SADDLE BROOK, NJ — (12-26-18) — According to the New Jersey Department of Health, more than 3,000 patients of an outpatient New Jersey hospital, have been notified that they may have been exposed to hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.
The patients received care at HealthPlus Surgery Center located at 190 Midland Ave in Saddle Brook, between January and Sept. 7, said the New Jersey Department of Health.
