Jefferson to begin work on $205M expansion on New Jersey hospital

South Jersey’s Jefferson Washington Township Hospital broke ground on its $205 million expansion project earlier this month.

The health facility will receive an eight-level parking garage, a seven-floor patient tower with a new lobby, a same-day surgery unit and recovery room, and a new processing distribution center.

“Our Washington Township facility continues to evolve and grow to meet the needs of the communities we serve,” said Joseph Devine, president of Jefferson Health in New Jersey in a Philadelphia Business Journal article. “We are thrilled to begin addressing the ever-increasing demand for parking on this campus. [The expansion will provide] a new level of service and patient-focused amenities to the people who depend on us for care.”

Jefferson Health Systems was recently ranked one of the best hospitals in the nation, coming in at 16 on U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospitals list.
