NJ board OKs Inspira Health's $326M hospital plan; commissioner to make final decision

New Jersey's health planning board approved Woodbury, N.J.-based Inspira Health Network's proposal to shutter its Woodbury location and replace it with a $326 million hospital in Harrison Township, N.J., reports Courier-Post.

Department of Health Commissioner Cathleen Bennett will issue a final decision on the board's recommendation within 120 days from the date she receives it.  

"This represents another positive step in the process and we look forward to receiving final approval so that we can begin construction of our new medical center," Inspira President and CEO John DiAngelo said in a statement to Courier-Post.

Last week the New Jersey Department of Health recommended the State Health Planning Board greenlight Inspira's proposal. Construction of the replacement hospital is expected to last three years if final approval is issued.
