To accommodate the increased need for care in its Emergency Department and modernization of Outpatient Services, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital will break ground for the next phase of its first major modernization project in almost 20 years later this summer. The $13 million project will include the construction of a new Emergency Department, a new Endoscopy Suite, and the creation of a Patient Access Center to house Central Registration, Pre-Admission Testing, the Lab Draw/Specimen Collection Department and a patient reception area. The EKG/EEG Department will also move to new space as part of the overall project.
In preparation for the Major Modernization Project, several other "enabling projects" were completed as plans were made over the last two years.
