Somerset Medical Center Narrows Merger Options to Robert Wood Johnson, Atlantic Health

Somerset Medical Center in Somerville, N.J., has committed to merge with another New Jersey nonprofit health system — but first it has to pick one.

Somerset's board is currently negotiating with Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Hospital in New Brunswick and Morristown-based Atlantic Health System, with a decision expected by mid-July and a closing by the end of the year, according to a report by Courier News
