Atlantic Health System – Why Work For Us?


At Atlantic Health System, believe our patient-centered approach to care, collaborative spirit and respect for the environment is what makes us a great place to work. Our promise to our communities is that all who enter our system receive the highest quality care delivered at the right time, at the right place, and at the right cost. We are committed to creating a Trusted Network of Caring®.

Our healing culture relies on an integrative approach that considers both the physical and emotional well-being of our patients. To help them feel more comfortable during a normally stressful time, we incorporate compassion and respect as a part of every treatment plan. As soon as a patient comes through our door, we are dedicated to providing them the help they need in a timely manner. We’re also finding ways to prevent avoidable illness and injury, and help all people live healthy and happy lives.

That same level of respect extends to those who work in our hospitals and throughout our organization. Through collaboration, support and open communication, we offer a nurturing environment where employees have the tools they need to grow both personally and professionally. A shared sense of empowerment helps everyone feel inspired knowing they are working together to bring world-class care to the people of our communities.

Our care for the environment also defines who we are as an organization and preserving our national resources is an increasing concern. To that end, we pursue recycling and energy saving policies, as well as paperless means of communication, such as our free, monthly hospital e-newsletters. Our buildings contain materials with recycled fibers and use energy-efficient ventilation systems, and our environmental services departments use Green Seal-certified cleaning products whenever possible.


The nurses at Atlantic Health System play an integral role in delivering the highest quality of care for our patients. Everyone employed here is valued for both their individual contributions and their teamwork. Their compassion and demonstrated focus on evidence-based care and research ensures our continued leadership. In addition, Morristown Medical Center’s third consecutive Magnet® designation for Nursing Excellence underscores our commitment to patients, nurses, and our strong vision for the future.

Within our hospitals, Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Hospital – you’ll find a supportive environment and a collaborative spirit where you can share your unique talents with other professionals who are highly respected in their field. What’s more, by working with one of the largest, non-profit health systems in New Jersey, you’ll have access to some of the most advanced equipment and treatments available today.

So, whether it’s acute, inpatient or outpatient care, you’ll find that Atlantic Health System is a great place to work and an ideal place to grow in your career.

At Atlantic Health System, we strive for an inclusive health care environment where patients, visitors and employees are welcomed and afforded the same treatment regardless of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, immigration status, socioeconomic background, disability and age.

We not only value diversity, but we are also committed to inclusivity – the practice of engaging with diverse populations when making decisions that affect the health and well-being of our communities. Atlantic Health System organizes diverse workgroups of community representatives at each hospital location to develop and implement programs that address the specific health care needs of our surrounding populations. Learn more by reading our Community Benefit Reports >

Within our hospitals, some of the programs and policies we have implemented include:

  • Establishing support groups and educational classes for vulnerable populations – such as people living with HIV and AIDS, and non-English speaking families who are expecting children
  • Revising patient visitation policies to allow for more inclusion and respect for all families and visitors
  • Expanding pastoral and spiritual care for patients of all faith communities
  • Translating “Patient Rights," patient forms and medical records into Spanish and other languages
  • Enhancing interpretation of languages other than English through new technologies
  • Improving meal services to accommodate diverse dietary and nutritional preferences

Our hospitals also build upon programs championed by our Healing Culture Council. These ongoing initiatives feature events and activities that promote connection, healing, diversity, empowerment and creativity, thereby helping build and sustain community within our walls. Learn more about our commitment to championing a diverse and inclusive workplace >
