Obstetrics emergency department
To meet the special needs and health concerns of our expectant mothers, we proudly offer dedicated Obstetrics Emergency Departments at Hoboken University Medical Center and Christ Hospital.
Here, you get award-winning care that’s always covered as “in-network” with any New Jersey insurance—including hospital stays.* Because you shouldn’t have to worry about insurance status when you’re experiencing an emergency.
These emergency departments within the Family Birth Unit are a first of their kind in New Jersey, offering patients greater ease of access, more privacy and highly focused care. Some features include:
- Specialist obstetric care for each patient
- Immediate assessment and intervention for patients with emergency obstetrical conditions
- Less wait time
- Facilities designed specifically for obstetrical care
- Greater privacy
- Less exposure to airborne illnesses
Please contact us at 201.821.8819 with any questions about the Obstetrics Emergency Departments or what to expect on the day of delivery.
*New Jersey law obligates NJ insurance companies to cover emergency room services as in-network. That means you are only responsible for your in-network deductible or out-of-pocket expenses, no matter where you receive care.
