As the region’s largest healthcare organization, AtlantiCare employs more than 5,000 staff members and 600 physicians in nearly 70 locations.[1] In 2010, Modern Healthcare magazine named AtlantiCare to its list of "Best Places to Work in Healthcare."[2]

The AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center consists of two hospitals—the Atlantic City Campus in Atlantic City, NJ, and the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Division in Pomona, NJ.[3] The Mainland Campus, located on West Jimmie Leeds Road, opened in 1975. In 2005, AtlantiCare started a $35 million expansion project that included a new emergency department and the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth.[4] In 2009, the Mainland campus opened a $20 million Cardiac Catheterization & Rhythm Center.[5] Recognizing that it serves as a resource of critical community infrastructure, when AtlantiCare expanded the hospital in 2007, it took protective measures by building Harmony Pavilion to withstand a category 3 hurricane.[6]

In 2013, David Tilton, AtlantiCare president and CEO, led efforts to sign a letter of intent with Geisinger Health System in Pennsylvania.[7]

In 2014, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and AtlantiCare announced a partnership. CHOP Newborn & Pediatric Care at AtlantiCare delivers tertiary pediatric and subspecialist support to southeastern New Jersey. CHOP pediatric hospitalists are at the Stanley M. Grossman Pediatric Center at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Atlantic City Campus. CHOP neonatologists are at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus. CHOP clinicians also consult with emergency teams at both AtlantiCare hospitals.[8]
