Atlantic Health System emergency department expansion underway

The expansion and modernization project at Morristown (N.J.) Medical Center Sameth Emergency Department is on schedule and expected to be completed in 2024. 

The new emergency department will have nearly 100 adult treatment rooms and bays and will allow for the relocation of the adult behavioral health unit, providing space that will have natural light, additional space, soothing colors and enhanced patient comforts, according to a July 27 news release from Morristown-based Atlantic Health System. 

Exterior construction is underway for a dedicated ambulance entrance for pediatric patients at Gagnon Children's Emergency Department, as well as a separate pediatric exterior vestibule walk-in entry. There will also be a new pediatric ambulance canopy and parking area as well as valet parking for Goryeb Children's Hospital. 

Interior work has also advanced significantly, according to the release. This includes the replication of the pediatric day hospital and sleep center, an outpatient unit for procedures that require sedation or special monitoring.
