Rutgers Launches Rutgers Health – Here’s What It Means for the Libraries

What is Rutgers Health?

“Rutgers Health is the clinical arm of Rutgers–the areas of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences and other Rutgers units devoted to caring for patients. A single brand for all of Rutgers’ patient care and services.” (from:

The Rutgers Health Group will serve as a single faculty practice, unifying existing specialties and clinical practices, comprising approximately 1,000 Rutgers-employed health care professionals. Members of the faculty practice will be from New Jersey Medical School, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and other RBHS and Rutgers schools–dentists, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and psychologists, and other health care professionals working in clinical settings throughout New Jersey.

The Rutgers Health Network will be an integrated network of Rutgers’ affiliated hospitals, community clinics, medical groups, wellness centers, and other affiliates collaborating to provide value-based care to patient populations across the state.

How will the Rutgers University Libraries support Rutgers Health?

There are two major user groups with full access to library resources–members of the RBHS faculty, students, and staff and members of the clinical (voluntary) faculty who oversee students and residents in affiliated hospitals and clinics throughout New Jersey.

As Rutgers Health launches, it is challenging to predict how utilization and demand for libraries-licensed high quality clinical and patient care resources will grow. Should you encounter questions about Rutgers Health which impact the libraries, please contact your colleagues at the RBHS Libraries.
