Oct. 09, 2017: Kennedy and Jefferson Health Announce New Hospital Names

Kennedy Health hospitals will now be known as Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital, Jefferson Stratford Hospital and Jefferson Washington Hospital. The renaming was announced today to unify Jefferson Health and its new southern New Jersey hub.

“Jefferson and South Jersey have always been a great match and through this marriage of Jefferson and Kennedy Health our patients will become the beneficiaries of the best of both organizations now becoming one,” said Stephen K. Klasko, MD, president and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health. 

“Like Kennedy Health, Jefferson has a well-deserved reputation for its commitment to the communities it is privileged to serve,” said Joseph W. Devine, FACHE, who will now serve in the role of president of the New Jersey division of Jefferson Health and executive vice president of hospital and health services for the system. “This partnership is about bringing expanded and specialized care to the community.” 

South Jersey residents will receive care from the same physicians, nurses and staff, including the orthopedic surgeons at the Rothman Institute, but also have access to Jefferson’s clinical services and clinical trials.
