Hospital-Based Violence Intervention 

University Hospital in Newark was the first in New Jersey to establish a hospital-based violence intervention program.  Hospital-based violence intervention programs (HVIPs) reach victims of gun violence and others touched by violence right at the time of crisis and are proven to reduce repeat injury. They seek to leverage those moments when medical treatment and recovery services can be combined with education, counseling, social services, and case management to prevent future involvement in violence.
