Jersey Shore University Medical Center to open 10-story, $256M patient tower

Pending final approval from the New Jersey Health Department, Neptune City-based Jersey Shore University Medical Center will open its 10-story tower to patients the week of June 18, according to a ROI-NJ report.  

The HOPE Tower, which had a construction price tag of $256 million, took three years to build. It will offer behavioral health consulting, clinical research, pediatric care and OB-GYN services.

Hospital officials said the main goal of the tower was to consolidate services into one building for patients.

"Many of the practices we have are scattered up and down Route 33 and the region, and so this is a way to consolidate everything into one place and come to the patient," Jersey Shore University Medical Center President Dr. Kenneth Sable, MD, told ROI-NJ.
