A two-year-long renovation at Kennedy University Hospital came to a close Tuesday, as the hospital revealed a sparkling, $80 million addition to its Cherry Hill campus.
The day marked the end of the first phase of renovations at the campus. Several hundred people, including hospital administrators, doctors, nurses, community members and elected officials, arrived at the new building for a ribbon cutting ceremony, taking advantage of the opportunity to tour the new halls.
“It feels spectacular,” Joseph Devine, the President and CEO of Kennedy Health, said as several hundred people gathered beneath white tents before the ceremony. “I asked the team to do something special and it ended up being something spectacular.”
The renovations revealed Tuesday are the first part of a two-phase renovation intended to bring Cherry Hill and surrounding South Jersey communities a warm, welcoming, state-of-the-art hospital fit for the region, Devine said.
