HackensackUMC Finally Gains Approval to Open Pascack Valley Hospital in NJ

Hackensack (N.J.). University Medical Center has announced the state has approved the reopening of the former Pascack Valley Hospital in Westwood, N.J., after more than a year of planning.

HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley will be a 128-bed, full-service, acute-care community hospital and will include all private patient rooms, an obstetrical unit, an intensive/critical care unit, five operating rooms, one special procedure room and a cardiac catheterization laboratory.

The approval by state Commissioner Mary O'Dowd marks the end of a long-fought battle between HackensackUMC and neighboring facilities Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J., and Englewood (N.J.) Hospital and Medical Center.

HackensackUMC filed a petition with the New Jersey Department of Health to reopen Pascack Valley Hospital in December 2010.
