PARAMUS, NJ – On August 3, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center will open its first satellite location, Bergen New Bridge Health at Barnert, located at 680 Broadway, Paterson.

“We have a unique and exciting opportunity to expand our ambulatory care center offerings and to make convenient, quality health care more accessible to North Jersey residents,” said Deborah Visconi, President and CEO of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center. “Our new site will be staffed with some of our hospital’s highly qualified, caring physician specialists, who will serve the needs of our local community members in a clean, comfortable and welcoming environment.”

Newly renovated, the former Barnert Hospital location will feature Rutgers New Jersey Medical School physicians providing care in nephrology, general surgery, endocrinology, cardiology, rheumatology and gastroenterology. Like the hospital’s main campus, Bergen New Bridge’s satellite location will follow all CDC guidance with frequent cleaning, disinfection, masking, temperature and respiratory illness and travel screenings. The facility is conveniently located near the New Jersey Transit Broadway bus terminal in Paterson and the Broadway bus stop and offers ample street parking.

“True to our longstanding commitment to address social determinants of health, we continue to broaden our efforts to bring specialized care into the diverse communities we serve, in order to best meet their healthcare needs and make access to care more convenient,” Visconi said. “This newest expansion aligns perfectly with the goals and objectives our medical center has established, based on the results of our recent community health needs assessment.”

Bergen New Bridge is in network with all major New Jersey commercial insurance plans.
