I'm a native New Yorker, but have lived in NJ for years. I know 2 people who work at Valley (neither are Doctors). As "theshareprice30" eluded to -- it is in a affluent area (i.e. Ridgewood). The surrounding areas are affluent as well - Ho-Ho-Kus, Allentown, Saddle River, etc. Anyway... Valley is a very well known and good hospital, albeit, a relatively smaller facility, than say a St. Barnabas or Hackensack Medical Center.
