Trinitas Regional Medical Center

The main campus of Trinitas Regional Medical Center, 225 Williamson Street, Elizabeth, NJ. To the right is the new Andrew H. Campbell Pavilion that houses the Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Lisa Henson, MD, Chairman of Radiation Oncology at Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center, readies a patient for a Rapid Arc radiotherapy treatment. Trinitas was the first in New Jersey to begin using Rapid Arc, which reduces the time of a radiation therapy treatment from 20 minutes to as little as 90 seconds.
Fine accommodations with convenient access to the Garden State Parkway make Homewood Suites by Hilton in Cranford the perfect choice for the Trinitas Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center whose expanded services there make it the first hotel-based location in New Jersey for monitored sleep studies.
In 2010 Trinitas Regional Medical Center celebrates its first decade of dedication to the Central New Jersey region. Trinitas was established in January 2000 upon the consolidation of St. Elizabeth Hospital and Elizabeth General Medical Center. Sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth in partnership with Elizabethtown Healthcare Foundation, Trinitas Regional Medical Center is a Catholic teaching hospital serving those who live and work in Union county and surrounding areas.

Operating on two major campuses, Trinitas has 541 beds, including a 120-bed long-term care center. Trinitas provides comprehensive medical/surgical services, emergency services, senior services, adult and child/adolescent psychiatric care, cardiac care, cancer services, renal services, maternal/child health services including a high-risk newborn nursery, diabetes management center, a wound healing center, and a sleep disorders center.

The Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center provides a full range of cancer treatment capabilities including radiation, medical oncology, chemotherapy and surgery, as well as high dose rate brachytherapy and prostate seed implants. The Center was the first in the state of New Jersey to offer Rapid Arc radiotherapy technology – a precise form of technology that is 80 percent faster than conventional radiation. Rapid Arc is an image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy treatment that takes about 90 seconds to deliver, markedly faster than other medical facilities where treatment time can take 20 minutes or longer.

Trinitas is a teaching hospital, and serves as a major clinical site for the Seton Hall University School of Graduate Medical Education Internal Medicine Residency Program. The accredited, three-year program is part of a rotation that includes St. Michael’s Medical Center in Newark. A leader in nursing education, the Trinitas School of Nursing enrolls over 1,900 students in its full and part time programs of study. The School of Nursing is part of a cooperative education program with Union County College, and is currently the second largest nursing school in the nation.

Other major recent advancements at Trinitas include the establishment of a da Vinci robotic surgery program and a primary stroke center. The Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center recently expanded into Homewood Suites by Hilton, in nearby Cranford. This expansion marks the first hotel-based sleep center in New Jersey.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s main service area consists of the City of Elizabeth and surrounding communities in Eastern and Central Union County – an area that includes approximately 300,000 residents. Services such as Behavioral Health and Wound Healing draw patients from a much wider region. With nearly 80 satellite locations Trinitas serves much of New Jersey.

In its 2008-09 Community Benefits Report, Trinitas reported on the contribution made to increase the health status of the community. This contribution took many forms, including preventative health screening programs, free classes and health seminars, support groups, literacy programs and much more. Through 1,200 separate events, Trinitas touched the lives of 53,700 people. In performance of these activities the members of the Trinitas Family gave 10,700 hours, mostly of their own time.

In 2009, Trinitas served over 18,500 inpatients, 72,000 emergency patients, 2,419 newborns and 447,000 outpatients. The Trinitas Family includes 2,665 employees, 450 physicians, and over 200 volunteers and Auxilians.
