Clara Maass Medical Center

Clara Maass Medical Center is a hospital in Belleville, Essex County, New Jersey, United States, that is part of the Barnabas Health. It was founded in 1868 as the Newark German Hospital, and was renamed in 1952 in honor of Clara Maass, a former nurse who trained there at the hospital's Christina Trefz Training School for Nurses, and become the hospital's head nurse. Maass' 1901 death during yellow fever experiments attracted national attention.

In 1956 a new building was completed in Belleville, which is sometimes referred to as "The Hospital in the Park" due to its location opposite Branch Brook Park. In 2009, the hospital was staffed by over 550 physicians with 1,600 total employees.
