MULLICA HILL — Inspira Health Network recently celebrated the installation of the final steel beam for its new state-of-the-art medical center in Mullica Hill. The construction began one year ago, and Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill is expected to open in late 2019.
“Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill will ensure that our network will be able to meet the growing and changing health care needs of Gloucester County residents by providing high quality care and convenient access for decades to come,” said John DiAngelo, president and CEO of Inspira Health Network.
The $356 million medical center is located just east of the intersection of Route 322 and Route 55, adjacent to the West Campus of Rowan University. Its proximity to Rowan University will provide many opportunities for research and education within and beyond the health sciences.
The new hospital will include and provide: 210 private patient rooms, the latest in medical and communication technology, 16 home-like birthing suites, a pediatric emergency department with six rooms and adjacent six-bed inpatient pediatric unit, a comprehensive cancer program, emergency angioplasty for heart attack patients, an emergency department with 36 patient rooms, valet parking, wayfinding technology to make finding your way easier, and conveniently located outpatient services.
The new medical center will be approximately 467,000 square feet in size and sit on a 100-acre parcel that will allow for additional growth and complimentary services over time.
As inpatient care from Inspira Medical Center Woodbury transitions to the new hospital, a number of clinical services, including an emergency department, medical imaging and behavioral health, will continue to be provided in Woodbury. Several non-clinical departments will also be located on the Woodbury campus.
Inspira leadership continues to partner with the City of Woodbury and the Gloucester County Improvement Authority to create a redevelopment plan for the Woodbury campus.
