A Message from Our CEO

Welcome to CareWell Health! This is a proud moment for our historic institution. CareWell Health Medical Center, formally known as East Orange General Hospital, is a true community hospital serving Essex County, a place where every patient is family.

Our new name and brand represent our commitment to transforming this vital community asset, signaling a fresh start for this organization. Generations of children, parents, friends and loved ones have turned to us for help, hope, and healing – and we look forward to continuing to serve Essex County for many more decades to come.
