Gottheimer Celebrates Veterans Receiving Expanded Healthcare Access at New Bridge Medical Center

Jan 29, 2018

Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined local leaders to announce that New Bridge Medical Center has been designated a “Veterans Choice” facility by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. As a result of this agreement, veterans will be able to receive procedures and treatment at New Bridge Medical Center that would otherwise require travel to the VA’s East Orange campus.

Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) said, “Among my proudest moments in office are the opportunities to help the 32,000 Fifth District veterans I am honored to represent. Bergen County has done incredible work reimagining New Bridge Medical Center, making sure that it cares for Bergen County veterans and protects our ill. I know that with The County’s vision for the future of New Bridge Medical Center, this is only the beginning of a long road of expanded care for Bergen County and for North Jersey veterans.”
