Over the last few years, patients, staff, physicians, local employers, residents and visitors have expressed their need for increased capacity and capabilities at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Mainland Campus. For AtlantiCare to continue meeting the healthcare needs in Atlantic County and the surrounding areas, a significant building and renovation project at Mainland is imperative. Some of the many factors that validate this need include:
AtlantiCare has initiated a transformation of the Mainland Campus that will include a 35,000-square-foot expansion and significant renovations to the existing facility. Here are some highlights of the project:
Addition and New Main Entrance
A two-and-a-half story addition at Mainland’s current front entrance will include a new reception area, lobby, registration center, gift shop, coffee bar, same-day surgery suite with 10 private patient bays and a dedicated elevator, a post anesthesia care unit (PACU) with 22 private rooms, a hybrid operating room and two new cardiothoracic operating rooms.
Many areas of the existing facility will be renovated, redesigned, relocated, modernized and/or expanded,
including the cafeteria and kitchen, existing registration area, sterile processing department, cardiac surgery offices, physician lounge, psychiatric inpatient unit, existing operating rooms, PACU, staff locker rooms and lounges, interior entrance for the Joint Institute, waiting area and support offices for operating rooms, intensive care unit and cardiovascular care unit.
Both the main visitor parking lot and the Center for Childbirth parking lot will be expanded and reconfigured to make parking more convenient for patients and guests.
The cost of the Mainland Transformation Project is approximately $62.5 million. AtlantiCare is seeking at least $5.5 million of this in community support to help us continue to offer the superior healthcare services our community needs and deserves. We invite individuals, foundations and corporations to join us as partners in providing this exciting new level of clinical capability. Together we can build a healthier community today, tomorrow and well into the future.
