Hackensack Meridian to acquire JFK Medical Center

After much speculation regarding Edison, N.J.-based JFK Medical Center's decision to partner with another facility, hospital officials signed a letter of intent with Hackensack (N.J.) Meridian Health to discuss a potential affiliation.

Industry sources previously speculated that JFK Medical Center would partner with RWJBarnabas Health in West Orange, N.J.

"We share a culture and vision for the future of health care that reinforces JFK Health's role in the community," said Raymond Fredericks, president and CEO of JFK Medical Center. "Along with Hackensack Meridian Health, we will enhance our delivery of top-quality, coordinated patient care to our diverse community. We are proud of the more than 20 year relationship we have with Meridian successfully running Home Care and Satellite Rehabilitation facilities."

"We are very excited about this affiliation. JFK Health is an award-winning health system trusted by the residents of its community, and has established a network of providers and services, including its academic programs," said Robert Garrett, co-CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health.  "JFK and Hackensack Meridian Health share a common mission to provide the best care in a compassionate, patient-focused environment. We look forward to working with JFK Health on integrating its strengths with those of Hackensack Meridian Health."
