Inspira Health Network Selects Skanska USA to Build $350M Hospital in New Jersey
HARRISON, N.J. — Inspira Health Network has selected Skanska USA to build its new $350 million Gloucester County hospital in Harrison. The five-story, 204-bed hospital will be the fourth in-patient facility for the South Jersey health system, which has medical centers in Vineland, Elmer and Woodbury, N.J. Inspira purchased the land for the new hospital from Rowan University in an $11.5 million deal, which was finalized in March. The new hospital will include the construction of a main patient tower with operating rooms, an emergency department, imaging suites, as well as administrative, dining and support services. Additionally, the project will include building a new central utility plant that will provide electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water to the new hospital. Project members include Array Architects and Leach Wallace Associates. Construction is slated to begin during the first quarter of 2017, with completion expected by December 2019.
