While Memorial Hospital of Salem County struggled under the weight of a changing healthcare landscape during its nearly 100 year history, the management and board of Salem Medical Center has, among them, decades of experience leading similar community based hospitals and healthcare providers to success.

Our passion, knowledge, and expertise is set to bring a healthcare renaissance to Salem County, revitalizing the hospital into a state-of-the-art center of excellence that will be economically stable and enriching to the currently underserved population of the area.
