Atlantic Health System on Tuesday marked the opening of a new, 12,000-square-foot medical building in Newton.
The space will serve as the northern station of Atlantic Mobile Health, which includes the entire transportation fleet of Atlantic Ambulance, and AtHome Medical, which provides in-home medical equipment and supplies. It will also be the new home to part of AHS’s motor services division, which allows vehicles stationed in Newton to be serviced on-site.
The building, which is located directly across High Street from Newton Medical Center, will provide AHS team members easy access to resources and more readily put them to use in the community.
“Bringing both of these services into a bigger, more adaptable building of our own design gives us the freedom and additional capabilities to more easily respond to the needs of the Sussex County community,” David Ferguson, director of Atlantic Mobile Health and AtHome Medical, said.
The new station, which cost approximately $2.8 million to build, features three vehicle bays and ample parking. It was constructed by Beacon Construction Services.
