Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital is a 600-bed Level I Trauma Center, tertiary care hospital, and the primary teaching hospital of the Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

The Radiology Department of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital performs approximately 209,000 diagnostic radiology examinations a year. Approximately 8,800 Vascular/Interventional procedures are performed each year by fellowship-trained Vascular/Interventional radiologists and Neurointerventional radiologists. Typically, two Vascular/Interventional radiologists and one Neuroradiologist are present in the Interventional Radiology suite.
