Founded in 1866, the hospital has state-designated centers for stroke and AIDS care. The hospital’s eight state-of-the-art operating suites provide care for more than 8,000 general, urological, gynecological, vascular, pediatric, and neurosurgical patients. St. Barnabas also houses two endoscopy rooms, with case volume of 2,500 procedures a year. Pediatric cases range from routine, such as tubes and tonsils (ENT), to complex traumas. A high-risk obstetrical service is responsible for more than 1,150 live births each year, 60% of which involve epidurals. St. Barnabas Hospital recently completed a few major renovation and construction projects, adding a spacious hospital lobby, full-service ambulatory surgery center, operating suite, inpatient short-term hospice unit, and attractive gateways to the garden-like campus.
