Inspira's Mullica Hill Hospital On Track to Open in 2019Last Edited:
A new medical center in Mullica Hill is getting a few finishing touches before parts of it officially open to the public.
Seven months down, 10 more to go. Construction for a new Inspira medical center has been underway and officials say some services for patients will be available sooner than you think.
Patrick Nolan, COO of Inspira Medical Center Woodbury, calls it a new state of the art facility.
"For the Leading Edge Cancer Center Medical Office Building, that will open in late January," says Nolan. "It’s a roughly 45,000 square foot cancer center that will have two linear accelerators. It will [also] have full infusion bays as well as space for all types of oncology physicians.”
The medical center will be approximately 467,000 square feet, sitting on a 100 acre parcel of land allowing additional growth and services over time.
Tina McCormick, a clinical project manager says they are also creating more private spaces to create a comforting environment for patients, featuring 210 all-private patient rooms and smart room technology to enhance patient safety and experience.
“There is such a thing as room link," says McCormick. "When I walk by the room I’ll be able to see on an electronic display that’ll tell me - is the patient in insulation?Should they have nothing by mouth? Is there someone in the room with them?”
Sitting east of Route 322 and Route 55, close to Rowan University, Inspira intends to partner with the institution by giving students hands-on experience.
"We are working on a variety of things from how can we get medical students through, undergrads through, of all types," says Nolan. "Whether it's business, marketing nutrition [or] any of their other disciplines that they have. Hopefully provide that training, provide them that opportunity to keep jobs local in the community.”
Nolan says the hospital is expected to fully open to the public in November this year.
