Officials say the new expansion will allow the hospital to continue to grow and provide more high-quality care and services to the residents of South Jersey.

"Nobody should have to leave New Jersey for whether it's the greatest clinical trials or genomics or all the things you read about in the best university hospitals so that's what today is all about," said Stephen Klasko, president and CEO of Jefferson Health.

"Instead of bringing New Jersey to Jefferson it's bringing Jefferson to Washington Township."

Phase one of the Jefferson Washington Township Hospital expansion project is scheduled to be completed next spring and includes constructing a new 800-spot, eight-level parking garage that will be free to patients and visitors.

Phase two of the project is set to begin next year.
