Rutgers University Medical School in the running to manage Bergen Regional

Newark, N.J.-based Rutgers University Medical School is the latest institution to submit a proposal to manage Paramus, N.J.-based Bergen Regional Medical Center once the current hospital operator's contract expires in March 2017, according to The Record.

Rutgers submitted a joint proposal with Paramus, N.J.-based Care Plus New Jersey, an outpatient mental healthcare provider. Details of the proposal have not been disclosed.

Other bidders have demonstrated interest in managing the facility, including three individuals who currently serve as principals of Bergen Regional Medical Center LP, the current hospital operator.

Five New Jersey hospitals have also submitted management proposals, including: Hackensack University Medical Center, Teaneck-based Holy Name Medical Center, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, Ridgewood-based Valley Health System and Wyckoff-based Christian Health Care Center.

The Bergen County Hospital Authority, an 11-member panel created by Gov. Chris Christie in September, will be responsible for selecting the next hospital operator by the end of the year, according to the article.
