Madison is conveniently serviced by three of the finest, and ever-expanding, medical facilities in northern New Jersey — Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and St. Barnabas Medical Center. Almost all of the important medical specialties are handled by these three hospitals, including cardiology, oncology and pediatrics, with links to world-class medical centers in New York City.

Morristown Medical Center was ranked by Castle Connolly Medical, ltd. in 2012 as the No. 1 Overall Hospital in New Jersey. The Gagnon Cardiovascular Institude was ranked No. 1 for heart failure treatment and coronary bypass surgery. The Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical has received the American College of Surgeons Outstanding Achievement Award for cancer care, which is awarded to fewer than 15 percent of hospitals in the country and the Goryeb Children’s Hospital provides unparalleled pediatric care.

Overlook Medical Center is nationally recognized for its emergency department and is one of five New Jersey hospitals approved to provide emergency angioplasty in a community hospital setting. With the state’s first combined PET/CT scanner and stereotactic radiosurgery cancer treatment program, the hospital continually demonstrates the ability to stay at the forefront of technology. The Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook was ranked #1 in New Jersey by Castle Connolly for treatment of neurological disorders.

St. Barnabas Medical Center and Ambulatory Care Center provides treatment and services for more than 300,000 outpatient visits annually. It was listed in the top 50 of all hospitals in America by HealthGrades, an independent healthcare ranking organization. Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Joint Institute recently earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for Orthopedic Joint Replacements and the Burn Center at St. Barnabas is the only state-certified burn treatment facility in New Jersey and one of the largest in the country.

Alternative medicines are represented as well with the growing chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and stress-relief businesses in town. Madison also has a wide variety of assisted-living centers and nursing homes that service the needs of residents.
