About the SIDS Center of NJ
The Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Center of New Jersey (SCNJ) is a statewide program based at two sites: The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick. Both sites abide by a three-pronged mission of bereavement support, public education, and participation in ongoing research efforts.
SCNJ was established through the efforts of Hackensack University Medical Center, the CJ Foundation for SIDS, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and The New Jersey State Department of Health and Senior Services. Funding is derived through public and private sources.
