Hunterdon County

Hunterdon Medical Center is located on the outskirts of Flemington, New Jersey. The county is situated within the rolling farmlands of the Delaware River Valley, 60 miles from Philadelphia and New York City. The proximity of these major metropolitan areas has led to the presence of an exceedingly diverse population, ranging from the skilled workers of modern technology, to artists and farm workers. Hunterdon County is a truly beautiful area – rich in history, lakes, woodlands, recreational and cultural activities.

Best In The Nation! It is the quality of life which continues to draw people to Hunterdon and the surrounding areas of central New Jersey which, in recent surveys, ranked first in the nation as the safest place to raise a child, first in New Jersey for Quality of life, and sixth in the nation for Happiness. Corporate headquarters and white-collar industry have relocated to Hunterdon, and controlled development has provided for growth while preserving the beauty of Hunterdon’s rolling hills.

Enjoy Your Time Off! Outstanding recreational opportunities abound in Hunterdon. The numerous quiet and secluded roads make hiking and bicycling a new adventure in whichever direction one wishes to go. The Delaware River provides excellent canoeing and fishing and there is skiing in the nearby Pocono Mountains.

Theaters, museums, and entertainment of international quality are only 1-1/2 hours away in New York and Philadelphia.

Affordable Housing. The hospital provides subsidized housing in apartments located on “the hill” behind the hospital, and in the community if all the apartments are filled.

Also, housing in the community ranges from garden apartments to rentals of carriage houses and other small houses.
