Jul 10, 2024

WOODBURY, NJ (July 10, 2024)Inspira Health unveiled its two-story pavilion and EMS building in Woodbury; opening this Fall. Inspira Health is finalizing submission for Department of Health approvals. The Inspira Health Center Woodbury Pavilion will house a state-of-the-art 25,000-square-foot satellite emergency department and a 18,500-square-foot inpatient behavioral health program. The new behavioral health space will represent a first-of-its-kind single occupancy short term care program for adults in the region. This project is part of a larger reinvestment and redevelopment of the Woodbury campus, which also includes the recently remodeled medical office building and family medicine center.

The pavilion is located at 30 Oak Street in Woodbury, directly across from Inspira’s existing satellite emergency department. The new EMS station is also on Oak St.

“The redevelopment of our services in Woodbury illustrates Inspira’s unwavering dedication to enhancing health care services, greater access and addressing the growing demands of the community,” said Amy Mansue, President and CEO of Inspira Health. "We're not just building facilities; we're creating a health care experience that adapts to and anticipates the needs of those we serve. This new construction on the Woodbury campus reflects our vision where advanced care and innovation intersect."

The new satellite emergency department will include 20 private treatment rooms, which are larger than those in the existing Woodbury ED. The larger size will support inclusive family-team health care, which is especially important for families with children. Additionally, four rooms are specially designed to create a safe and calming environment for patients in crisis. The new ED features comfortable furniture with built-in charging stations, hydration stations and large-screen TVs in each room.

The new inpatient behavioral health center offers 20, first-of-its-kind in the region, private rooms; enhancing privacy and safety. The unit is significantly larger than the existing one on the Woodbury campus and incorporates an open floor plan design and furnishings that promote safety and well-being. Special features include sensory/quiet rooms that have full wall murals, rocking chairs and additional features to assist with mood regulation. An exercise room, open-air basketball court and garden space will be used for recreation and therapy.

New Jersey State Senator, Nilsa Cruz-Perez, (LD5), Assembly Majority Leader, Louis D. Greenwald (LD6), Assemblyman William “Bill” F. Moen (LD5), and Assemblyman William “Bill” Spearman (LD5) all played crucial roles in helping Inspira navigate the process, secure funds and support the construction of the site.  

“Seeing this plan come to fruition is a milestone day and win for Woodbury. The need for critically important and advanced behavioral health care services, a new, state-of-the-art emergency department and new EMS Station all represent the delivery of fundamental resources for individuals and families in South Jersey today and for years to come,” said New Jersey State Senator, Nilsa Cruz-Perez.

When the pavilion opens later this year, it will pave the way for even greater redevelopment, including the planned Woodbury Health and Education Innovation District, which was announced last year. As part of the city's strategy, the campus is envisioned to be a catalyst attracting further business, enhancing local infrastructure, and stimulating economic growth.

“We are immensely proud of the forward-thinking and successful collaboration Inspira Health and the City of Woodbury have embarked on in providing greater access to care through these much-needed behavioral health, emergency department and EMS sites of service for our residents and visitors. The future is bright for Woodbury, and we will continue partnering to deliver top tier quality of life enhancements in Gloucester and surrounding counties,” said Woodbury Mayor, Kyle Miller.

Inspira’s development partner for the Woodbury redevelopment project is CBRE, the nation’s leading health care real estate strategic advisory firm.
