Last month, representatives from Rendina Healthcare Real Estate joined Clara Maass Medical Center CEO Mary Ellen, hospital employees, and town officials to celebrate the grand opening of the 87,000 square foot medical office/ICU addition in Belleville.
The facility was developed by Rendina as part of its ongoing relationship with RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey’s largest health system. Two years after breaking ground in early 2015, the new ICU addition opened to patients in April.
As the new front entrance to the hospital, the facility houses 43,000 square feet of Class-A physician office space and a state-of-the-art, 32-bed ICU, among other amenities.
Speaking at the ceremony, Hospital CEO Mary Ellen Clyne highlighted benefits the ambitious expansion will provide to the community.
“Whether the patients would stay here or need service that would require going to one of our affiliate hospitals, such as a trauma center or burn unit, we can take care of anyone who would come through the doors,” said Ms. Clyne.
Steve Barry, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Leasing for Rendina, praised the collaborative effort need to complete such a monumental task.
“To see such an important project become a reality is incredibly rewarding for our team. We are proud to partner with RWJBarnabas Health on a new facility that will further enhance the high quality care that is provided at Clara Maass Medical Center.”
