Thanks to a $4 million gift from ZT Systems, the largest corporate pledge in Englewood Health’s history, a celebration was held Wednesday for the opening of the Englewood Health ZT Systems Outpatient Center at 2 Journal Square at Jersey City.
Physicians, local leaders and members of the community gathered for the ribbon-cutting at the three-floor, 73,000-plus-square-foot facility, made possible by the historic philanthropic gift from ZT Systems. The site offers urgent care, primary care, imaging and over a dozen specialty care services to the Hudson County community.
“Travel should never be a barrier to comprehensive, high-quality health care,” Warren Geller, CEO and president of Englewood Health, stated.
“ZT Systems is proud to support Englewood Health in giving back to the local community by bringing urgent care, primary care, imaging and laboratory services, specialty care and more to Jersey City,” Frank Zhang, CEO and president of ZT Systems, said. “The Englewood Health Foundation shares our company’s values of partnership and people first, and we are very excited to be a part of this important initiative.”
With primary and specialty care available, the outpatient medical center offers a comprehensive facility complete with diagnostics right where people live and work.
From orthopedic experts to a variety of specialties including pulmonology, gastroenterology, dermatology, neurology, bariatric and general surgery, colon and rectal surgery, behavioral health and vascular surgery, the entire community’s health needs can easily be met.
A diabetes center on the second floor offers patients access to diabetes education and nutritional counseling, as well as podiatry and endocrinology. Also on the second floor are hematology and oncology offices.
“For over 130 years, Englewood Health has provided personalized, compassionate care to the residents of northern New Jersey and beyond,” Dr. Stephen Brunnquell, president of the Englewood Health Physician Network, said. “While our reach has included Jersey City and the people who live and work there, the addition of this new location at Journal Square will be a game-changer. With increased access to expertise, services and screenings, people will be able to get the care they need, when they need it, right in their own neighborhood.”
Additionally, Englewood Hospital Imaging at Jersey City comprises a full-service imaging center, offering highly sophisticated technology and advanced diagnostic testing. It opens to patients Oct. 3.
The facility will offer multimodal imaging using state-of-the-art equipment, including:
- 3T MRI: Body/musculoskeletal, breast, neuro, MR elastography;
- 128-Slice CT and full-service CT: CT angiography, cardiac CTA including FFRct;
- Women’s imaging: 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, stereotactic biopsy;

- Maternal fetal medicine: Perinatology, high-risk obstetrical ultrasound, amniocentesis, nuchal translucency screening.
A major focus of this new center is to bring Englewood Health’s expert breast services into the community.“Getting an annual mammogram in Hudson County just got easier,” Dr. Mindy Goldfischer, chief of breast imaging at Englewood Health and medical director of the Leslie Simon Breast Care and Cytodiagnosis Center at Englewood Health, said.
In addition, Englewood Health’s breast cancer disease management team — which includes medical oncologists, breast surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists and geneticists — works together to create individual care plans for each of their patients.
Located on the main level, Englewood Health Urgent Care at Jersey City offers same-day, walk-in services for adults and children with non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, as well as preventive care services, routine vaccinations and telemedicine.
