UH Newark unveils $1.8B master plan for new hospital

Newark, N.J.-based University Hospital is making progress on a plan to replace its current facility with the unveiling of a $1.8 billion master plan, according to a Jan. 29 New Jersey Business Magazine report.

The plan, designed by global architecture, design and planning company Gensler, was presented at a regular board meeting where new president and CEO Ed Jimenez was also handed control of the 519-bed hospital.

The hospital, which is the principal teaching hospital of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and opened in 1979, needs about $20 million in emergency repairs annually, according to former CEO Shereef Elnahal, MD, who had called for an up to $1.4 billion replacement hospital.
