Skanska USA celebrates grand opening of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill
MULLICA HILL, NJ — On November 8, Skanska USA, one of the world’s leading construction and development firms, celebrated the grand opening of Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. The new five-story, 465,000 square-foot inpatient hospital is Gloucester County’s first hospital to open in 45 years and will help meet growing demand in the region. With its partners Array Architects and Leach Wallace Associates, Skanska built Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill using the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, Skanska’s largest IPD project to date in North America. The approach, which brings together the client, designer and builder to align stakeholders and streamline project execution, brought approximately 400 local full-time jobs to the construction site. The new hospital will provide inpatient hospital care with 210 private rooms, state-of-the-art surgical suites, a modern emergency department with dedicated pediatric and senior ERs, and a maternity center. The project also includes a new central utility plant and solar field, which provides electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water to the facility.
