Hospitals’ cut a cure, New Jersey Senate told
Citing a recent state report, New Jersey Health Commissioner Heather Howard told lawmakers the state may need to let some hospitals close in an effort to strengthen others. Of the state's 78 hospitals, four hospitals closed in the last 18 months. Four others announced plans to close, five filed for bankruptcy protection, and about half the others are losing money. Twenty years ago, New Jersey had 112 hospitals.
