It is known for its cardiac program, bloodless surgery program and breast care program headed by Miguel Sanchez. It was recently awarded a 4.7 million dollar federal grant to teach U.S. military doctors how to use such advanced bloodless treatment methods, for both patient health and overall cost advantages.
It was incorporated in 1888 as a "non-profit, non-sectarian voluntary health care facility devoted to the care, maintenance and cure of the sick, the injured and the infirm." It opened on June 14, 1890 in with 12 beds on a 3-acre (1.2 ha) tract of land on Engle Street.
In 2006, much of the nursing staff went on strike after the union and hospital were unable to reach an agreement over a recent reduction in benefits and pensions. Temporary nurses were brought in.
In 2013, the center was identified as the location of the terminus of Northern Branch Corridor Project, a proposal to extend the Hudson Bergen Light Rail into eastern Bergen County. It has also been identified as a terminal of the proposed Bergen BRT system.
While in high school, baseball pitcher Rob Kaminsky raised over $30,000 through his Strikeout Challenge charity for the pediatric cancer ward at Englewood Hospital, as he asked supporters to donate whatever amount they chose for each strikeout he recorded in his senior year in 2013.
