Academic Excellence and Quality

Work In An Environment That Fosters Academic Excellence ….
Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset is an affiliate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and operates a three-year family practice residency program. As a teaching hospital, the medical center challenges its physicians to maintain academic excellence, providing forums for research, ongoing educational programs and opportunities to share their expertise and experience with medical students and residents. Through a peer review process, physicians discuss their cases and help each other develop new treatment approaches.  

….And Makes Quality the Cornerstone of Care
At Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, delivering quality care and services to every patient, every visitor, every time is the goal of each physician, nurse, medical professional, staff member and volunteer. A multidisciplinary committee continually reviews the quality of patient care and recommends improvements. A physician committee also oversees and enhances the quality of clinical care services at the medical center.

The medical center was one of the first in the state to address the quality criteria established by The Leapfrog Group, staffing our intensive care unit with a physician certified in critical care and implementing a computerized physician order entry system to reduce medical errors. We also equip nurses with wireless phones. In addition, the medical center has hosted several conferences on topics related to medical quality, bringing together health care leaders from throughout New Jersey.
