Department serves as a centralized point of contact between community providers and Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Health System. Please feel free to contact any of our liaisons for help with any of your Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital needs.

We are fully committed to developing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships between all referring physicians and the RWJ Health System. Our goal is to provide physicians and their respective office staff with the information they need to refer their patients to hospitals within our health system; answer their questions and address any concerns they may have regarding interactions with our RWJ Health System team; provide updates about new specialists we have on staff to help better serve your patient population; and organize engaging CME events to support our physician partners.

Our physician liaison team serves as a vital resource for any questions, comments, or concerns community physicians and their office staff have with regards to RWJ Health System. The team coordinates visits with our specialists directly in the referring physician’s office for anyone who would like to learn more about our capabilities and meet first hand with the provider who will be entrusted with your patient’s care.  If you would like to submit changes or additions to your physician profile, please click here.
