PARAMUS, N.J. -- Bergen County would regain oversight of the state's largest hospital under pending legislation, reports northjersey.com.
Gov. Chris Christie will likely weigh-in on the measure, which directly affects operations at Bergen Regional Medical Center in Paramus, but extensive changes are not expected, reports northjersey.com.
The legislation passed both the Assembly and Senate and gives the county an 11-member board with authority over the hospital's operations, reports northjersey.com.
The county will soon request proposals seeking a new hospital management firm pending the 2017 contract expiring with the Bergen County Improvement Authority, reports northjersey.com.
