Dear Patient,

On behalf of the more than 500 nurses working throughout Hunterdon Healthcare, we thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for you.  We take your health very seriously and want your visit to be comfortable and pleasant. All our nurses are proud to be part of a team that works each day to provide the best care and outcomes for our patients.  Our job is not only to help our patients heal physically but also spiritually and emotionally.

I am proud to tell you that you are receiving nursing care from a Magnet Nurse.  Hunterdon Medical Center has been designated a Magnet Hospital for outstanding nursing care. Only 8.9% of hospitals* in the country achieve Magnet status. In addition to being a Magnet hospital, Hunterdon Medical Center is NICHE certified (Nurses Improving Care for Health System Elders) and accredited by the Joint Commission.

If you need anything while a patient, please talk to your nurse.  He/She will be more than happy to help guide you through our healthcare system.

To your health,
Mary Jo Loughlin, BSN, MAS, RN NE-BC
Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Vice President of Patient Care Services
Hunterdon Healthcare
