Jersey City Greenville Hospital

  Greenville Hospital began as a small outpatient dispensary in 1898. The hospital was founded by the Suabian Sick Benefit and Folks Festival Society, a group of concerned citizens. As a result of their efforts property was purchased and the hospital was built. On October 1, 1898, a charter was granted to the "German Hospital and Dispensary of Hudson County, New Jersey." Thus began a century of service to teh people of Jersey City and Hudson County, New Jersey. The stated object and purpose of that corporation was "to care for, nurture the sick, injured, or those afflicted by disease, or victims of accidents or casualty, and for the training, education and instruction or preparation of persons, male or female, to act as nurses."

The site of the present building was dedicated in May 1912. In 1918, at the onset of the hostilities of World War I, the original German Hospital was renamed Greenville Hospital reflecting the name of the community it served. A building program started in 1925 added new services to meet the increasing needs of the community. The building on Kennedy Boulevard was completed in 1964 and the west wing in 1971.

The hospital became part of Liberty HealthCare System, Inc. in 1990, when it joined Jersey City Medical Center and it's Family Health Center as partners in community care. In 1991, Greenville re-established itself as a center of community pride for patients, as inpatient services and outpatient care was strengthened.

Greenville Hospital has over 150 qualified physicians, a dedicated management team and a conscientious staff.

Greenville Hospital's mission of providing quality health care, and it's motto of "Partners in Care-Sharing Time and Resources", remains the same today as they were when the hospital was founded.
