AtlantiCare marks milestone in $75M expansion of Mainland Campus

AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center‘s Mainland Campus in Pomona last week celebrated the placement of the ceremonial final beam of its $75 million expansion.

AtlantiCare providers, leaders and staff signed the steel and wrote inspiring messages on it before NJ Ironworkers Local 399 hoisted it into place.

The multiphase project will add two floors and 35,000 square feet of space to the existing two-floor Meadow Pavilion of the campus. It will also feature the renovation of 23,000 square feet of the Meadow Pavilion and of additional areas of the hospital.

“This expansion is one of the many ways we are enhancing our programs and services to care for our community today and in the future,” Larisa Goganzer, chief operating officer, ARMC, stated. “We continually strive to enhance the care experience and environment for our customers, staff, and providers.”

Expansion highlights will include:

  • Addition of 50 private medical/surgical rooms, 12 of which will have bedside dialysis capability;
  • A new Intensive Care Unit with 14 private rooms;
  • Creation of a 12-bed dedicated observation unit;
  • Increased elevator capacity;
  • Increased negative pressure capacity.

AtlantiCare estimates it will open the new medical/surgical patient rooms in 2024. It anticipates completing the expansion in 2025, the same year it will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1975 opening of the Mainland Campus.
