Newark Beth Israel Construction Update June 8, 2021

Notice: Beginning Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at approximately 7 a.m., all visitors and patients coming to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center’s Emergency Department must enter through the doors closest to the ambulance bay. New pedestrian and wheelchair accessible ramps have been created to direct all patients and visitors to the new temporary entrance.

The main entrance to the Emergency Department will be closed for the duration of construction in this area.

This is the largest expansion of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center since 1967. The $150 million expansion project will include a new 17,000-square-foot, glass-enclosed main lobby, expanded adult and pediatric emergency departments, new hybrid operating rooms, and a dedicated center for all cardiac services.
