Inspira Health recently celebrated the completion of its $356 million state-of-the-art medical facility in Mullica Hill, N.J. The first new medical facility in Gloucester County in nearly 45 years, Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill sits on a 100-acre parcel adjacent to Rowan University’s West Campus.
The 465,000-square-foot facility hosts 210 private rooms equipped with smart room technology designed to enhance clinical quality, safety and the patient experience. The project also includes a new central utility plant and solar field, which provides electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water to the facility.
“This is a tremendous moment for South Jersey, Gloucester County and our health system,” says John DiAngelo, president and CEO of Inspira Health. “With this new hospital, our commitment to providing exceptional care for our community, in our community reaches a new level. We are absolutely thrilled to bring the latest in health care to the people of Gloucester County and surrounding communities.”
The medical center is slated to open in December and will include:
- Modern, home-like maternity center featuring 15 labor/delivery/recovery/post-partum suites.
- 62-room emergency department, including dedicated pediatric and senior spaces.
- Cardiac cath lab with emergency services for heart attack patients.
- Digital health records for enhanced coordination of care and patient safety.
- State-of-the-art surgical suites, including two robot-assisted surgery systems and hybrid operating room for advanced vascular procedures.
Inspira broke ground on its new hospital in March of 2017. Array Architects, Leach Wallace Associates, and construction firm Skanska built Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill using the integrated project delivery approach. The approach, which brings together the client, designer and builder to align stakeholders and streamline project execution, brought approximately 400 local full-time jobs to the construction site.
In 2018, construction began on an adjoining leading-edge cancer center. Approximately half of the 100-acre parcel remains available for future projects, which may include medical office buildings and education facilities.
“[This] milestone is the realization of our long-term vision to provide exceptional care in a state-of-the-art facility to the residents of Gloucester County,” DiAngelo says.
