“This expansion is one of the many ways we are continuing to meet the needs of our community,” said Larisa Goganzer, RN, MSN, FACHE, chief operating officer, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. “Our goal is always to provide an exceptional patient experience and the highest quality of care. We’ve based this plan on feedback from our patients, staff, and providers. We’ve designed around our best practices and others in the healthcare industry. This expansion will enhance the efficiency with which we deliver care. The plan positions us to continue to provide high-quality care and to be prepared for future helathcare emergencies.”
AtlantiCare’s Board of Trustees approved the expansion in June. The project is in the design phase and will move next to the regulatory approvals phase. AtlantiCare anticipates it will begin construction in the first half of 2022 and that the project will conclude in 2024.
The first phase will include vertical construction of the two new floors. Phase 2 will include renovation of the existing second floor of the Meadow Pavilion for a new, expanded ICU.
Phase 3 will include renovating the second floor of the Harbor Pavilion (existing ICU) to become a dedicated 12-room Observation Unit.
Since ARMC Mainland Campus opened in June 1975, it has undergone many renovations and expansions to meet the health and wellness needs of the community. These have included a $62.5 million expansion of the main entrance and updates to the building in 2015. A $35 million expansion in 2005 featured a new Emergency Department and Center for Childbirth.
