Saint Peter’s University Hospital has entrusted EmCare with the administration and delivery of expert adult and pediatric emergency medicine services since 2009. EmCare, a leading provider of physician services for emergency departments, inpatient physician services, inpatient radiology management programs and anesthesiology services, was founded in 1972 and is a part of Emergency Medical Services Corporation, the leading provider of emergency medical services in the United States.
Saint Peter’s chose EmCare because it understands emergency medicine. Its physicians have the knowledge and experience to meet the challenges of a busy, full-service emergency department like Saint Peter’s.
Both of Saint Peter’s Emergency Departments are easily accessed via the same entrance off Easton Avenue on Park Boulevard in New Brunswick, NJ. As you near the hospital, well-marked signs guide patients and families directly to the emergency department door. Pull right up. Free valet parking is available at the Emergency Department entrance on Park Boulevard, eliminating the need to spend precious time looking for a parking space.
