LourdesCare at Cherry Hill

The Lourdes Health System is one of South Jersey’s leading healthcare providers with acute care hospitals in Camden and Willingboro and outpatient facilities located throughout the region. Committed to helping area residents maintain their health, Lourdes was an enthusiastic partner in developing LourdesCare at Cherry Hill, a one-stop ambulatory care center.

Located at the major crossroads of Marlton Pike (Route 70), Brace Road (Route 154) and Kings Highway (Route 41), LourdesCare resulted from the adaptive reuse of a seven-acre former “greyfield” site that sat abandoned for several years until being bought by Rosewood Real Estate Enterprises. There, Rosewood envisioned developing a modern urgent care facility that would advance the region’s quality of life. By offering a range of medical specialists under one roof, Lourdes can provide convenient and streamlined medical care for hundreds of patients daily.

But the realization of this dream could not be achieved alone. It came to fruition through the collaboration of many private and public stakeholders, including the developer, Lourdes Health System, Cherry Hill Township and Camden County – plus local residents and businesses, a private investment of approximately $20 million, and over 100 construction workers. The high-level of involvement and coordination among all parties helped to expedite the project from the initial concept meeting to the opening and first patient at LourdesCare in just 10 months, in March 2013.

This was no simple feat. Because of the site’s former uses, including a gas station and dry cleaner, the site required extensive environmental remediation. The existing structure also needed substantial renovations and alterations, including the replacement of all major systems. Internally, in addition to installing state-of-the-art technology for the high-quality and safe delivery of healthcare services, the common spaces and patient areas were decorated to create a comfortable and soothing environment.

LourdesCare created more than 110 full-time, high-quality jobs, in addition to its staff of 40 doctors and healthcare professionals.

Now, LourdesCare plans to expand its campus with an additional building at the corner of Brace Road and Route 70.
