Newark, NJ-based University Hospital faces crisis

Newark Star-Ledger, December 16, 2008

Officials at Newark, NJ-based University Hospital say it desperately needs additional state funding to avert a financial meltdown. Officials at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, which operates the teaching hospital, say continued operating losses could threaten their ability to provide essential services. While employees and others in the community are now raising concern that the hospital may be on the brink of a shutdown, UMDNJ officials insist closing is not an option being considered.
