Be Our Hospital’s Hero!
Emergency Department Renovation Project
The Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Emergency Department Renovation Project is driven by the growing needs of our region. In this unprecedented time, our community hospital was at COVID-19 ground zero. At the start of the pandemic and again during this surge, Bergen County has some of the highest numbers of COVID-19 cases. Every hospital in our area has suffered a financial hardship as a result of the pandemic and we are no exception. This health crisis made it clear that we needed to expand our Emergency Department to be able to treat highly infectious diseases and still manage mental health emergencies. Given the highly contagious nature of COVID-19, we need to be able to separate the COVID positive patients from the patients without COVID or its symptoms as well as accommodate the increased volume of patients that are suffering from the mental health and substance use epidemics fueled by the pandemic.
Project Goal: To provide enhanced functionality and improve access to lifesaving emergency medical and mental health and substance use disorder treatment services by renovating the existing space in the current footprint of the Emergency Department and space in the Behavioral Health Division in order to add a new Behavioral Health Emergency Department walk-in entrance, registration area, and triage area.
With your support, we will enhance and expand our emergency capabilities to ensure we can meet the growing needs of our diverse communities.
The Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Medical Center dedicated to enhancing the lives of the patients, long term care residents, and communities served by Bergen New Bridge Medical Center.
