TRENTON – Two hospitals in Jersey City are among eight financially distressed hospitals that will receive a portion of $30 million in grants, the state Department of Health and Senior Services announced on Friday.
Christ Hospital in Jersey City Heights will receive $7 million and Jersey City Medical Center will receive a grant of $6 million.
The financially troubled Christ Hospital filed for bankruptcy and a federal bankruptcy judge awarded the hospital to one of two bidders on March 27, paving the way for that bidder, Hudson Hospital Holdco LLC, to buy the struggling medical facility. Read our detailed story about the process here.
Hudson Holdco owns and operates the Hoboken University Medical Center and the Bayonne Medical Center.
