Kennedy Expands the Cherry Hill ER
A Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the new and expanded Emergency Department at Kennedy University Hospital in Cherry Hill was held on August 30th. The $9.7 million 5,000 square-foot expansion project greatly increases the size of the existing ED, bringing the square-footage from 7,600 feet to 12,600 feet, and the number of ED treatment bays from 17 to 29. Renovations are also being made to the existing Kennedy – Cherry Hill ED, which will be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2012.
