On December 21 at 12:01 a.m., Capital Health assumed responsibility for health care services previously provided by St. Francis Medical Center. This transition of operations is necessary due to declining patient volumes and the serious financial distress faced by St. Francis Medical Center. That campus, which now operates an Emergency Department and some outpatient services, has been renamed Capital Health – East Trenton and no longer operates as an acute care hospital.
Due to this transition, we want to make sure prior St. Francis patients have the information needed to receive the care they need.
The St. Francis campus on Hamilton Avenue has been renamed Capital Health – East Trenton.
The Emergency Department remains open 24/7 in the same location. Patients needing hospital admission will be transferred appropriately for the care they need.
The Outpatient Primary Care Clinic, located next to the Emergency Department, remains open in the same location. Specialty Care Clinic Services are available at various locations based on specialty. Physicians in the medicine clinic can help direct patients to the appropriate specialty clinic.
C.A.R.E.S. remains open in the same location.
The LIFE program, has been renamed Capital Health LIFE and remains open in its Bordentown location. Assisted Living Program patients continue to receive care as they did prior to the transition.
