A transformational renovation will reflect Newark Beth Israel's deep commitment to the community. 

An ambitious $100 million renovation project by Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBI) will literally change the face of the medical center and the Lyons Avenue landscape, as the  renderings on these pages show. “We are an anchor institution in Newark that is providing world-class care to the residents of the South Ward, the greater Newark area and beyond. It is important that our appearance reflect our commitment to the communities we serve,” says Darrell K. Terry, Sr., MHA, MPH, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of NBI and Children’s Hospital of New Jersey.

“Our patients and the general public will be able to see the progress we are making as they travel along Lyons Avenue.”

In addition, the renovation will include continued remodeling of the Maternity Unit, renovated Intensive Care Units and new Advanced Heart Failure Treatment and Transplant facilities. The groundbreaking will take place this spring. 

  • The hospital’s new main lobby will be a 9,300 square foot, glass-enclosed space that includes modern seating areas, community meeting spaces, an expansive registration area and cafes. This transformation will create a more welcoming space filled with transparency and natural light. It will invoke a sense of wellness and renewal for our patients, their families and our community,” says Terry.
  • The lobby interior will have a signature wall with a prismatic acrylic panel system and color-changing LED lights.
  • The Emergency Department will increase by 4,000 square feet, including a new fast-track treatment area.
  • The Pediatric Emergency Department will have a separate entrance and waiting room for young patients and their families.
  • The reimagined Emergency Department entrance on Lyons Avenue will have new exterior signage. “For many of our patients, the Emergency Department may be their first experience with our facility, and we want them to know we value that experience,” Terry says.
  • The medical center campus as it will appear from the corner of Lyons Avenue and Schuyler Avenue.
