The final steel beam has been installed for the Inspira Health Leading-Edge Cancer Center in Mullica Hill.
The building will be an attached addition to the future 465,000-square-foot Mullica Hill hospital building. Both facilities are being constructed by Skanska USA, of Blue Bell, Pa. The new hospital building is slated to open this fall while the $70 million cancer center is projected to open in January 2020.
The cancer center building will be approximately 120,000 square feet and include several suites devoted to non-cancer-related clinical and office functions including cardiac rehab, physical therapy and other rehab services, women’s imaging, maternal fetal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, urology, orthopedics, preadmission testing, lab draw services, and an Inspira retail pharmacy.
An event commemorating the event included remarks by M. Todd Way, executive vice president of operations, Inspira Health; John DiAngelo, president and chief executive officer, Inspira Health; Michael McLaughlin, chairman of Inspira Health Board; Gary Galloway, chairman of Inspira Hospital Board; Dr. Carl Minniti, medical director of Inspira Medical Center Woodbury Cancer Program; and Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-3rd District.
“Skanska has specialized expertise in building world-class medical facilities, and we’re thrilled to continue our work with Inspira as the hospital project adds additional specialty care space to better serve the residents of Gloucester County,” said Todd Lofgren, Skanska Senior vice president and account manager. “With this addition, Inspira can provide quality care to even more people in the community.”
