Hospitals New Jersey 2006-2008

Description
This point dataset represents hospitals in New Jersey. Included in this dataset are General Medical and Surgical Hospitals, Psychiatric and Substance Abuse Hospitals, and Specialty Hospitals (e.g., Children's Hospitals, Cancer Hospitals, Maternity Hospitals, Rehabilitation Hospitals, etc.).TGS has made a concerted effort to include all general medical/surgical hospitals in New Jersey. Other types of hospitals are included if they were represented in datasets sent by the state. Therefore, not all of the specialty hospitals in New Jersey are represented in this dataset.Hospitals operated by the Veterans Administration (VA) are included, even if the state they are located in does not license VA Hospitals.Nursing homes and Urgent Care facilities are excluded because they are included in a separate dataset. Locations that are administrative offices only are excluded from the dataset.Records with "-DOD" appended to the end of the [NAME] value are located on a military base, as defined by the Defense Installation Spatial Data Infrastructure (DISDI) military installations and military range boundaries.Text fields in this dataset have been set to all upper case to facilitate consistent database engine search results.All diacritics (e.g., the German umlaut or the Spanish tilde) have been replaced with their closest equivalent English character to facilitate use with database systems that may not support diacritics.The currentness of this dataset is indicated by the [CONTDATE] field. Based upon this field, the oldest record dates from 12/22/2006 and the newest record dates from 05/05/2008.
