Underwood-Memorial Hospital has been caring for the community ever since two dedicated and visionary physicians graduated from the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and settled in Gloucester County in the early days of the last century. Since J. Harris Underwood, MD, and William Brewer, MD, opened their respective hospitals within several blocks of one another here in Woodbury, their vision and mission has evolved into what ours is today.
Underwood-Memorial Hospital is a 305-licensed bed, acute-care, nonprofit hospital serving Gloucester County and parts of Salem and Camden counties. Underwood-Memorial continuosly receives the distinction of Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest independent accrediting body.
With over 1,800 full- and part-time employees and a medical staff of almost 400, Underwood provides a comprehensive array of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services in the comfort, convenience and security of a community hospital setting.
