New Jersey has 75 community hospital around the state, meaning they do not include veterans hospitals or other federally managed facilities. Of these, 59 are nonprofit, 15 for-profit hospitals, and one — University Hospital, Newark — owned by the state.
Nonprofit hospitals have much higher admissions per 1,000 population than for-profits, according to statehealthfacts.org, a website from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, which tracks health statistics. In 2015, the last year for which statistics were available, there were 99 admissions/1,000 people to nonprofit hospitals and only 7/1,000 to for-profits. The difference is much starker for emergency room visits: there were 362 visits to the ER per 1,000 population for nonprofits versus 19/1,000 to for-profits.
Emergency room visits are down slightly, particularly to nonprofit hospitals, possibly due to the Affordable Care Act. Nonprofits saw a high of about 420/1,000 emergency room visits in 2012, the highest number in history and the first full year of the ACA. Statistics for 2016 are not yet available.
