St. Francis in Trenton Explores Relationship With Robert Wood Johnson

St. Francis Medical Center, Trenton, N.J., is moving forward with the development of a relationship with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton, N.J. Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital is located four miles from St. Francis in a growing suburban location. "In evaluating community needs, it became apparent that pursuing a local partnership will enable St. Francis to stabilize current operations, grow market share and continue its mission to the poor and underserved," said Dan Sinnott, senior vice president of Catholic Health Initiatives. Catholic Health Initiatives and St. Francis staff will continue due diligence efforts to determine whether a joint operating agreement would help St. Francis continue to fulfill its mission in Trenton.
