Health Care

Millburn-Short Hills residents have access to the finest medical facilities in the country.

Since 1865, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, New Jersey’s oldest nonprofit, nonsectarian hospital, has worked to exceed our community’s highest expectations for compassionate care, healthcare excellence and superior service. Their commitment to excellence is illustrated by their numerous designations from national organizations.

As New Jersey’s only certified burn center, the medical center draws adult and pediatric patients from all over the state. The Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division is one of the 10 largest programs in the U.S.

The critically acclaimed Regional Perinatal Center provides care for the smallest high‐risk and critically ill infants in New Jersey’s leading Level III, 56‐bed neonatal intensive care unit. The Heart Centers offer a comprehensive array of cardiac services and procedures including open heart surgery and transcatheter aortic valve replacements. The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas – a clinical partner of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the state’s only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – offers a coordinated program including medical, surgical and radiation oncology with the expertise and compassion to treat a wide range of cancers. For those with disorders of the chest, the thoracic surgery team provides the most appropriate minimally invasive surgical techniques. The majority of patients have video-assisted thoracoscopic, laparoscopic or robotic surgeries to minimize blood loss and reduce postoperative pain, resulting in shorter hospital stays and a faster recovery to daily activities. The Breast Center at the Ambulatory Care Center – one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive breast diagnostic centers – performs close to 60,000 procedures annually with coordinated care and patient navigation to the medical and surgical expertise and services available through Saint Barnabas Medical Center.

The medical center is accredited by the Joint Commission and the American Medical Association Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The medical center is a major teaching affiliate of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Saint Barnabas Medical Center is also a clinical site for both of New Jersey’s physician assistant training schools. The medical staff representing 100 medical and surgical specialty and subspecialty services, shares medical expertise with medical students, residents and fellows.

Many local physicians (primary care and specialists); dentists, counselors and physical therapists offer first-rate medical treatment, and a local pharmacy is a convenient place for residents to fill prescriptions and obtain related advice. The Millburn-Short Hills Volunteer First Aid Squad responds to emergencies throughout the township.
