Company Profile
In 1946, Hunterdon was the only county in the state of New Jersey without a hospital. Rose Angell, who was the County’s welfare director, decided that this was unacceptable, and with the help of Louise Leicester, a public relations specialist, she approached the Hunterdon County Board of Agriculture with a plea to build our county a hospital. Residents of Hunterdon county banded together to raise the funds to create their community hospital. In 1953,HunterdonMedicalCenter opened its doors and drew national attention for focusing on wellness and primary care.
