On May 24, Inspira Health Network broke ground for its new $349 million, 467,000-square-foot hospital in Mullica Hill, N.J.

The 204-bed hospital will include all private rooms, a user-friendly layout for outpatients and inpatients, plenty of natural light in patient rooms and common areas, wayfinding technology for patients and visitors, rapid access to a single electronic health record for each patient and SmartRoom technology that will provide patients and caregivers with real-time information and access to educational materials and entertainment.

The new facility received approval from the New Jersey Department of Health in March. Its design includes two five-floor patient wings, with space available for a third to be added should need arise. A medical office building, walking track and healing garden are also planned.

CBRE Healthcare is providing owner’s representative services for the new medical facility, including preconstruction, on-site project management, master budget and schedule development, project delivery team selection assistance, contract negotiation, project cost and schedule management, and project delivery team coordination.

Additional team members include Array Architects (architect), Leach Wallace Associates (engineering), Skanska (construction manager), Mitchell Planning (equipment planning) and T&M Associates (civil engineer).
